We had such an amazing stay at Ben Cruachan. My parents arrived from South Africa and we decided to travel from the England to Scotland for a visit. Jackie was an incredible hostess always willing to offer advise on the local and not so local areas. Breakfast was always delicious. We would definitively visit again!!!
