Was getting my annual WHW walk out the way early this year and have camped here but never stayed in hotel and I wanted to stay in a cabin so this place is perfect. This place has possibly one of the best views in Scotland in it's garden, so camping, cabins or hotel rooms, this place is an absolute must.... More

Mark & Helen are making some good changes to what is already one of my favourite hotels. We stayed in the cabins and although it was the middle of winter they were still plenty comfortable and warm enough. Some nice and novel options on the menu as well.

Thanks Paul, we appreciate you taking the time to write a review. It means a lot to us. We are gearing up for the new menu in April and it was good to test out some of the dishes as specials. The Rabbit Stew has definitely made it through! See you soon Helen & Mark More

I stayed in one of the comfortable cabins for a night as part of a larger gathering of people. The owners were very welcoming and the establishment itself is first class. A very welcoming "Bothy Bar" proved an ideal venue for an impromptu ceilidh, as the full Scottish breakfast in the morning provided the perfect pick-me-up. i also enjoyed a... More

We stayed here at end of January 2015. There were 5 of us ( all adults) and our dog. Within 5 minutes from our arrival, the owner Mark welcomed us to the hotel and immediately ensured we felt very much at ease. Our rooms were warm and very welcoming. We ate ( and definitely drank) within the hotel and cannot... More

We have just returned from a stay in the hotel over New Year. Helen and Mark really put on a fun New Year celebration, including a piper at mid-night !! Great atmosphere...
