Stopped with friends for coffee. By the time John had allowed us to look at his amazing selection of bric a brac for sale, we decided to stay for lunch. Best bowl of scotch broth I have tasted. Yum. John and Barbera perfect hosts. Place is spotless and very welcomming. Will definately return.

We stopped off here to break the journey from the Scottish Highlands to Cheshire with our dog, it turned out to be the just what we needed.

Hotel was nice enough, lots of history to look at (Though the strange mannequins dotted around were quite out of place), the grounds were nice to walk through too. The rooms were a little rustic but the beds were comfortable enough for me and my wife to get a good nights sleep before continuing on our journey up to Scotland.... More
