Had a lovely meal here on a rather dreich evening in August. The dining room has a fantastic view and the food was excellent with some nice Scottish twists on well-established favourites. The service was very good and would be happy to return anytime (although would prefer better weather next time).

Well it's not what I call a pie, a bowl... More

We had a lovely swim and sauna followed by hearty smoked haddock chowder with unlimited bread and followed by lovely coffee. The staff are so helpful and friendly and... More

We had reservations so we had a window seat and a view of the sunset behind the mountains. The food was very good. The service was also very pleasant.

As we knew of the hotel (having stayed in one of their cottages) we thought as we were in the area we would have lunch there. There was no bar lunch menu to speak of ( one with very little choice)and going off the main menu I felt that over £40 for haggis neeps and taties plus 2 burgers and... More
