The owners are real foodies and it shows. The menu is limited but of very high quality, mostly locally sourced. Any dietary requirements are catered for but advance notice is necessary.
A small example of their standard is that porridge has to be ordered the night before! Never heard of this before but the reason is laudable. They only use the best of produce, properly prepared, and that applies even to porridge. Theirs is done the original Scottish way and has to be soaked overnight. That same attention to detail applies to all they do.
The staff and owners are very attentive. For example, they looked out for us returning from a walk and would then phone up to ask if we wanted afternoon tea served in our room or in the conservatory.
The hotel itself is not ultra grand or modern. It is a bit dog eared in parts but, overall, quite acceptable.
Plenty of good walking in the area and some world class beaches. The area is undergoing a drought (in Scotland!) and we were blessed with fine weather.
