“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2007

We stayed here during a tour of the North of Scotland. Our visit was the highlight of our tour.

A lot of thought has gone into the bedrooms, making good use of period furniture. Our room was very comfortable and very homely. There was a spacious en-suite bathroom stocked with Moulton Brown toiletries and a good supply of luxurious towels.

We just fell in love with lounge which is filled with an extensive collection of books. Bibliophiles will enter the lounge and will never want to leave!

Dinner was excellent. Each course was a delight, with a wide variety of flavours working together to provide memorable dishes. There is an excellent selection of wines for such a small establishment, with the very knowledgeable Kerensa on hand to provide guidance in choosing a wine, if required. The menu is set although you are asked if you have any dislikes or dietary requirements when you book. Michael is an excellent Chef and obviously loves cooking. Breakfast was also excellent, bringing our short visit to a wonderful conclusion.

Kerensa and Michael have created a truly unique and superb establishment. You must visit. We will visit again as soon as we can.

We have been a number of times and keep meaning to write a review.

Michael & Kerensa have always made us feel welcome. We had had just been on a round trip of Scotland and were very tired when we arrived. We were welcomed with fresh pancakes and coffee in the drawing room.

The rooms are immaculately finished, it is obvious that every thing has been carefully thought out.

Onto the food, the aperitifs of the little cheese biscuits are to die for. It is obvious that the food is cooked with passion and a love of cooking. we waited for each course with growing expectation and were never disappointed.

We would highly recommend 2 Quail but please do not to ensure that we can get booked next time.
