I was told that I am now a 'stobo pro' as this is my 6th visit. Here's to many more. Took my husband for his first time and he loved it. People are always made to feel special but left alone enough to unwind. Food is fab as always and was so excited to see James is still working there!... More

I go to stobo regularly at least twice a year and it never disappoints. Just returned from yet another trip and feel wonderful. Getting a different room each time helps to pick the best one for future. Was given Jordan this time and had the best sleep ever.

This was a much needed stop after walking some of the Great Highland Way. The castle looks incredible set in beautiful grounds. So far so good! On arrival the reception was first class. Friendly, helpful....gave us a quick walk around to orientate ourselves....and could not have done more. This turned out to be par for the course for Stobo staff.... More
