    We experienced the usual very high standards that are maintained at this hotel. The location is superb, virtually opening onto the beach and giving splendid views of the southern Scottish coastline. The food served at dinner never fails to surprise by its quality and innovation.

    It is a lovely secluded bay, forest tracks as well as the gardens, stretch of beach at the back of the hotel, there is also a cliff walk that can be taken from the hotel, no doubt they could supply you with more information.
