Visited her for a wedding and have to say the waiting staff were very professional, the setting is gorgeous and the food is amazing..... only thing is the steak and ale pie was somehow sweet though? Over all very nice day.

Stayed in lodges again, with same friends for annual golf tournament. Almost entirely positive and new refit of bar and terrace is excellent. Food this year was very nice. Only comments would be that they badly need fitted sheets on beds to avoid sticking to plastic undersheet every morning (!!) and lodges possibly just in need of a freshen up... More

Did not stay so cannot comment. The restaurant was well appointed and the food was of a good standard. The staff, although correct, lacked to a certain extent, a bit of warmth and a smile. I asked for a steak knife as the lamb was a little tough and it was correctly delivered but wordlessly set down.

Hello, Thanks for your review! I am sorry about the tartare sauce, our chefs prepare it fresh and unfortunately the delivery had been delayed last Tuesday so we were short of the ingredients and in a bit of a pickle, pardon the pun!

Stayed for 3 nights midweek in August 2016 in a 6 person, and pet friendly, lodge called 'Glen Logie'. I've never taken a pet on holiday before but the lodge was immaculate and wouldn't have known the difference.
