Convenient location for both Glasgow and Livingston/Edinburgh, magnificent hotel set in some beautiful grounds. I dined in the bar area which was quite good compared to some hotels. The menu wasn't that extensive however it was reasonably priced the meal I had offered good value for money. Drinks again were reasonably priced Breakfast was very good in real pleasant surroundings.... More

At the end of it, in front of you lies a large and imposing building straight out of a John Buchan novel... a genuine old country house hotel. It is a favourite destination for weddings and... More

Nice hotel lovely settings but few issues with not being able to eat at the lounge . sink wouldn't empty when filled also water wasn't very hot . I tried to order a sandwich at the lounge bar and was told they couldn't make one. The hotel was extremely beautiful and the gardens were amazing .

Facilities accommodate gatherings for two or 250 guests, with ample free parking. Nearby attractions:-Falls of Clyde, Royal Burgh of Lanark, Roslyn Chapel (noted in the 'Da Vinci Code'), Lanark Loch, Clyde Valley Tourist Route, Tinto Hill, The Glenmuir Outlet.
