“The Perfect Valentine”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Special Valentine Dinner was good addition to the normal menu, also available that night. Dining room suitably dressed for the accasion. Log fire, candles, flowers, just perfect. Service attentive and alert, but not obsequious.We had asked for our favourite room above the dininging room for the night. Success, even tho' only staying one night. . Impeccable room, nice mixture of very old and very new. Giant bed. dressed to get lost in. Good view from ancient window with low -level seat. Complementary sherry a final brillant touch, as was the little tub of sweets. Good freeview TV . A perfect night's sleep followed by an excellent breakfast. We chose from the "full Scottish"selection. Kippers, smoked haddock etc. also available. As good as you will find...Staff excellent throughout. How to run an Inn!!!

“It's in the Guiness book of world records!”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

'Nuff said. It's a very pretty drive to see it as well. On the way you drive on what used to the be the Roman road (one of the only straight bits on road in Scotand).

“Unsuspecting world record breaker!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

You could drive past this without realising what you were seeing, despite it being signposted from either direction! It is just a beech hedge, but what a hedge - even more spectacular as it has been allowed to grow above the traffic height and seems so much taller than when I last visited more than 10 years ago! We seemed to time it just right as far as the changing colours go and they had half the road on traffic lights as they seemed to be about to be trim/cut it and there were TV cameras there too. This meant we were forced to drive more slowly past it than we might have otherwise done; this also gave us a safer view than parking up at the south end and trying to dodge the traffic to get some photos!

“A good size”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

How big will they get and how long has it taken them to get this big, it must be a long time. I would not like them to come down in a gail as the road would be blocked for ages

Beautiful in the summer but a bit disappointing in winter. Always reminds me that I'm heading home when I pass them tho
