My one-night stay coincided with the hottest day of the year and I was concerned that my ground floor room would mean I couldn't leave the windows open overnight - and I could see only a tiny ventilation slit in them. However the wardrobe contained a very pleasant surprise in the form of an electric fan which worked efficiently and did the trick. It was a bit noisy, however. Other nice touches included the iron and ironing board, accompanied by a tiny, dolly-sized plastic jug in case you wanted to do some steam ironing (although I would have thought long and hard before embarking on such a task in the 30 degree heat!). And two sachets of hot chocolate as well as the usual coffee and tea. I was in the Coachman's Room (aka Room 10) which was in fact an integral part of the hotel building but, being at the back, didn't have a view of Loch Earn. My room windows looked on to a gravel driveway and I did wonder whether this would prove noisy but it didn't, at all. Achray House prides itself on its fine cuisine and sure enough the breakfast menu was not your average, run-of-the-mill fare. A "bowl of seasonal fresh fruits" turned out to be tiny but delicious and there was home-made bread. If the menu had not said that what came with my scrambled egg was home-smoked salmon, I would have sworn it was home-smoked haddock, which was also on the menu but served with a poached egg. A bit of a mystery that, but the views over the loch were a wonderful distraction. The hotel has a relaxed feel about it but management and housekeeping standards are clearly very high.
