Booked using a Groupon coupon, and having read some reviews was expecting disaster.
Nothing was further from the truth, what a lovely place, not to far off the main A74 but in the middle of nowhere!
Greeted at the door, details taken and shown to our rooms, The Otterburn and the Killiecrankie.
Both enormous rooms, enormous beds and enormous tellys. All the usual amenities, tea and coffee makings, soap shampoo and lots of candles!
Down for the included dinner, enjoyed by all, staff lovely and helpful. Relax in lounge, lots of sloppy sofas and seats. so to bed
Slept like a log, dressed and down for a full Scottish breakfast ... the sausages were edible.. must have been good. gallons of coffee and tea.
Off to Glasgy for the day shopping. Evening meal at a Chinese.. review later.. back to hotel.. be warned it's a hour from Glasgow and the country roads are bendy.
Last night, full breakfast, and off home via Metro Centre.
Excellent stay, couple of comments, heating needs sorting, but aware of problems, nice new boiler room noticed, bathroom finishes a bit rough, but it's a work in progress, the Yuill's are to be congratulated on their efforts.
