Original home of the founder of Glen Livet Distillery, Minore is smack bang next to the distillery on the beautiful Glenlivet Estate.
A beautiful but comfortable old house, it is a great location for fishing which can be done on the A'an or the Spey and walking. Lynne will provide you with a map of the estate.
Our room was very comfortable and very nice with a bath rather than a shower (much better after a long walk or a long `fish'). We were also allowed to take our dog which was great. The hotel does also boast some suites which are plusher and so no dogs allowed in there (quite right too).
We had vowed not to have the much admired afternoon tea and to save ourselves for dinner but after a 15 mile walk in the rain,I needed some sustenance so joined the others in the drawing room. Afternoon tea is beautifully presented in silver teapots and dainty cups and saucers along with a choice of salmon sandwiches and a sumptuous array of home baked cakes. MMMM. Didn't seem to affect my appetite either as I ate every morsel of Vicotr's beautifully cooked five course dinner that night.
Dinner is a social occasion with guests gathering in the bar ahead of the 7.45pm sitting. Fishing exploits are shared and there is a chance to meet people from other places in the world or just keep yourselves to yourselves if preferred. The bar is comfy and cosy - the sort of place that you could settle in for the night if you weren't lured into the dining room by Victor who tells you in advance course by course what he is preparing. Both nights' dinner were wonderful.
We are going to book for next year and take our friends - a great place!
