When we planned our driving holiday in Scotland this year we had just one “must do” – another stay at Glengarry House where we’d stayed on a previous West Highland Way walk.
There was a genuinely warm welcome, a pot of tea and some of Ellen’s divine flapjacks to reassure us that nothing had changed and our stay was to be every bit as good as our last one.
The en suite room was comfortable, well-furnished and a good size with a good quality flat-screen TV – now with digital reception (which visitors to some parts of Scotland over the years will welcome after the fuzzy pictures of the past!). There is also a comfortable conservatory in which to relax after a hard day.
There is a well-cooked excellent quality breakfast in a light and airy dining room and, on our first night we opted for an evening meal - beautiful food, beautifully cooked with a home-made dessert.
All of this places Glengarry House in an excellent position when compared with others – but it’s set above the rest by an extra secret ingredient – Ellen and Andy’s welcome and hospitality.
We look for professionalism and high standards wherever we stay – and, if our stay achieves these ideals (at a fair price) we are content. There’s another aspect, though, which can’t be faked and is difficult to find – a genuine pride in making the visitors’ stay everything it should be. Andy and Ellen exude an easy charm and friendliness, always have time to chat and want all of their visitors to get everything they can from their stay and from the area.
Don’t think twice, stay here and, don’t think twice – have an evening meal!
