We found the hotel on the internet when arranging a short family break in Scotland. We had a warm welcome when we arrived however the rooms were a bit tired and expected it to redeem itself when we went down to dinner as the pictures of the dinning room on the net looked good as did the menu. However there were only 2 tables including ours occupied and the food was the same as the bar menu so nothing special as was the service - the breakfast the following day was equally disappointing. The hotel itself has loads of potential and in great location however the quality of the service and the food let it down badly.
