We had a fabulous time here! This hotel was taken over by new owners in the Spring of 2013 and it is going from strength to strength. I stayed in a beautifully decorated room, with a fabulous cosy goose-down duvet, lovely new en-suite and a great view of the Highlands. I took a group of university students for a weekend and we had a fabulous time - great food, very knowledgeable hosts in Julie & Ian who spent time chatting to us, advising on walks and outdoor activities, and we had great meals - hearty cooked breakfasts, lovely packed lunches and home-cooked evening meals at the weekend. All our dietary requirements including gluten-free, vegetarian etc were catered for really well. We enjoyed the wee on-site bar and sitting by the fire in the residents' lounge. Most of all it is cosy, welcoming, friendly and a home from home - I will definitely be going back again - a great base for walking, cycling, enjoying the outdoors, or just relaxing - can't recommend it highly enough - and importantly, great value for money.
