When we arrived in Stonehaven, it was difficult to spot places with accommodation when driving thru. We parked the car in the town centre and went for a walk about the town. We ended up by the local harbour and spotted The Ship Inn really by chance. To our luck they had vacancies and we booked a lovely room with King size bed and a fantastic harbour view. The room had been refurbished two years ago and it felt really luxurious. We have visited GB on many occasions and this was in fact the nicest room with the best view we have ever experienced. On the evening of our arrival we enjoyed a lovely meal in The Ship Inn's restaurant. A very friendly staff provided great service and good food. The atmosphere was very relaxed. It started pouring down with rain outside, but it soon stopped and a perfect rainbow was displayed across the entire harbour. It lasted for over 10 minutes, so we got many photo opportunities both outside and from our room. The next day we enjoyed a lovely breakfast at The Ship Inn before continuing our trip up to Aberdeen. We had a lovely experience at The Ship Inn and we will definitely return on our next trip to Scotland.
