We stayed a the Boy's Dormitory for a week this April for our first trip to Scotland. It was the best experience we have ever had in all of our years of traveling. The location at the foot of Loch Ness was gorgeous. The property was so serene and beautiful we could have stayed there all week and been happy!...
