Way out in the middle of nowhere
Posted Jul 17, 2015
This is definitely not the place to stay if you are wanting to sight see in the area. It takes a long, long time to get to the hotel, and the nearest restaurant is at least 40 minutes away. Given the price and reviews, we had high expectations. However, in a month-long tour of the UK and France, this was definitely the most disappointing place we stayed. Ironically, it was also the most expensive. We stayed in bed-and-breakfasts and 4- and 5-star hotels the whole month - all surpassed this hotel for cleanliness, quality, and friendliness of staff. This hotel was pretentious, but without the quality to back it up. However, the hotel and grounds are in a beautiful setting, and the scenery around Scotland was definitely not lacking! Other highlights were hiking around the hotel. I'd only recommend the hotel if your focus is to enjoy the grounds and get away from it all.
