We stayed on a tour of Scotland last month and it was one of the best nights sleep I have had. The hosts were very accommodating as we arrived late after a huge detour and they opened the kitchen and prepared us a lovely 2 course meal. Will stay again next time we are in the area.

We booked for a meal for three, thinking that, being attached to a golf course, there would be a buzz about the restaurant. When we arrived for our meal, the notice outside said the restaurant was closed, but as the door open we went in. The place was empty - no customers, no staff. After a few minutes someone appeared,...

The staff were nice tho, I am always suspicious when a place is not used by the locals for food........ but as a previous reviewer said nothing wrong with the food at all, it was just missing that something...... stayed in the suite next to the bar and overheard many conversations being held...

We stayed here earlier this week and had a great, relaxing time. Our room was clean, spacious, well appointed, and had doors right onto the terrace overlooking the loch. Perfect! I even persuaded my husband we should try the hot tub, which we did while sipping drinks brought to us by our host. And the next morning we were treated...
