The room and the bathroom were quite small,...

We recently returned from a wonderful three night stay at Ben Cruachan and can honestly say that it is the best place we have ever stayed! A lot of 5 star hotels could learn a lot from Carole and George and their attention to detail that makes this guest house so special! Everywhere is spotlessly clean,the bedrooms are beautifully appointed...
