I've cycled from Forfar twice now to the Glenisla hotel for lunchtime soup, its homemade & fantastic. You won't find any better. Great inn & friendly staff too. If you visit in winter the wood burning fire is lovely.

After this hotel being recommended to us for a meal, we decided to pay it a visit without a reservation which seemed to not pose an issue.

We had an overnight stay here at the weekend. Room 5 was above the bar, and the bar was busy with a private party until nearly 2am. Needless to say we didn't get much sleep. The room was quirky with a number of details making it appear unfinished which is a shame as they would be easy to rectify. The... More

My wide and I walked here as we were staying locally. The bar is dog friendly and the owner is knowledgeable about the beers. There were two real ales on, plus Innis and Gunn craft lager and then a few of the usual suspects. The bar has a collection of rums and whiskies. We ate lunch, starting with chilli topped... More

We arrived there after a hard days walk on the Cateran Trail and were treated very well. We were shown to our room straight away, had a shower and then went downstairs for some liquid refreshments and then a lovely meal. Our hosts couldn't do enough for us and we stayed for two nights. A packed lunch was given as... More

There is a very good selection of starters, mains, deserts and specials. The staff are more than friendly and very accommodating. Value for money is very good, portions more than sufficient for people who have been out on the hill all day and the quality of the food is excellent.
