My mum celebrates her 60th birthday next February and I am tasked with trying to find a suitable hotel for about 12 of us to stay at and have a celebration meal. Requirements are that it is fairly easily reachable from England - so probably Southern Scotland / Borders / East Coast? Ideally near water -and ideally a traditional, characterful type of hotel with a restaurant serving great local food. Not much to ask I know...
My plan was to go to my favourite - The George in Inverary, which combines all the above and more - but sadly they cannot accomodate us.
Does anyone know of anywhere that would be worth looking at - I'd be very grateful for any suggestions.
