On arrival our first impression was 'WOW!'. We were greeted with a cheery smile and shown everything we could need from afternoon tea with homemade cake in the drawing room to the honesty bar for a large G&T! We had the Scottish room, which was beautifully decorated with attention to detail that made it really special, and we looked out onto the courtyard that has a magnificent fountain as the centre piece.
Dinner was a set menu with any likes/preferences, dietary requirements and dislikes taken into account. Twice baked cheese souffle that tickled the tastebuds, followed by Organic Lamb that is produced on the farm and homemade meringue icecream - I couldn't move afterwards because the food was so delicious I didn't want to leave a scrap! We trundled into breakfast at 9am with a full selection of continental to choose from cereal, fruit, yoghurt and juices as well as anything cooked. My boyfriend had a Full breakfast which covered every inch of china and I had scrambled eggs and smoked salmon - home smoked so the waitress told me, so I placed an order for a side to be sent to my parents.
To top it off, we weren't rushed out of our room as soon as we paid, we took a lovely stroll into the hills of the estate, through fields of sheep and a smattering of highland coos - up on the hill is absolutely breathtaking. Somewhere that I hope to return on a more regular basis - definitely somewhere you can become addicted to!
I have never stayed anywhere so accomodating, service with a smile is an understatement, the staff really looked like they loved being at work, and great value for everything we got; £45pppn and £26.50 for dinner, an absolute bargin!
Thank you so much again for your wonderful hospitality.
