From booking to checking out Balmashanner was a joy. Nice remote location with lovely scenery which is what we wanted. We arrived to a warm friendly welcome like we had arrived at an Aunt and Uncles house for the weekend. Rooms are lovely, homely and clean. Breakfast, we had a perfectly cooked full breakfast, served in your room whilst you look out the window to the lovely Scottish countryside. Close to Forfar, we chose the Chapter & Verse for a meal and it was lovely food. Curries were actually really good (and I'm from the home of the Balti) and their soup was divine! Quick trip to the next pub The Stag then back to the Chapter that had live music. Local taxi driver was a lovely chap and helpful. Close enough to Glamis and many castles. Would definitely return again soon.
Thank you Robert for your superb Scottish hospitality!
