After a medical bombshell, we had to radically change our plans to celebrate our Ruby Wedding Anniversary. Oh well, maybe next year, New York. Once we got over the shock, we thought about alternatives. As frequent visitors to Ben Vrackie, we have often enjoyed a beer in the bar and thought about how nice it would be not to have to drive back home but to work through the range of real ales. So we booked the Highland Delights package to make it a little special.
We had a great time - and no jet lag! The room was a good size, spotless with a very comfy, enormous bed. Breakfast choice was very good, although too much sampling of those beers the previous night meant that I stuck to the porridge. Both dinners were served in the restaurant and the food was very tasty. My only quibble was that the dining room was almost empty on the second night which made it a bit lacking in atmosphere.
Yes, the decor is a bit old style Highland with lots of stuffed animals but it is totally in keeping with the age and style of the building. All the staff were friendly and very helpful.
Will we stay again? You betcha. Would I change anything? Yes, one night eating in the bar. Did I miss New York? Well, a bit but I doubt it would have been half so relaxing or friendly
