My partner and I just returned from a 3-night stay in Torrdarach and it was by far the best place I've stayed. The room (Room 2) was amazing: big comfy bed, brilliantly powerful shower, lovely decor and a beautiful view from a bay window, across the garden and down the hill.
During the day, the view was lovely and at night we turned out the lights and watched bats zip back and forth chasing the moths around the garden. Even though there is a road outside, it was so quiet we were able to keep the windows open the whole time we were there and take full advantage of the fresh country air.
Breakfast in the conservatory was just as wonderful, everything seemed to be either homemade (including the granola, my breakfast of choice) or local produce and Struan cooked up a storm in the kitchen from a traditional cooked breakfast to smoked salmon, done in his homemade smoker. Watching the red squirrel enjoy his breakfast in the garden made it that bit more special.
Overall Struan and Louise did a wonderful job, managing to be invisible most of the time but always popping up just when you need them or to make sure you're enjoying your stay. And they are more than happy to have a chat and point out the best places in town.
Even after three nights I didn't want to leave and I'm already looking for another oppourtunity to get back out of the city and will more than likely stay in Torrdarach again...if they're not fully booked of course.
