Great stay
The hotel is full of highland spirit and quite an old building. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Plenty of onsite parking at the back of the hotel or there’s some spaces to the front too. Bar was closed due to the restrictions so can’t comment but the restaurant was well thought out with the restrictions and they had an open fire. The room had everything that you needed and was very comfortable. The breakfast that is included is a bag to go which is quite good and the portions for 2 people were generous
