This imposing baronial house sits amid formal gardens and overlooks the river Clyde and verdant woodlands. Clad in dark stone, the building itself is slightly forbidding, but the interior has been redesigned to reflect the luxurious style of its original mid-19th-century construction. The Grand Hall, hung with tapestries, looks out onto greenery and is a restful place for afternoon tea or evening cocktails. The guest rooms vary in size, but many are built around grand
four-poster beds draped in silk and satin. The restaurant is elegant and comfortable, and the menu emphasizes local ingredients in dishes like rack of lamb with braised oxtail and white beans. The Aveda Spa offers a wide range of treatments, and the lovely swimming pool is a great place to rest after a round on the riverbank golf course.
