Fodor's Review

Don't be fooled by the stark exterior, as this house dating from 1810 is a charming place to stay. It's surrounded by woodland and plenty of places to fish (guide service and instruction provided). Lovely antique and reproduction furniture fills the simple but elegant rooms. Log fires and sturdy Scottish cuisine add to the appeal. Prix-fixe meals at the restaurant might include haggis-stuffed sirloin with Glenmorangie whisky sauce.
