Fodor's Expert Review Glen Clova Hotel

B955, Glen Clova, Angus, DD8 4QS, Scotland

Since the 1850s, the hospitality of this hotel has lifted the spirits of many a bone-tired hill walker, and it remains as comfortable a spot as ever today. The cheery bedrooms all have bathrooms en suite; ask for the Junior Suite for a rolltop bath with Glen views. The legendary Climbers Bar pours a fine pint—or glass of wine—and is often packed with walkers and climbers, many of whom are staying in the hotel's basic and well-heated bunkhouse or luxury lodges. The restaurant serves good home cooking; think soups, casseroles, and pies. Live music and ceilidhs take place in the spacious function suite.
