Good Hotel Guide Review
The surroundings are vast: well-kept lawns lead to thick woodland; there are waterfalls, a tumbling burn, an old Victorian trout pond and a private beach. Inside this pretty Victorian hunting lodge, however, things shrink down to a human scale, as hosts Laurence and Katie Mackay create a ‘house-party atmosphere’, encouraging guests to mingle over drinks and nibbles in one of the ‘charming’ sitting rooms. Come dinnertime, new chef Michael Scotford serves an extensive menu focusing on Scottish produce: try island seafood terrine, Scottish pork belly; Loch Awe sea trout, seared kale, beurre blanc. Bedrooms, each with its own style, are traditionally decorated with touches of countryside florals; book one with views over the garden and loch. In the morning, wake to breakfast choices including a full Scottish, Loch Fyne kippers and locally smoked haddock, then head out to explore. Ask about ranger-accompanied forest wildlife walks – the white-tailed Mull eagles are a sight to see. More reports, please.
