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.

Guest comments

'If it is possible, it is improving! The food has always been excellent and locally grown, but it is now even better, a delightful culinary experience with surprises on every plate of delicious tastes, and no repeats in the week we were there. Bed linen crisp, and rooms relaxing. The country house-party atmosphere helps turn this into a place to return to and always meet great people. The staff are a delight. ' - Gillian Todd - June, 2013
'A delightful, wonderful place. A warm welcome, as usual. Our room had lovely views to Loch Scridain. The food was delicious. We met some lovely people: guests are encouraged to gather before dinner in either of the two charming sitting rooms. We went on a memorable trip to see sea eagles. ' - Barbara Watkinson - June, 2012
'Very good. Lawrene is a friendly host, full of good advice. Very good food. Lovely garden running down to the sesa. ' - Charles Grant - August, 2011
