The Grange

Value offers
  Everything is ‘immaculately presented’ at John and Joan Campbell’s Victorian Gothic house with a turret and pointed gable, which stands in secluded landscaped gardens sloping down to Loch Linnhe. There are loch views from the dining room and the three bedrooms, which are supplied with ‘just about everything’, from glassware and candles, lamps, cushions and ornaments, to fresh fruit, a decanter of sherry, binoculars and even playing cards. The Turret Room has a Louis XV bed, a chandelier, armchairs. Rob Roy has a king-size bed, and a bathroom with both a bath and a walk-in shower. In a garden room there is an elegant sitting area approached through an arch between bed and bathroom. Furniture is of ‘the highest quality’. Joan Campbell welcomes guests with offers of tea and home-made shortbread, and talks them through how things are run. Breakfast, served until 9 am, has fresh fruit; porridge with whisky and honey; smoked haddock with cream sauce; pancakes with bacon and maple syrup; the owners say they are happy ‘to accommodate all tastes’. The town centre is within walking distance.  
  • We were impressed by the welcome on arrival at this gracious house in a delightful garden high above Loch Linnhe. Our large bedroom (Rob Roy) looked over the loch, and binoculars were provided. Just about everything was there, including playing cards, clothes brush, ironing board, iron, sherry, apples, teddy, even a penguin in the bath! Everything was immaculate. The bathroom had a walk-in shower and bath, a multitude of mirrors, but little space for personal belongings due to the displays of glassware, flowers, ornaments, candles. It was like being part of a film set. In the lovely lounge, there were so many beautiful cushions that they had to be removed before we could sit down. Breakfast was strictly no later than 9am. Dishes are chosen from a menu the evening before. You tick boxes. Interesting items included smoked haddock with a cream sauce, scotch pancakes with bacon and maple syrup. The dining room was delightful, with beautiful furnishings and a fire lit on a damp morning.
