Good Hotel Guide Review
A gem of a hotel’ in ‘a beautiful situation, with a view of the loch and the occasional eagle overhead’, Laurence and Katie Mackay’s Victorian country house delighted readers again this year. ‘It is silent (apart from the tumbling burn that runs down through the garden to the loch), the air crisp and clear, no light pollution – who cares if mobile signals are weak and Wi-Fi patchy?’ The hosts are praised for their ‘warmth, friendliness, local knowledge and enthusiasm’. The Garden bedroom, ‘accessed from the side of the house’, is spacious, with traditional-style furniture, ‘very comfortable bed’, posh toiletries, ‘everything you could wish for’. The atmosphere is that of a country house party. ‘Dinner times were relaxed (just come when you want to) and we enjoyed talking to fellow guests over drinks.’ Katie Mackay’s menus showcase ‘fantastic Scottish ingredients’. ‘Think tender Lochbuie rib-eye in a cream and grain mustard sauce, juicy, pink rack of island lamb, poached sea trout, lobster, halibut. All very, very enjoyable.’ Breakfast brings ‘light, warm croissants’, ‘amazing smoked haddock’, ‘soft, juicy poached kippers’, ‘black pudding to die for’. (Caroline Thomson, David Birnie)
