Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Derek and Celia are just fabulous,’ praised visitors this year. ‘Friendly, efficient – and they’ve done a magnificent job in maintaining and enhancing this former tweed mill. We wish we’d stayed longer.’ The Kitchingmans and their ‘enchanting’ restaurant-with-rooms on the River Gynack keep gaining fans. The ‘extraordinary food’ is well liked too. Chef David Skiggs presents ‘beautiful, high-quality cooking’, using seasonal Scottish produce. A typical dish: roast halibut, Parmesan gnocchi, cauliflower, wild mushrooms, samphire, fish velouté. In the bedrooms, stone walls and rustic colours lend a soothing feel. ‘Our room was spacious and comfortable, and had plenty of hot water in the modern bathroom, and good Wi-Fi. With the windows open, we could hear the stream gurgling past during the night.’ The ‘very nice lounge’ has lots to entertain, from a log fire that invites curling up with a good book, to stacks of board games. Guests can also play ‘spot the red squirrel’ – they run along the woodland edge. Arriving on the sleeper train? A hearty breakfast awaits, with ‘a good choice’ of cooked dishes. (MB, GC, and others)
