Good Hotel Guide Review
‘As excellent as ever.’ Regular guests were ‘delighted to report’ this year that this ‘wonderful’ 1840s dower house at the gateway to the Highlands ‘remains unchanged’. ‘It’s still personally run by Henrietta Fergusson’, with great humour (a sign on the garden gate politely asks visitors to shut the gate to keep out rabbits, adding: ‘Notice to rabbits: Keep Out’). An ‘excellent team’, in tartan skirts and trews, provides ‘very able support’. The pleasant lounge has a warming winter fire, helped by an island-hopping whisky menu; on warm days, the ‘nicely tended’ rhododendron-filled garden is just the place for toothsome afternoon teas. The homely bedrooms come in all shapes and sizes (some are ‘rather snug’), but they are ‘clean and comfortable’. Each is ‘well furnished’, with antique pieces, fresh flowers, thick, tartan woollen blankets and a radio with integral phone charger. In the dining room, chef Mark Easton serves a daily-changing menu of ‘truly fine food, mixing the best of tradition and expert knowledge’, perhaps ‘best end’ of Perthshire lamb stuffed with red onion mousse; shallot and petit pois tortellini.
