Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Talk about off the beaten track!’ Scott Meikle and Stephanie Graham’s ‘little jewel of a hotel’ stands at the end of the road, amid a vast moorland wilderness of lochs and lochans. Sixteen miles from the nearest settlement, it is beyond the reach of mobile phone and Wi-Fi signals. The result: a ‘relaxing, chilled-out atmosphere’ its fans swoon into. Arrive by sleeper train in time for a ‘hearty breakfast’ of free-range eggs or porridge with Drambuie and cream, then unpack in one of the ‘well-equipped’ bedrooms – they’re ‘just big enough, with a good bed’. Most attractive, perhaps, is the ‘captivating wild scenery’ seen from the bedroom window – look out for red deer and stags. At dinnertime, eat in (you can hardly do otherwise!) and enjoy the hostess’s daily-changing menus. Typical dishes: Aga-cooked ox cheek, neep and tattie gratin; pan-fried halibut, roast tomato sauce, lemon and herb couscous, griddled aubergine. ‘Dinner was good value, with generous portions.’ There are bikes to hire, and forest tracks for all abilities; so take it slow, order a packed lunch and simply start walking. (DS, JM)

Guest comments

'Superlative! The location speaks for itself, but the food needs to be given especial praise. Young Steph is very, very special in the kitchen. Everything here is delightfully 'low key' (except for the cuisine!). Lovely warm and well-appointed bedrooms. Not 'low key' is when the fabulous dogs appear to 'inspect' the guests! Wallace and Stanley are just the sort of 'comfort' canines, that dog lovers adore. Those that do not appreciate dogs need have no fear, Scott keeps the two on a very short leash!

'We has a very enjoyable few days) with good meals and a very friendly owner. My only criticism is that the duvet on the bed was very small and kept falling on the floor. ' - Paul and Jen Hofarth - August, 2017
'Refreshingly laid-back but professionally run. Good welcome. Despite the intimacy of the place we felt we had space to relax, and whilst conversation with the owners was easy they never "nosey". Bedroom good; just big enough; well equipped, bed good. Breakfasts hearty, freshly cooked and good; warm toast and decent tea. Dinner very good value; generous starters such as King scallops, and more on plate that in your average Michelin-starred restaurant. Presentation was okay, flavour combinations sensible. Great to have slow food done in an Aga. Desserts good and a cheese board left in the lounge for nibbles after dinner. Great range of malts. Wine list concise to the point of short but good value and quite sufficient. ' - Mark Slaney - July, 2015
