Good Hotel Guide Review
At every turn, contemporary artwork, artefacts, taxidermy specimens and striking features catch the eye in this imposing 19th-century coaching inn. Now more country lodge than pub, it has been lavishly revitalised by gallery owners Iwan and Manuela Wirth. Paintings by many Scottish artists are among the 14,000 works on display. A Picasso hangs in the tartan-walled drawing room, below Chinese artist Zhang Enli’s remarkable hand-painted ceiling; Louise Bourgeois’s huge spider sculpture lurks in the courtyard. Richly furnished suites and bedrooms pay homage to a place, person or event with links to the area; Croft rooms are cosy and simple with box beds. Wood-fired cooking is showcased in the dining room; hearty dishes in the Flying Stag bar.
