Good Hotel Guide Review
‘The warmth of the welcome is striking’ at this ‘carefully refurbished’ 19th-century coaching inn with ‘superb views’ over Loch Tummel. Owned by Alice and Jade Calliva, it enters the Guide thanks to the urging of a regular reader, who stepped into the rustic, stone-built building to find hosts who ‘couldn’t have been friendlier’. A mini-library has deep velvet sofas and shelves of books; a residents’ lounge (‘with the fire lit – welcome even in August’) sees clear across the loch to Schiehallion. The scenery matches Craig Rushton’s ‘outstanding cooking’. Using produce from the kitchen garden, seasonal menus served in the smart, wood-floored bar might include pea and nettle soup; ‘tender local venison in a rich gravy’. Bed down in one of the ‘comfortable, well-appointed’ bedrooms (some up a ‘steep staircase’); decorated in a modern country style, each is supplied with peaty whisky and home-baked biscuits. Come morning, try to sit by the huge picture window for an ‘excellent breakfast’ of home-made jams, compotes and granola; porridge oats from a local farm shop; eggs from the inn’s own hens.
