Good Hotel Guide Review
In a village on the Great Glen Way, hikers and cyclists stop for the simple comforts of this 160-year-old coaching inn. Visitors mingle with locals in the bar, over Scottish whiskies and gins, hand-pulled ciders and locally brewed real ales; in the slate-floored restaurant, ingredients for classic pub dishes are drawn from nearby waters, farms and estates. Throughout, nature paintings by a local artist add interest. Accommodation is in fuss-free bedrooms made homely with wool throws and tweedy cushions, tea and coffee, Scottish toiletries; budget-friendly bunkhouse rooms overlooking the River Coiltie suit groups or a family. Hearty breakfast choices include porridge, smoked haddock and a ‘full Highland’.
