        Just a one night stay en route to the North Isles, but long enough to appreciate the compact but comfortable bedroom and delicious breakfast of local fish and eggs. The proprietor proved to be very knowledgeable on all things trout-related. Would certainly stay again.

        Nice enough people but this hotel is confused and felt unfortable. On top of that the room was tiny. Very questionable decoration - a dated mix of Scottish with heavy African feel. I don't mind heads of animals on the walls - but they have...More
