With 350 acres of ground to explore, this baronial style mansion, dating back to the late 19th century, exudes Victorian era affluence and affinity with the great outdoors. Oak panelled walls, immense fireplaces and quietude only disturbed by the occasional heron's call make this a place where your schedule should consist of nothing other than sleeping, eating and possibly a spot of fishing on the loch or a pre-lunch game of croquet on the front lawn. The spa suites are surprisingly modern looking with outdoor hot tubs in the private gardens and bathrooms stuffed to the gills with Molten Brown toiletries. The restaurant gained its first Michelin star in 2014 and serves up delicate takes on sturdy local classics such as guinea fowl and halibut. If P.G. Wodehouse ever moved north of the border, he couldn’t have felt more at home than here.
