Short stay while visiting Edinburgh

Staff were very helpful and cheery! Food was delicious! Even though not right in Edinburgh it was very easy to catch a direct bus in and out as car parking in Edinburgh is very expensive! Great Experience!

Everything was more than satisfactory bar the dinner, which I'm sad to say was very disappointing. A three course meal will set you back almost £30, which is absolutely fine if the food was of quality produce. Tough meat, bland flavours and over cooked veggies. I would recommend staying at the beautiful estate but I would avoid eating at the restaurant (which unfortunately is difficult as it's the only restaurant for miles around)
