SO MUCH TO SEE
A paradise for wildlife
The birdlife and animals roaming wild are a great attraction. Otters. Eagles. Stags. There’s even a common seal colony and breeding grounds right on our doorstep, in the loch below Newton Lodge. Watch them via the telescope from the conservatory. Or take a pair of our binoculars out with you and wait and see what happens. We would love to know what you have spotted.
AN ANCIENT LANDSCAPE

Yes! Great news, all our rooms are dog friendly (a maximum of two per room) – only well behaved and house trained please! (Additional charges apply.) We request that you do not leave your four-legged friends in your room if you are out except at breakfast time, as we cannot allow pets in the dining room.
