As it happens I wasn't just reserving any old place, I had stumbled...

Fantastic little hotel really enjoyed my stay here. It has amazing views around it. Nice rooms. The bar is great for a drink and the food is really good. The Gaelic whisky is nice to. It is an older hotel so please don't expect anything modern not that this is a bad thing.
