          Amazing little hotel full of character and surrounded by breathtaking scenery. We only stayed one night but wish we had stayed longer to really make the most of the tranquil beauty. Really beautiful spot. Hosts were friendly and informative and happy to help.

          Thank you. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at the castle. We are lucky to be situated in such a beautiful part of Scotland. We feel guests sometimes miss out if they only stay one night. Perhaps another you might consider a longer stay.

          I am trying to verify a reservation I made through your website for the night of April 13th for one night. I reserved Breadalbane room under the name of LaFramboise? I tried calling the number from your website at +44 (0)1631 720598 listed at the below website: The number says it is no longer working? Is there a new number to contact you at? Is it possible to confirm the reservation?
