Lonely Planet review
Built in the 1890s as a hospital, this sumptuously restored complex – still owned by the Church of Scotland – is graced by landscaped gardens, breezy courtyards and a dazzling lake-view pool (open April to November). Has 69 rooms and a spa with Turkish hammam, hot tub and massage. Discounts are often available.
Nonguests can visit the gorgeous, tranquil gardens from about 10am to 4pm on Sunday to Wednesday.
