This hotel is a celebration of Scottish culture: we’re talking literature and traditional music, not tartan and Nessie dolls. Rooms go for character over modernity; instead of a TV they come with a selection of books chosen by Scottish literati, eclectic artwork and cosy touches. The sumptuous lounge has sofas, chaises longues and an honesty bar. There's a bookshop here too.

It's one of the Highlands' more unusual and delightful places to stay.
