A short trip from Glasgow and Edinburgh, this four star hotel has 49 bedrooms and 65 self-catering apartments decorated in a classic style within the 25 acre estate. Characterised by a quintessential touch of tartan, if you opt for one of the Feature Rooms there is also the option of a four-poster bed, and perhaps a private balcony as well. Meanwhile, apartments are perfect for family or group getaways with options of one, two and three bedrooms alongside a fully equipped kitchen, Nespresso machine, DVD player and satellite television, a balcony or terrace, and some even have their own sauna.

The Garden Restaurant offers a fine dining menu inspired by the Scottish Highlands, which is all the more fitting given its view across Loch Ard in the Trossachs. For a more relaxed setting there is also Rafters Bar and Bistro – a wood panelled environment serving lighter meals and afternoon snacks.
