In lush countryside 60 miles north of Edinburgh, this handsome family-owned stone country house hotel built in 1840 stands amid a 25-acre woodland park. The 18 accommodations have splendid views and are individually decorated with patterned wallpaper, floral fabrics and authentic period furnishings. The more luxurious Junior Suites offer turreted sitting rooms, four-poster beds and fine views over the countryside. Inviting public areas include an oak-paneled main hall with a log fireplace and portrait gallery, a bar-lounge for rare malt whiskies, a conservatory, a library and a serene dining room serving carefully prepared and impeccably fresh cuisine from a daily-changing menu. Though the hotel lacks a swimming pool and a gym, a wide array of outdoor activities is offered, including salmon fishing, hiking, biking and seasonal shooting excursions.
Lowest Rate: Standard Room, $300; Editor’s Choice: Junior Suite, $410.
