Mountain biking's a great option at the Nevis range.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

This hotel has the feel of tradition with a subtle modern twist. There's a real feel of a traditional country house, and although portraits of Great Scots at the entrance labour the Scottish angle slightly, on the whole, the balance is just right.

THE FACILITIES

The staff here are all very friendly and helpful, and the service is very efficient - almost too efficient! The spa offers an impressive range of treatments, including Abhyanga Indian, Balinese, Swedish, hot stone and deep tissue massages.
