The Scottish Hotel Awards are held annually in spring, and in 2017 it will be the 14th time Scotland's "flagship hotel awards" - to quote the First Minister Alex Salmond - will have been presented. To encourage, recognise and reward excellence in Scottish hospitality is our aim and, indeed, our motto. The shortlist of regional finalists is released each year in late march, in advance of the national final itself; the famed Awards Night often dubbed the 'Scottish hotel Oscars'.
This gorgeous manor hotel, set in parkland and flanked by immaculate lawns, is renowned as many-times winner of Scottish Wedding Hotel of the Year. And justly so. But there's much more to the exceptionally well-managed, sociable place: The Orangery destination restaurant is beautiful.
