Shoes off, feet up, be entertained

The gallery – situated above the laich hall – is housed in the old byre extension to the main tower building. Thought to be almost as old as the tower itself, it is where the trappings of modern living can be found, ensuring everyone’s entertained, no matter the weather.

With digital TV, wi-fi and comfortable furniture to laze around on, kicking back to watch a late night film after a day in the great outdoors is a great way to unwind. There is also a hot desk, with laptop, for anyone needing to succumb to the necessities of modern day life.

The gallery also houses a small bar for the mixologists among guests to shake up a fine martini or pour a warming dram.
