The hotel was easy to find on the main road through Dinnet and there was parking round the back. The hotel was clean some in the process of being done up but there was signs...

We have enjoyed wonderful accommodations during a two week trip throughout Scotland with one gaping exception- the Loch Kinord Hotel. This hotel - at least our room - was well past its prime. Although some of the hotel has been remodeled, our room was completely neglected. Peeling wallpaper, poor lighting, tired decor, and THE ABSOLUTE WORST mattress and pillows in...
