My tour of Great Britain: one night in a Highland Hotel

On our final night in Scotland we moved from out holiday park in Nairn to The Knockendarroch - a beautiful highland hotel perched on the edge of a valley overlooking the surrounding hills in Pitlochry in the south of the CairnGorms.

We stayed in the top of the hotel in two rooms with balconies which afforded a brilliant view of the sunrise moving along the valley and gradually lighting up the green below.

In the morning I sat in the lounge, which is all highland charm, but none of the stuffiness. It features 'authentic colours and design from Farrow & Ball, Zoffany, and Yves Saint Laurent' - as The Knockendarroch website boasts and with good reason, it is beautiful. If I somehow were to meet a Laird and find myself with a castle to do up, this is how I would do it.

Added to the wonderfully coloured interior my coffee came in a cafetiere. Perfection.
