Year 1 I stayed at a hotel about 10 mins drive away. Looked great but I forgot to tea the reviews. Typical Scottish Manor house to check in and then you stayed in a plywood extension at the back. And it was grubby. And the breakfast was crap and microwaved to death.
Year 2 we stayed at the Isles of Glencoe. And I swear I had one of the best two meals of my life there. The days exertion might influence this. It's good not to have to travel.
