This large Georgian-style house, in a residential neighborhood a 5-minute walk west of the town center, was built late in the 19th century and boasts distinctive architectural features like a sweeping oak staircase, elaborate moldings, and marble mantelpieces. The largest guest rooms, with the loftiest ceilings, are one floor above street level; slightly less grand rooms are two floors above street level. Each is uniquely decorated in traditional Scottish style. Some of the bathrooms contain a shower only.
The restaurant here is recommended; it's open for dinner Monday through Saturday. Look for moderate prices and home-style cooking from a talented team, with dishes like chicken suprême filled with smoked salmon; lamb, marinated in rosemary and garlic, roasted with red currant sauce; and scallops, prawns, and cod in a phyllo basket with white-wine sauce. Prices range from £9.50 to £18 ($18-$34).
