Top hotel awards

A Scottish hotel with no TV, no wi fi and “poor to non existent” mobile reception has been named “Newcomer of the Year” in the latest edition of the annual Good Hotel Guide. The Moor of Rannoch Hotel in Perth and Kinross, described as “blissfully isolated”, fills the gap with board games, books, and wood burning stoves.
