"...but while crisply modern, this place isn't about minimalism. Rather than empty the contents of design magazines into Monachyle Mhor, Melanie, Tom and Fiona cherrypick great contemporary pieces and introduce them to classic design, then add a smattering of rusticity. The result is a balanced melange that extends guests' jaws to the floor."

"Monachyle Mhor could provide a blueprint for hotels anywhere in the Scottish countryside. For it runs rings around most of the competition.... the interiors of this traditional pink-harled building (and adjoining stone steading) are splendid: an engaging exercise in contemporary rustic chic."

"Chic and contemporary, and a model of ethical food production, Monachyle Mhor lies on a road to nowhere, four miles down the ribbon of tarmac that brings you to the western tip of Loch Voil and no further. It was a family farm, and still thrives as such, only now with a restaurant and boutique hotel taking up the old stables and part of the farmhouse."
