The Hotel Bar has an old fashioned
quality. It is here that you can rub shoulders with a few of the locals or enjoy a light lunch. Perhaps have a night cap of a wee
dram or two.
And then, of course, there are the other sort of
spirits ... ... the Lodges' ethereal visions. Ghostly presences have been
seen and felt for many years.
It is not really surprising that a building with such a strong pervading
sense of history should also be home to a few harmless hauntings. All of the ghostly activities are centred on the ground floor of the Lodge.
A gentleman in black is often spotted at the entrance whilst a black-garbed, elderly grandmother can sometimes be glimpsed knitting by the fire.
With her is usually a spaniel.
A really active spot is the passage behind the bar where an elderly lady in night clothing appears. These "extra" guests never bother the " real" guests, so the owners are more than happy to give them house room.
|The Bar is generally open throughout
the year from 12:00 noon until 1:00 am. Please note that the exact
times may vary according to season and the bar may close
earlier over the quieter period.
