Lovely local hotel for Banchory for overnight stays or just a meal out. Set back from the main road, ample parking and access.

We are sorry that you did not have an enjoyable lunch with us unlike many of our other reviews. We have found lunch times can be quiet some days however people have commented that it is nice to be able to have a good chat with their friends when it is less busy. More

Our first experience of dining at The Tor-an-collie. The service was great, the food was fantastic and the decor and ambience was great. There was four of us all together. We had starters and main courses, which left us no room for a desert. I had leg of lamb, my husband and friend had Lemon Sole, and the other person... More
