This 250-year-old crenellated hotel has an "authentic feel," with guest rooms decorated in period colors overlooking the Owenmore River and "fly fishermen casting their lines." Along with "breathtaking views of the river," Owenmore Restaurant serves up fish that were swimming that morning, while the pub records anglers' catches in ledgers dating to 1920. "The staff, housekeeping, and restaurant personnel were so experienced."
