The Ben Lawers Hotel

Lawers[pronunciation?] is a village situated in rural Perthshire, Scotland. It lies on the banks of Loch Tay and at the foot of Ben Lawers.[1] It was once part of a vibrant farming industry in the area.

The Lady of Lawers lived most of her adult life there, and is buried in the old village ruins.
