HOCKING HILLS, OHIO — If you’d like to find a wee bit of Scotland not too far from home, simply drive a little more than 2 hours north of Charleston (123.3 miles, to be precise) to Ohio’s Hocking Hills. There, you’ll find the Glenlaurel Inn and its savory flavor of the Scottish Highlands.

Pulling into the driveway near the reception area, I got my first glimpse of the inn’s signature architecture. Both the Manor House and nearby Carriage House sport stucco walls with rock and dark timber accents reminiscent of what you might find in Scotland. It was a cozy beginning to a Scottish-themed visit.
