lebeha023n. The hotel is now called the Kenmore Hotel as evidenced by this Google Earth capture from Jules. It's Breadalbane land she adds, hence the former name of the hotel. Also, the church looks "less pointy". The website "undiscovered scotland" says that the tower was heightened in 1869 topped off with pinnacles, removed in 1950. But this film was 1957! (RL)
