A Care Inspectorate document said it had “major strengths” but there were still some areas where the home could improve although these potential changes would not affect residents at the home.
The report said: “We evaluated the service as performing at a very good level. This means that the service demonstrates major strengths in supporting positive outcomes for people.
“There were very few areas for improvement and those that do exist would have a minimal impact on people’s experiences and outcomes.”
