Scottish Highlands restaurants

The restaurant scene is improving, but you are still more likely to randomly stumble across the unholy trinity of the deep-freeze, fat fryer, and the microwave rather than a kitchen that makes intelligent use of fantastic local ingredients. All of the accommodation options in this guide offer meals that are several cuts above the norm. Boath House, Inverlochy Castle, Kinloch Lodge, Eriska, and Airds are among the best in the country. The restaurants below range from the rustic to the remarkable. You won't find white linen tablecloths in them all, but you will get good ingredients prepared with thought and care.
