In summer our guests also enjoy the outdoor dining area under the trees while their children romp in the large open air play area.Our menu features modern Scottish cuisine at its very best, using herbs from our own garden and quality, locally sourced seasonal produce. The exceptional food is complemented by an extensive wine list and large selection of whiskies and cognacs to complete the experience.
