After a bit of a grueling run through Europe for work, I spent a night at Ballathie House on the way to visit some old friends. This is a very special place. Decor in this spectacular old home is comfortable, plush and homey. Staff are very warm and friendly and service was impeccable. Chef Scott Scorer does a great job of preparing local ingredients from the rich farm country and surrounding area into fabulous creative dishes. An easy drive to or from Edinburgh airport and just off the motorway if you're heading North or hitting the whiskey trail. Serves lunch and tea if you cant stop for the night. Bonus: fishing rights in the Tay River, great walking and scenery. Sorry I didn't meet the resident Labrador Retriever. Didn't experience any of the (relatively minor ) problems raised in earlier reviews.
