My special birthday launch for 14 friends and family - including a young baby - had been planned with military precision for months. I have to confess that it was just a bit worrying to turn up and find that there was no power to cook lunch! But I am so glad that we waited to see if it would be back on when the power company suggested it might. The wait was certainly worth it and we were royally entertained by Duncan the piper (what a great surprise from my sister and friends), and by manager James and Chris with the sabrage opening of the champagne. With the excitement I hadn't really taken in what was involved until my friend (the champagne afficionado!) explained and I thought great, would love to see it. Lets have another bottle.....or two! Then the procession through the hotel, and lunch itself which was superb and well worth the wait. Everyone really enjoyed the food. My thanks to Head Chef David Maskell, the team in the kitchen and waiting staff. A thoroughly enjoyable day and a birthday to remember. As I explained to Chris I chose Ardeonaig as my two walking friends and I had staggered in from the boggy hill on the other side of the road on our way to Kenmore a few years ago. We thought then - civilisation! We had some refreshments and thought we must come back. And so we have but without the walking boots. James were the manager then, and though the hotel has changed hands since then the standards are just as high.
I can't recommend it enough.
