Review on Ardhasaig House

Wonderful views of the shoreline and the North Harris hills are one of the joys of visiting this secluded retreat in the Western Isles. The house itself dates from 1904 and many of its original features – including the purple tiled fireplace in the lounge – have been carefully preserved. No televisions disturb the peace: instead there are books and board games to while away the time.

Katie MacAskill is both manageress and chef, and she makes admirable use of local produce for a daily-changing, no-choice dinner menu. You might begin with roast butternut squash soup with herb scones before an intermediate course of – say – pan-fried Isle of Harris scallops with leek and vermouth cream. The centrepiece is generally something meaty – perhaps fillet of Amhuinnsuidhe venison accompanied by fig and redcurrant gravy and assorted vegetables – while dessert could be chocolate roulade with passion fruit and crème anglaise. Finish with tea or coffee and some sweet treats.
