Review on Dornoch Castle Hotel
Dornoch Castle Hotel hit the headlines in 2000 when Madonna got married here, and it's also renowned as a wedding venue for those with a lower public profile. It occupies the shell of an historic Tudor castle (complete with an original stone tower), and stands directly opposite Dornoch's twelfth-century cathedral.
The purpose-built Garden Restaurant overlooks the beautifully nurtured walled garden, and it is done out in a mix of Scottish baronial and contemporary style. Menus bring together Scottish and European themes, witness starters of carpaccio of salmon and scallops or confit duck and chestnut ravioli drizzled with warm plum sauce. Mains take up the baton, with anything from braised oxtail with parsnip and vanilla purée to seared fillet of hake with cherry tomato and coriander relish. To finish, try sticky toffee pudding or honey and whisky crème brûlée.
