Review on Cally Palace Hotel

Dating back to 1763, this opulent Scottish mansion was built by the owner of the Cally Estate as his country retreat. These days it stands in 150 acres of grounds complete with a lake and a golf course, and oozes grandeur.

Two huge marble pillars frame the entrance hall, which leads into the Bow Lounge with its magnificent gilt cupola ceiling. A pianist plays in the elegant dining room during the evening and the food matches the poshness of the surroundings.

A mosaic of venison, rabbit and pigeon set in a chicken liver and hazelnut mousse is a typically elaborate starter. Next comes a soup (perhaps tomato with chorizo, haricot and roast garlic) or a sorbet, before main courses ranging from steamed monkfish with sweet parsnip, spinach, saffron and vanilla sauce or seared tournedos of beef with creamed root vegetables and Marsala sauce. To close, there are desserts such as warm pear tart with Poire William ice cream or blood orange brûlée with pistachio biscuits.
