Review on Culdearn House

Intimacy is a virtue at this personally run, Victorian villa in the heart of Speyside. Built of locally quarried granite, it puts on a sturdy face, and inside it looks the part with original wood panelling, fine moulded ceilings and marble fireplaces.

The dining room only seats 16, so guests get full attention when they arrive for a candlelit dinner. Scottish produce is the backbone of the daily-changing menu, which runs to four courses including a soup or sorbet. Typically you might open with West Coast scallops on a 'trellis' of asparagus, while main courses could range from loin of Highland venison with bramble and bitter chocolate gravy or fillet of sea bream with peppers and courgettes to Culdearn steak (a fixture). Finish with rhubarb, ginger and almond crumble or Drambuie ice cream. Malt whisky tastings are a feature, and Culdearn House also has a decent list of handpicked wines from around the globe.
