The Kailyard by Nick Nairn is well known for its sophisticated gourmet cuisine.
The well known chef is famous for his championing of Scottish ingredients and the menus at The Kailyard show Scotland’s larder at its best.
Exact dishes will change depending on what is in season but typical choices might include starters such as the smoked Loch Duart Scottish salmon ‘Nick Nairn’ which is served with an apple and watercress salad plus brown bread.
Popular main courses include the slow braised shoulder of lamb with olive crushed potatoes, minted peas, tomato and basil gravy or the pan-fried fillet of Peterhead coley with pancetta, sauté potatoes, creamed leeks and sauce vierge.
There will be a supplement for some dishes.
The Doubletree by Hilton Dunblane Hydro has been welcoming guests since Victorian times. This is what a couple of more recent visitors had to say. We have edited for length but not meaning:
‘The food was out of this world… Staff were excellent, nothing too much trouble. Would I go there again? You bet I would any time even though coming home was a disappointment after all that luxury.’
‘Awesome. My husband and I ate here as part of our anniversary celebrations. Dinner was beautiful, the smoked duck starter in particular. My husband and I both had three courses and as a result we were totally stuffed, but it was well worth it and good value for money. We would highly recommend it.’
