Martin Wishart at Loch Lomond

Cameron House on Loch Lomond, BALLOCH, G83 8QZ

4 rosettes

These days, just about every name chef has a place in the city and somewhere in the countryside, and Edinburgh star Martin Wishart has a gorgeously sited venue on a bank of Loch Lomond, probably literally a stone's skim from the front door to the water's edge (though we haven't tested our skill). Naturally, views from the dining room are over the gently ruffled waters of the loch, and a little creative ruffling has been brought to the latest Ian Smith design job. Chairs are upholstered in tangy lime or Everton mint stripes of black and white, and an illuminated glass store divides the main space from the service doors. Graeme Cheevers brings his own productive energies to the Wishart style, which matches a strong commitment to natural produce with head-turning visual display. A marriage of heavenly foie gras mousse and quince purée on oloroso sherry jelly with brilliant brioche is all classical authority, or you might opt for something much more now, in the shape of bergamot-marinated sea-bream of surpassing freshness, with an array of bracing accompaniments - ponzu, radish, sea herbs and dill. A pair of conjoined fillets of lemon sole topped with parsnip brunoise is a bright main-course idea, the creamed Brussels sprouts and vermouth-laced velouté adding richness, while barbecued Angus onglet is a fine steak cut, its positive flavour deepened with a lightly set custard of bone marrow. Desserts to beat the band include chestnut parfait with Cox's apple mousse and featherlight cinnamon ice cream. Incidentals, from canapés to petits fours, show exemplary attention to detail.
