Martin Wishart at Loch Lomond

Cameron House on Loch Lomond, BALLOCH, G83 8QZ

3 rosettes

Cameron House is a castellated mansion on the banks of Loch Lomond with a physical presence and setting that is hard to beat. Expect five-star treatment and everything from a chic spa and posh lodges tucked away in the peaceful countryside. In this refined setting only a serious dining option will do, and since 2009 that's been the responsibility of Martin Wishart. Having made his Edinburgh restaurant into one of the top addresses in the UK, the move out here (where he previously worked) has resulted in another venue worthy of his reputation. Martin is not at the stoves - that's down to Graeme Cheevers - but the refined modern French cuisine on offer is redolent of the Wishart style. It all takes place in a handsome and rather contemporary dining room which looks rather dashing compared against today's favoured neutrality (think lime green banquettes and Regency stripes). There's a short ? la carte, but the main attraction is the tasting menu, which comes in two sizes (six- or eight-course). From the six-course menu, you might start with miso-glazed Shetland salmon with toasted buckwheat, cucumber and dashi, followed by the luxurious pairing of Loch Fyne crab and foie gras with pickled carrots and apple. Flavours are clear and true and there's precision in the execution. Later on, roasted veal sweetbread arrives with caramelised onion, and mousseline made with Yukon Gold potatoes and Comt? cheese. Among desserts, Valrhona dark chocolate finds its way into a souffl? (served with pistachio ice cream), while the selection of pasteurised and unpasteurised cheese is well worth checking out. The wine list covers regional France in detail without neglecting the rest of the world.
