The Stirling Highland Hotel

Spittal Street, STIRLING, FK8 1DU

1 rosettes

A grand old Victorian property just down the hill from Stirling's historic castle, The Stirling Highland Hotel was built in the 1850s as a school and there are references to the building's former life throughout - take a pre-dinner sharpener in the Headmaster's Study, before moving into Scholar's Restaurant. The eating takes place in three third-floor dining rooms of generous Victorian proportions, with vaulted ceilings, large windows and smartly laid out tables. The menu takes a modern approach to some familiar ideas, so a first-course smoked haddock kedgeree is breaded and deep-fried, and served with curried mayonnaise and a quail's egg, and guinea fowl arrives in a main course filled with prune mousse and partnered with a fondant potato, Savoy cabbage and butternut squash purée. There's a similarly contemporary approach to desserts, as when rhubarb gets the trio treatment - crumble, fool and sorbet.
