Forss House Hotel

Forss, THURSO, KW14 7XY

2 rosettes

You can't get much further away from urban bustle in the mainland British Isles than the northern Highlands, where this Georgian country-house hotel luxuriates in splendid tranquillity below a waterfall on the River Forss, amid 20 acres of woodland. Plenty of pedigree Highland produce is on parade, naturally, starting with Tain cheddar and leek tart, its richness offset with lemon vinaigrette, while main course sees loin of Caithness lamb teamed with crispy tongue, artichoke and fondant potato, or perhaps roasted Scrabster monkfish with curried pumpkin and Puy lentils. Finish up with an intensely lemony trio, comprising drizzle cake, iced parfait and a meringue.
