Located in lush gardens with a backdrop of Ben Cruachan rising from the waters of Loch Awe, the hotel's interior is traditional with a contemporary spin and a touch of Gothic charm. The restaurant - candlelit in the evening - is a stylish space with striking artworks and tables dressed in pristine white-linen cloths. The kitchen turns out modern dishes such as fillet of wild sea bass with textures of apple and celeriac remoulade, followed by slow-cooked Angus beef partnered with braised oxtail and a piece of seared foie gras. Finish with a deconstructed version of banoffee pie, or hot chocolate fondant with pistachio ice cream.
