Regional Highland dining in pastoral tranquillity

A converted 19th-century tweed mill standing in four acres of riverside grounds in the Cairngorms National Park, The Cross is a country restaurant with roomsl on the human scale, with eight brightly designed bedrooms and a beamed restaurant where a mood of informal tranquility reigns. The cooking is modern, ingredients-led and matches the pastoral surroundings with locally reared meats a speciality – witness lamb served two ways, roast loin, and cannelloni of the shoulder, together with artichoke, broccoli purée and glazed shallots in jus gras, or roast quail breast with leg meat bonbons, parsnip purée, apple and richly truffled jus. Elsewhere, seared John Dory is nicely matched with roast langoustine, confit sun-blushed tomato, onion purée and shellfish foam, while dessert is a dark chocolate shell filled with an irresistible cinnamon brulée mousse. A six-course taster picks out some of the main menu's highlights, while the three-course lunch deal, with three choices at each stage, delivers stonking value.
