Built for one Captain Arthur Drummond in the 1870s, when it was known with becoming modesty as Cromlix Cottage, then promptly rebuilt the same decade when it burned down, the turreted manor house is now owned by local boy Sir Andy Murray. Its public rooms are done in the height of country-house elegance, the dining room a glassed-in conservatory that looks over the sumptuous grounds. Named in honour of its executive presence, the much-garlanded Albert Roux, Darin Campbell's kitchen aims high, blending elements of French gastronomic classicism – the cheese-laden soufflé suissesse in its cream bath has been translated unscathed from its origins at Le Gavroche – with vivacious cooking in the modern global style. Home-cured Ardgay venison is given the bresaola treatment and served alongside salt-baked beetroot, quince purée and smoked ricotta, as a prelude to steamed Skrei cod with king prawn, Chinese vegetables and shiitakes in coconut broth, or powerfully rich braised Wagyu with snails and lardons in port. The culinary paths continue to diverge at dessert, between classic apple frangipane tart made with Braeburns, and chocolate and pistachio pavé with lychee sorbet.
