Close to Linlithgow Palace, this cluster of buildings dates from the 16th century and the candlelit restaurant occupies a former flour mill complete with bare stone walls and vaulted roof. Open for more than 30 years, the Champany Inn is less than a mile from the M9 and a the destination of choice for fans of properly-hung, expertly-butchered slabs of top-quality meat, much of it from herds of prime Aberdeenshire cattle. A starter of hot-smoked salmon from the Champany smokepot will invariably precede your favourite cut of beef - T-bone, porterhouse, rib-eye, Chateaubriand and all points in between - cooked to your liking on the charcoal grill.
