Good Hotel Guide Review
Watch for roaming deer as you follow the ‘long, attractive drive’ to the Milligan family’s Victorian country house on the banks of the River Tay. It’s a sporting place with beats for anglers, clay-pigeon shoots, lovely walks, and golf nearby. Inside the grand old house – built in the 1880s for an army general – paintings hang in gilt frames; trophy cases display the salmon that didn’t get away. A staircase sweeps up from a hall with a log fire; there’s a wood-panelled bar packed with malt whiskies, and everywhere ‘plenty of space to sit’. Bedrooms in the main house have period features and traditional furnishings; those in a riverside building reached via a lit pathway through the garden have their own patio or balcony. Cheaper rooms in the Sportsman’s Lodge in the grounds – ideal for muddy-booted walking and fishing parties – are ‘plainly furnished but large and warm’. Casual lunches (club sandwiches, Caesar salads) may be taken in the bar; in the dining room, chef Scott Scorer gives a modern twist to the classics, using local beef and venison (‘the best we’ve ever tasted’), and trout and salmon fresh from the river. ‘Each dish is a work of art.’ (RW, and others)
