Restaurants in Scotland


With such a glorious array of fresh produce available it is no surprise that Scotland is home to some of the UK's finest restaurants. Scottish seafood, abundant in the country’s coastlines, rivers and lochs, is famed the world over for its quality, while the variety of game available during the hunting seasons is also superb.

This collection contains some of the finest Michelin star restaurants in Scotland, run by chefs who more than make the most of the produce their country has to offer. In the east The Peat Inn provides exquisite food and warm hospitality to both locals and visitors to nearby St Andrews alike, while The Kitchin offers Michelin star dining in Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital. Restaurant Martin Wishart is another string to Edinburgh’s culinary bow, while the eponymous chef has also ventured west, with Martin Wishart at Loch Lomond boasting both quality menus and incredible views.

Indeed, incredible views - and incredible food - are not hard to come by in a country with such dramatic landscapes. Further up towards the Highlands is Inverlochy Castle, a haven of fine dining sandwiched between the mountains and glens, while Kinloch Lodge on the Isle of Skye delivers unique menus against a glorious island vista.

Tom Kitchin’s ‘From Nature to Plate’ ethos runs right through the heart of The Kitchin restaurant. Ingredients are meticulously sourced; there are views of Edinburgh’s waterfront; and the cooking is polished but undeniably earthy.
