Fonab Castle on the edge of Loch Faskally was built for a member of the Sandeman port-shipping family. The intimate fine dining restaurant offers diners a seven-course tasting menu of cutting-edge dishes, with appetisers and pre-desserts filling in the gaps between courses. So, you could find the menu offering langoustine raviolo with pumpkin velouté truffle pesto, perhaps followed by dry-aged duck, butternut squash and pickled elderberry spiced jus. Alphonso mango mousse with coconut ice cream and coconut gel is one of the well presented desserts. Unsurprisingly, considering the Sandeman connection, the wine list is noteworthy.
