The dining experience
David’s love of locally-sourced and fresh produce means that menus are bespoke. We are happy to cater to any cultural preferences and religious faiths, and we warmly welcome your instructions and wishes.
Of course we make sure that foods you may be allergic to, or simply don’t like, won’t appear on your menu. Conversely we would love to know of your favourite dishes or special requests – birthday cakes, braking-of-fast feasts or traditional yuletide fare.
Of course, our signature dishes are based around venison, direct from the Estate larder. Our wild deer graze on the moors across the Corrour, and the meat is tender, lean and low in fat and cholesterol. In terms of ‘food-miles’, this is about as good as it gets!
Beef comes from Speyside butcher and farmer Macbeth’s, one of the few butchers to rear their own Scottish beef using traditional native breeds. Their herd is made up of Highland, Shorthorn and Aberdeen Angus beef cattle, that are largely reared outdoors and are completely grass fed. David has worked with Macbeth’s for over 18 years, and enjoys a unique relationship with their master butchers.
Higginsons of Grange over Sands provide our pork and lamb. A small butchery established for over 30 years, seasonal specialities can include Morecambe Bay saltmarsh lamb, Cumberland sausage and Lakeland Herdwick lamb.
Poultry and duck come from Johnson and Swarbrick of Goosnargh and are of the finest quality, corn-fed, direct from the farm.
Shellfish are purchased direct from boats landing at a number of Scotland’s west coast ports, whilst white fish is sourced from merchants in Scrabster.
We then use a number of local Scottish artisan suppliers of things such as cheeses, charcuterie, dairy produce, vegetables, jams, pickles and such like. We even have a team of enthusiastic mushroom foragers on the estate, who provide seasonal chanterelle and ceps.
Our wine list is selected from a range of organic and biodynamic vineyards, and focusses on wines that are made with passion, integrity and uniqueness of origin, while remaining true to environmental and ethical issues. Craft beers compliment this approach.
Finally, we have the unique ‘Corrour Collection’ of single malt and blended Scotch whisky.
