Scottish Dining Recommendations


Fantastic restaurant that offers some of the most amazing local produce in Aberdeenshire, Craig “The Kilted Chef” and his team show case some amazing food creations from our local area from the beef and wild game from the farm lands and the fruits of what the North Sea has to offer.  A true fine dinning experience and something that if this is your style of food then it has to be on the menu when your due to visit us here in Aberdeenshire.  We absolutely advise booking well in advance as they are usually booked up weeks if not months in advance.


Another great restaurant serving contemporary Scottish local food in a nice relaxed and informal atmosphere, again showcasing what amazing food we have here in Aberdeenshire and another must go if your coming to visit us here in Scotland. Equally as busy and booking in advance is a great idea but usually its possible to book tables when you arrive for your trip in Aberdeen.

silver darling

One of the longest standing North East top Sea food restaurants, being situated at the Aberdeen harbour’s edge they are in the perfect setting for delivering some of the finest seafood that Scotland has to offer and again this is another recommendation for any seafood lovers out there.  They cater well for bookings and as such it would be possible to book during your time here in Aberdeenshire but booking in advance wouldn’t hurt for any dates during weekends.

This happens to be our preferred hotels were many of our clients stay but also happens to be a fantastic bar and restaurant serving fresh local produce in a cosy relaxed atmosphere.  There is a lovely beer garden outside and during the summer months is a big favourite for dinning outside on warm summer evenings.  On those colder nights they’ve often got the fire lit in their bar and some warming meals cooking in the kitchen.  A lovely family run business with great service and looked after but a wonderful team.

smoke and soul

If your venturing into Aberdeen for a little adventure of the nightlife we recommend you go see our friends at Smoke and Soul for some of the finest wood smoked comfort food around, some amazing options for any appetite and we cant recommend these guys enough for offering something a little different yet using some great local produce.

Our Local steak house which just happens to be placed on sight of the farmers main market offers some of the finest cuts of beef, lamb and pork from the Aberdeenshire area.  Another really relaxed atmosphere and extremely local to the our accommodation providers.  They are really good with bookings and happy to accommodate for anyone booking during your time here in Scotland.
