Darroch Learg Restaurant

Braemar Road, Ballater, Aberdeenshire, AB35 5UX
You can enjoy splendid views from this excellent hotel/restaurant, perched high above the village. Although the building is basically Victorian, the dining room is airy, and with a smart/modern feel, overlooking the well-kept gardens. Chef, David Mutter uses carefully-sourced local ingredients.

For starters, expect the likes of 'Fillet of Beef with Horseradish Risotto', 'Langoustine Tortellini' or 'Roasted Calf's Sweetbread'.

Perhaps 'Beef with Parsnip Purée and an Oxtail and Mushroom Sauce'; 'Roast Monkfish Fillet with Pommes PurÄ—e, Chorizo, Peas & Fried Sage' or seasonal game or wild salmon to follow.

There are excellent desserts - such as 'Warm Chocolate Brownie with Crème Fraîche' and 'Classic Lemon Tart with Berry Sauce' or excellent Scottish cheese to finish.
