Book a table

Food lovers (and some of the most talented chefs) from all over the world flock to Scotland for its food, and the stunning restaurant at Ackergill Tower is no exception. Whether you’re joining us for an intimate dinner or private function, we guarantee you a dining experience to remember. You may even be piped to your table in the Great Hall by our own Highland pipe band. Our talented chefs source seasonal ingredients from local farmers, fishermen and markets so that you will experience spectacular starters, marvellous mains and decadent desserts, washed down by a local single malt.  You can even experience the most Scottish of traditions first hand – the addressing of the haggis.

Why not go all out and celebrate a special occasion and let us make it memorable – birthdays, anniversaries, corporate functions, a catch up with old friends, or simply join us for Sunday lunch or a traditional highland afternoon tea, the choice, and the pleasure, are all yours.


Join us for a dining experience to remember, with award-winning service and spectacular Scottish cuisine, all in the magnificent surroundings of our Grade A listed castle hotel.
