The Taynault Hotel is in the midst of a journey and they have made an excellent start . Their entrepreneurship deserves to be rewarded . The food is fantastic - and going with it is a great offering of wine , gin , whiskey etc . All presented and explained by engaging staff.

What a great place to be. The host David did a great job with serving and introducing the wonderful food. We were a small group of 11 and got the full treatment. The wine, presented by Eva Franceschi from Inverarity Morton was just great. Once again I really liked the great ambiance in this wonderful place.

Bought an overnight stay with dinner. The food was utterly fantastic. We had heard the food was good - it has 2 AA Rosettes. It was fantastic. On a par with much more expensive restaurants in Scotland. Really was a hidden gem.
