Stay at a charming Georgian hotel with whisky bar in the Scottish Highlands, near Thurso - with full Scottish breakfast, optional three-course dinner, and late check-out
- Built in 1810, Forss House, the former family home of adventurer, hunter, and renowned falconer Major Radclyffe comes with eager-to-please staff, an excellent malt whisky bar - with 250 types - and an attractive conservatory, nestled in a glorious setting: 20 acres of woodland on a loop of the River Forss.
- The pièce de résistance is the restaurant, a superb two AA Rosette dining space that showcases fresh, seasonal, locally-sourced and exceptional cuisine - much of which has been given a unique Highlands twist. Expect delicious starters (smoked haddock chowder, ravioli of Scrabster lobster) followed by mains, such as organic Shetland salmon, and twice-cooked blue cheese soufflé.
- There are just 14 characterful guest rooms, located either in the main house or in the River House in the gardens. The Master room has a comfortable double bed dressed with crisp white linens, country-chic soft furnishings, and rich drapes.
- Malt whisky bar
- Two AA restaurant
- Bath amenities
