Doune­side House ex­cels at the re­gional Scot­tish Ho­tel Awards

The Oban Times - - LEISURE -

Of­fer­ing High­land hos­pi­tal­ity in a his­toric set­ting: Doune­side House, in Royal Dee­side, Aberdeen­shire.

Doune­side House, which is owned and man­aged by The MacRobert Trust, is based within the Trust’s 7,500 acre es­tate, and was the orig­i­nal home for the MacRobert fam­ily. It fea­tures 17 acres of mag­nif­i­cent gar­dens (and is a Royal Hor­ti­cul­tural So­ci­ety part­ner gar­den) and of­fers spec­tac­u­lar views over the Howe O’ Cro­mar to the Grampian Moun­tains from its front door.

Each of the 13 el­e­gantly fur­nished bed­rooms, as well as a range of cot­tages and apart­ments com­bines Scot­tish tra­di­tion with mod­ern ameni­ties. Guests can en­joy the state-of-the-art health club or get out­doors with a va­ri­ety of walk­ing trails, fish­ing and golf course nearby. Doune­side of­fers the re­gion’s only three rosette din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and their menu fea­tures culi­nary de­lights using the finest lo­cal in­gre­di­ents, in­clud­ing fresh pro­duce from their own gar­dens.

Doune­side House won ‘Coun­try House Ho­tel’, ‘Fam­ily Ho­tel’, ‘Fine Din­ing Ho­tel’, ‘Bou­tique Ho­tel’ and ‘Small Coun­try Ho­tel’. The Doune­side team also picked up sev­eral ‘Peo­ple Recog­ni­tion Awards’ in­clud­ing Carolanne Dun­can (House­keeper of the Year), David But­ters (Ho­tel Chef of the Year), Cameron Smith (Sous Chef of the Year) and Joseph Harte (Pas­try Chef of the Year).
