This review is taken from the 2010 edition.
A French-influenced menu with emphasis on food sourcing from around Scotland. On offer are Loch Fyne scallops, Perthshire venison, Stornoway black pudding and even, from the bar, Hendricks gin from Ayrshire.
This 18th-century former drover’s inn sits a few miles off the A9 at the Gleneagles/Auchterader junction in peaceful Glendevon. During their recent refurbishment owners David and Lesley Morvy kept the 11-room hotel true to its roots with oak beams and roaring fireplaces still intact. The menu features what you might expect in a traditional, cosy, country inn with crowd-pleasing favourites such as steak and Guinness pie, fish and chips and chicken stuffed with haggis. Alongside these are more contemporary pan-seared scallops, crispy pork belly and cod loin with Parma ham. Don't be surprised to smell the sweet hardwood scent of the chefs gently smoking their own range of meat and game – the latter, mainly venison, quail, partridge and pheasant, being sourced from Gleneagles Estate four miles away.
The Tormaukin is an 18th-century country inn situated in the village of Glendevon near Gleneagles in Perthshire. With its beamed rooms, open fires and wooden floors, it's a retreat from the hustle and bustle of urban living, where you can be sure of the warmest welcome and the most delicious locally sourced food - with succulent Highland beef and wild boar likely to be among the culinary highlights of your stay. The Tormaukin is the perfect choice if you need to get away from it all. It's hard to imagine a more perfect retreat nestling in the peaceful Perthshire countryside. Yet, it's only an hour from Glasgow and Edinburgh and close to both Stirling and Perth. The hotel is the perfect base from which to explore all that this beautiful area of Scotland has to offer, from historic buildings such as Scone Palace to some of the finest golf courses in the country, as well as one of Scotland's oldest distilleries, Tullibardine in Blackford. The area also boasts some excellent fly fishing and walking opportunities.£10 charge for pets per night.
