Ackergill Tower is perched on the very tip of the mainland, just a stone’s throw from John o’Groats. At the award-winning restaurant, head chef Paul Wenbourne sources meat, game and seafood from the estates, rivers and coastline of the Highlands, while the garden courtyard provides him with fresh herbs and leaves. At dinner, the rather grand-sounding Tower Dining Experience is in fact a relaxed, informal evening, which kicks off with a canapé reception and follows up with four courses showcasing local seasonal produce, with a different menu every day. The hotel has also built up a strong reputation for its afternoon tea, available one Sunday a month and bookable in advance.
