Corrour Station House Restaurant
Ollie and Lizzie are a young couple who were living and working in the hospitality industry in Edinburgh and decided to leave the bright lights behind and move out to the Scottish wilderness with a dream of opening a 'restaurant with rooms' with a difference!
Since August 2012, Ollie Bennett and Lizzie MacKenzie have been opening the doors of their quaint little home in the middle of wild Rannoch Moor to provide an oasis of warmth and hospitality in the iconic location of The Corrour Estate.
Corrour Station House Restaurant is officially the UK's most remote restaurant. It is situated in the midst of a 57,000 acre Highland estate and, with 17 miles laying between it and the nearest public road, is only accessible by foot or by train on the West Highland Line.
Previously operated as a bunk house and youth hostel, Ollie and Lizzie undertook the serious task of renovating their new home into an eclectic and comfortable guest house with a small restaurant attached. The aim is to offer bespoke accommodation to those wishing to explore the surroundings whilst showcasing the best of ingredients from the Scottish larder and ultimately bringing a new lease of life to Corrour.
Chef Ollie honed his culinary skills in Browns restaurant in Edinburgh’s fashionable George Street district. Lizzie, a native of the Isle of Seil near Oban, has worked in many west coast and Edinburgh restaurants alongside a rural 'agriturismo' in Tuscany. This experience has given both a comprehensive take on the skill of creating and serving first-class food and dishing up memorable hospitality.
