CONSCIOUS CUISINE - FOOD AT ALLADALE

We believe in the nourishing power of eating seasonally and locally as much as possible, with nature and comfort at heart - something we like to call ‘conscious cuisine’. 
Organically prepared authentic menus for your stay at Alladale Lodge, Eagle’s Crag or Ghillie’s Rest. Think warming venison stews, seasonal seafood, local trout, healthy soups, organic vegetables and delicious desserts - food and meals that defines ‘conscious cuisine’.

FROM GARDEN TO
PLATE

Our aquaponic gardens are a 1.5-acre beacon of sustainability - with three large greenhouses and an extensive array of raised beds, we grow nutritious organic vegetables, herbs, berries and fruits. Power comes from our own hydro-turbine; creating a zero-waste and zero-emissions ethical food production scheme.

LOCAL PRODUCE

At Alladale, everything we do is rooted in supporting and nourishing the local environment. Our head chef is proud to source supplies locally - that means supporting local business, getting ingredients of the highest quality, and thinking with sustainability in mind.

FROM OUR HILLS, FRESH TO THE TABLE

In the absence of natural predators, Alladale’s wild red deer herd needs managing in order to help tree growth. This means we can prepare and serve delicious recipes from a constant supply of organic venison year round. We believe that wild, healthy game will play a huge role in our transition to a more environmentally conscious and nutritious diet.

FRUITS OF THE LAND

Alladale is a rich haven for foragers and those that like to ‘live off the land’. The lochs and rivers are teeming with mountain trout; old-growth forests where mushrooms burst from the soil; wild-growing berries and herbs to garnish our dishes with.

OUR CATERING OPTIONS

We always have your comfort and convenience at heart. When you are staying at Alladale Lodge, our head chef  prepares three meals a day, using an informal ‘family style’ servery. This allows guests to help themselves to what they want and also provides additional privacy. Full waiter service is available upon request.

If you’re staying at Eagle’s Crag or Ghillie’s Rest, the fridge and cupboards will be stocked beforehand with a wide range of breakfast items such as fresh smoothies, juices, fruits, tomatoes, mushrooms, yoghurt, cereals, oats, bread and eggs from our hens – all ready for you to cook as you wish in the fully equipped kitchen. Lunch and dinner are freshly prepared every day and delivered to your kitchen each afternoon, along with a written menu and full instructions. If you are heading out for the day, packed lunches are provided.


THE BADGER’S HIDE

Badger’s Hide is the perfect snug hideaway for a heartening meal out on the Reserve. After a cycle or a walk down Glen Mhor, lunches are available at the Badger’s Hide on request. Relax in front of a wood stove and enjoy the mesmerising wild beauty all around.

DRINKS

Soft and hot drinks are included as part of the catering, while wines and spirits are an additional cost when staying at Alladale Lodge. We have a selected list of wines for you to choose from, along with a range of spirits and other drinks which are locally sourced where possible. You are welcome to bring your own wine, however a corkage is charged.
