Visit Fife's only farmhouse cheesemakers. The glass wall allows you to watch the action and Jane's unpasteurised cheeses from their own herd of cows are a delicious asset to this lovely region. Her well stocked cheese counter is the perfect place to buy her excellent hand crafted award-winning cheeses including Anster, Red Anster with Chives and St Andrews Farmhouse Cheddar. Tarry a while at their beautiful coffee shop with home baking par excellence! The wonderful home mades soups are served with her absolutely delicious freshly baked cheese scones. The elevated views from the cafe are over open countryside and the sea beyond making it a delightful place to visit. There is also a great range of cheese related foodie gifts in the shop.

Congratulations to Ballathie for winning Best CHEESEBOARD in Scotland and the UK Award at the British Cheese Awards. (October 2013). Ballathie’s General Manager says: “It’s the latest example of the great culinary strides we’re achieving at Ballathie to make it a major dining destination. Cheese is part of Britain’s food heritage and an important part of a meal.” I couldnt agree more! Turreted fairytale architecture with fine food and wonderful relaxing ambience is signature to this gracious hideaway by Perth. Guests at Ballathie are usually lucky enough to see some of the many red squirrels that live here on the estate. With its glorious riverside location a stay here is pure magic.

Since taking over the restaurant “Let’s Eat” in October 2005, “Deans @ Let’s Eat” has become a real favourite and an institution in Perth. Its warm atmosphere along with Traditional Scottish food cooked in an exciting “Modern way” explains it all and it is quite the family enterprise now as their sons are part of the team. Delightful meal options and seasonal events. Click on their website for further details and to reserve your table. There are also incredibly good value lunch options to enjoy when shopping in Perth, still with a beautiful attention to detail and absolutely delicious. We had scrumptious crispy battered sole with hand cut chips, excellent seafood stew and melt-in-mouth fudge pavlova.

This attractive family run country lodge on outskirts of town has been extensively and lovingly refurbished and is absolutely beautiful. Chef patron Neil McGowan and his family are justly proud of its status as Fishing Hotel of the Year, a pastime close to his heart. Indeed any guests can be assured their catch will be skillfully conjured into their dinner if desired. Game and local seafood are regulars on the menu and shooting and stalking can be arranged for you. The atmosphere in their beautifully appointed dining room is really lovely, with its fishing memorabilia and old photographs of local heritage. Here is my superb slow cooked lamb dish.

A perfect place to break the journey on the A9 - or just a great place for a day trip. House of Bruar has developed from an excellent foodie stop with some well chosen ladies and gents' clothing, into a very substantial retail outlet - delicatessan, kitchenware, clothing, home and garden. The restaurant has local butchers' sausages and haggis, gourmet seafood counter and tasty buffet options. All self service. The Food Hall is superb including a Q Guild Butchery department and massive CHEESE COUNTER. Remember to take your chill bag to bring home the cheeses and meats! By the way there are also the beautiful Falls of Bruar so you can walk off that chocolate cake afterwards!

Open your mind as you enter! You may be forgiven for thinking this is a fish & chip shop but whilst it's on the menu in its most sustainable form, so also are local butcher's sausages and burgers, all from the best suppliers and mentioned by name on their menus - well worth a visit! The Real Food Cafe has been extended with a lovely new build and justly has a great reputation with walkers and families for miles around and is on the West Highland Way. Perfect to break the journey, whether touring in a car or hiking in the hills! The atmosphere is buzzing. This entry is in the Trossachs section too as it is by the border!

A great new addition to SFG this stone dwelling has been here for 100's of years and, after various names as a coaching stop over the centuries, it relatively recently become The Tiel. Their enthusiasm for local produce is evident from the moment you look at the menu and award-winning chef proprietor Joyce certainly knows her stuff! The menu is a harmony of flavours to suit all tastes and appetites. We went for the tapas style selection where you could elect to have 3 tapas or 2 with a pudding. The slow cooked Puddledub pork was melt-in-the-mouth; the smoked haddock rissoles rich and tasty with a hint of chilli, and the beef skewers succulent. The decor is a delightful mix of solid natural woods, contemporary dining and attractive kitchenalia on the walls - not to mention the lovely log stoves glowing in the 2 hearths. The provenance is clear to see and a pleasure to taste so well worth the short trip to Auchtertool!
