“Here in the northernmost area of Britain is a grand Scottish country house which thankfully takes its food seriously. Chef Michael Simpson draws on superb local and near-local produce: Loch Fyne salmon, sweet Orkney crab, Scotch beef fillet from the Highlands. Even the water here taste good although the whisky tastes better. What’s also nice about Culloden is that for a country house it isn’t too uptight, although prices reflect its style and standards. Children are welcome, and vegetarians too.”

Whisky Tastings in Library Bar
We are happy to arrange a tastings of whiskys in our Library Bar.
As one would expect the cellars of Culloden House brim with Malt Whiskies, a passion which has resulted in us being recognized as Malt Whisky Ambassadors and a Malt Whisky Embassy by the Scottish Malt Whisky Society.
Many of our malts are rare, exclusive and not available to purchase in even the more famous whisky shops, that is because we buy many of them from private collectors and specialty auctions which provide 100% provenance as well as the best possible price.
So, what of this impressive collection, is it under lock and key? Is it that exclusive that it becomes elusive? No, whisky is to be enjoyed, they make it to drink it, as they say “Save it for a rainy day” well maybe that’s why God affords us so many rainy days in Scotland! You are invited to visit our famous whisky trolley, 160 of the best bottles around, some expensive but mostly affordable so as not to draw your breath like a big peaty Islay malt.
Uisge Beatha, ‘the water of life’, is without doubt Scotlands greatest export, so, sit back in our Forbes Library Bar and allow us to pour you a good dram, Slainte Mhath!
