Chef Dan Hunter made his name at another destination restaurant, the Royal Mail in Dunkeld – but it’s here at Brae, where he’s also the owner, that he’s taken even those high standards up another notch. Each day, he and his team select the best fruits and vegetables from the organic kitchen garden and then partner them with produce from ethical farmers to create dish after dish of gourmet hits. It might be Jerusalem artichoke and potato crisps served on a single poached yolk or confit calamari with pickled baby turnip and cucumber or a dessert of parsnip and apple – regardless, whatever you’re served, this is a place that creates outstanding foodie memories. Brae has won every award imaginable since opening in December 2013, so be sure to book in advance.
