My wife and I shared a magical evening here last night with our new born son.

The restaurant was recommended to us by an Australian couple we met in Aberfeldy the night before. What a great tip! Our visit made our short trip to Highland Perthshire.

The short walk to the restaurant from Aberfeldy over Wade's Bridge in the evening sunshine set the mood. The restaurant presents a nice aspect as you walk towards it, with hanging baskets and a large garden area.

We received a friendly welcome from the waiter, who took the time to speak to all guests. We sat on the terrace looking over the rolling hillside in the evening sunshine.

My wife thoroughly enjoyed the goat's cheese croquettes followed by a generous prawn platter. I had a delicious salmon gravlax and tasty haunch of venison cooked to perfection. Our new Australian friends joined us to make a wonderful night magical.

We hope to return in the near future.

We have been up to Aberfeldy many times over the last 25 years and driven and walked past the Ailean Chraggan many times.
It is an unimposing looking place and never seemed to be busy.
We popped in to have a look at the menu and were impressed so booked a table for that evening.
The atmosphere at dinner time was lively and very pleasant.
Our food was delicious and the menu is based on what is fresh and locally sourced.
I had roasted Camembert for a starter and a delicious piece of beautifully pink venison for my main course.
All washed down with a great pint of Inveralmond Thrappledouser.

We'll be back...

We only stopped for a couple of drinks.
Host gave us a warm welcome. Very friendly gentleman.
The place was in a fantastic location. With nicely kept gardens and great view.
We happened to be there in an unusually warm scottish day, so tables on the terrace were perfect, but even on a winter day would had been great, since the y had a glassed gallery, overlooking the beautiful scenery, with heaters all around.
Will definitely be back!

We returned to Allean Chraggan again after previous visits 8 months ago and once again were delighted with our meal and the great service. We had booked for early in the evening and were glad we had as the place filled up quite rapidly with a cheerful crowd of fellow diners and bar patrons. The welcome and service was great - as was the food.

We stayed at the Glassie Bunkhouse up the hill for a hen weekend and walked down through the woods to the Ailean Chraggan where Tony put on a 3 course choice menu for all 18 of us on the Saturday night. On arrival he gave us a Kir which was delicious and then we had our meal. After a day of activities at the Dunolly activity centre we were ravenous and devoured the delicious bread in a trice. Next followed three delicious courses which I would normally find too much but it was so tasty and perfect that I ate the lot as did nearly everyone else. Beautiful presentation of food, piping hot,great service. Genial host who even ran a couple of tired people back up the mountain early in the evening. And the locals in the bar were lovely as well. It took quite an effort to extract the hen from them. Good selection on the wine list.

Nice location just outside Aberfeldy and worth a visit. We visited twice during our stay . The hotel / dinning room does need a bit of a face lift. And we felt the food generally needed seasoning . But still of a good standard . Service was good and staff friendly .
