Luxury Scotland welcomes Kinross House

We extend a warm welcome to  Kinross House, the latest member of Luxury Scotland.

An impressive and prestigious Scottish Palladian mansion house, Kinross House is available to hire for exclusive use. The House boasts a wealth of fine art, paintings, antiques and Scottish artifacts, many of which has been in the house for hundreds of years. Together with the sumptuous interiors and stunning location this makes for a truly rare guest experience.

Kinross House was built in 1685 and is the first neoclassical Palladian mansion ever built in Scotland. Described in Country Life Magazine as ‘the complete expression in stone of the Renaissance in Scotland’, the property was Sir William Bruce’s greatest masterpiece.

The House is located on the banks of Loch Leven and possesses one of the most historic views in Scotland with vistas directly across to Loch Leven Castle Island where, in 1567, Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned and forced to abdicate. Scottish history has been made on this Castle Island with key people setting foot there including Robert the Bruce, Sir William Wallace, John Knox and King Robert II.

Mr Donald Fothergill’s purchase of Kinross House in 2011 heralded the beginning of a total renovation project of a magnitude that can only be described as a labour of love. The restoration work was completed in 2013 and the property was winner of the prestigious Historic Houses Association and Sotheby’s UK Restoration Award of the year. No expense has been spared to make this breathtaking property reflect Sir William Bruce’s vision for opulent entertaining which will only be seen and experienced by the few. It truly is a unique and regal place of unparalleled beauty, fit for a King!

Kinross House Montage

The estate now comprises over 100 acres of formal gardens, woodland, Loch Leven Castle Island and Loch Leven (the largest loch in the Scottish lowlands). The area is of outstanding beauty and it was declared a National Nature Reserve (NNR) in 1964.

Ideally suited to host the ultimate exclusive use gathering, whether it be for a special family occasion or corporate event, Kinross House offers 14 bedrooms and The Coach House (an exquisitely converted stable block) provides a further 10 bedrooms. The Coach House also includes a very charming boutique Day Spa and picturesque courtyard garden complete with doocot and a walled kitchen garden.

Visitors from across the globe now have the opportunity to enjoy this unique experience. The experienced onsite team at Kinross House can assist with arranging a whole range of different activities to suit guests, from golf outings, whisky tastings or outdoor pursuits, to fishing and boating on Loch Leven and helicopter rides!

Four new Awards to Iain Burnett Highland Chocolatier

Last week Iain Burnett Highland Chocolatier added yet another 7 stars to over 40 prestigious awards received for his renowned Velvet Truffles.

 

The Great Taste Awards judges have just announced that Master Chocolatier and truffle specialist Iain Burnett, from Grandtully in Highland Perthshire, has been awarded 4 new awards. Last year Iain Burnett’s Velvet Truffles were awarded Best Truffle in the World for the second time at the World Finals of the International Chocolate Awards. The Great Taste Awards judges include chefs, food critics, restaurateurs and buyers from Fortnum & Mason, Selfridges and Harvey Nichols. From thousands of entries, the judges said the Velvet Truffles were “Outstanding – above and beyond delicious”.

 
The judges’ comments speak for themselves – the Orange & Clove Velvet Truffle is “beautiful looking… extremely well made… really delicious… a beautifully executed smooth ganache… the touch of orange and gentle twist of clove are in perfect harmony with the fruity cacao. This is brilliant!” The Espresso Mocha Velvet Truffle has an “excellent balance between the dark chocolate and the coffee with a lovely creaminess… very rich, luxurious texture, velvety, pure… simple but exquisite… a great after-dinner treat.” The Ginger Velvet Truffle has “a gorgeous melt… spices are fresh… incredible, so spicy and warming… intriguing little Pandora boxes of pleasure and naughtiness… an exquisite, delicious, brilliantly made product”. The Strawberry & Star Anise Velvet Truffle is a “very smooth ganache with a gentle sharpness from the strawberry… we loved the luxurious silkiness of the ganache”.

 

The judges’ comments underline Burnett’s approach to pure, natural ingredients and the refinement of highly skilled artisanal methods in his chocolate kitchen in Grandtully, Perthshire. The internationally recognised Scottish Artisan responded to the awards by saying “it is fantastic that these judges recognise in a blind tasting the value of artisan skills and exceptional ingredients – it is testimony to the rare fruity and spicy cocoa from the South Atlantic Island of São Tomé, this exceptional unblended fresh cream from a single herd of Perthshire cows, and a team with the patience and passion for excellence to create the special texture which the Velvet Truffles have become famous for.”

 

Iain Burnett has been creating bespoke Velvet Truffles for Michelin star chefs, corporate clients and Master Distillers for over a decade and sells them online for delivery as gifts all over the world. Based in the picturesque village of Grandtully, between Aberfeldy and Pitlochry, his specialised chocolate kitchen can be seen in the Scottish Chocolate Centre which has become an award winning 4 star attraction for locals and visitors who travel far to enjoy the chocolate Exhibition, gourmet Chocolate Shop and new Chocolate Lounge. He has recently launched audio-guided Tours and Tastings of the Velvet Truffles.

 

The Great Taste Awards is one of the most respected food accreditation schemes for artisan and specialty food producers. During the last 5 months over 500 judges have been meeting to identify the winning products. These judges come from all corners of the gourmet world to take part in a blind tasting of each product entered, ranging from Iain Burnett’s hand-made truffles, to artisan cheeses and preserves. To ensure a complete balance of expertise, age and gender the judging takes place in groups of 3 or 4. The judges are looking for truly great taste. They take into account the texture, appearance and of course the ingredients; they like a good aroma, a decent bite, a smooth finish or a lingering flavour. Everything comes back to taste.
