Looking for somewhere new to go for dinner, me and my partner decided to go to Forbes of Kingennie for the night. Even though the winter weather had arrived the front of house was warm and welcoming. Nice varied menu, and I decided on the roast chicken stuffed with Stornaway black pudding and my boyfriend went for the beef burger....

We stayed three nights in a lovely lodge overlooking the fishing pond. Great for dogs - good walking country. Nice bar. Did not try restaurant as did all our own cooking. Nice golf course only 9 holes but even has a par 5. Would love to return in the summer months.

We stayed in The Lodge from the 14th to the 18th of November, this was our first visit and we were most impressed with the lodge.
