Scotland is more than glorious rolling hillsides, and charming countryside – with great natural beauty comes the most sought after natural produce. Fresh, high-quality and traditional are just some of the words that Scottish cuisine has become synonymous with, leading to a rich and diverse food culture that Scots show off with pride and adoration – and rightly so! You’ve probably heard of the classic traditional Scottish food recipes with favourites of haggis and neeps and tatties, though there is so much more to offer with several traditional delicacies only available to try in specific regions within Scotland. It goes without saying that the best and only way to experience the high-quality produce and distinct flavours is right in the heart of Scotland.
We have compiled a list of the must-try Scottish delicacies available at our new restaurant:
- Cullen Skink
- Homemade shortbread
- Scottish Salmon Fillet
- Brown Shrimp
- Squid-Ink Mash
- Smoked Salmon Mousse
- Whipped Goat’s Cheese & Walnut
- Saffron Cream & Salmon Roe
Sourced from the finest farms and fisheries that Scotland has to offer, our new restaurant Monadh prepares traditional cuisine freshly made by our passionate and expertly trained chefs. Experience food and drink at the heart of Scotland in our fine dining restaurant without the fuss.
Treat yourself and your loved ones at our hotel in Pitlochry and indulge in a culinary experience like no other, or make a weekend of it and experience one of the best luxury hotels in Scotland here at Dunalastair Hotel Suites.
Quick Overview of ‘Monadh’
We have made some exciting changes for our new Scottish restaurant opening and renamed from Edina’s to Monadh meaning ‘moorland covered mountain’. Our new Scottish Gaelic name is inspired by our picturesque location in the foothills of Craig Varr and reflects our new direction in which we are taking guests on a journey with us – inspired by nature.
Monadh is dedicated to serving hearty traditional Scottish dishes with an inclusive menu, serving up both hearty and healthy Scottish food with plant-based, halal and vegan options. Monadh serves breakfast, lunch and dinner using our fresh and speciality ingredients, including an array of classic Scottish snacks throughout the day.
Simon Kelman, is our head chef, honing his craft in some of Scotland’s best kitchens from the age of 16. With AA Rosettes to his name, our acclaimed head chef lovingly crafts traditional Scottish dishes using only fresh and local ingredients with a gourmet flair.

With some 350,000 Scots said to be eating a plant-based diet and an increased demand for vegan eateries and restaurants, we are proud to be part of the growing passion for plant-based cuisine. We have recently announced our own Flawlessly Vegan menu to offer our guests and visitors a fresh, delicious array of plant-based options at our vegan-friendly restaurant in Pitlochry.
