About Saplinbrae Hotel and Lodges

Independently run by a local farming family. We love to use the best Scottish ingredients from land and sea. Expect classics and invention from a kitchen that loves to cook from scratch.
Sunday roasts are a specialty so why not bring the family and enjoy a walk around Pitfour lake. Our homemade cakes and puddings are legendary. Our relaxed lunch menu offers a great selection for everyone.
The hotel also offers self catering accommodation where pets are welcome. We look forward to seeing you at Saplinbrae.

Covid restrictions mean it’s not so cosy or friendly but we are all in it together. We had a great time. Thank you.

What a pleasure to dine in a beautiful room with great service and a lovely atmosphere. The food was fabulous! Both lamb shank cassoulet and lemon sole goujon mains were spot on (just a slightly bigger pot of the delicious tartare sauce would have been great). Sticky toffee pudding as always hit the spot for my husband and I absolutely loved the rhubarb and elderflower cold crumble combination. I love rhubarb and this was perfection! Seriously good value for money. Thank you for a lovely dining experience.

Nothing but praise for the food and service. Really lovely fresh and flavorful food. Would have liked to enjoy the wine selection but not being served due to restrictions. A lovely relaxed and much needed evening out.

Took my mother for birthday lunch on 01/05/21. There was a wedding at same time, the party had their own space away from diners but lovely to see the kilts and dresses from the window. I took fish slate and mother had pasta. Big portions. Very tasty food and well presented. Friendly staff. Had a walk round the lake afterwards, beautiful setting.

I’ve only given 4 stars for food and drink as we both felt there was too much food on our plate (we had lemon sole goujons)
