Her cuisine is limited but she has as good an idea of breakfast as a Scotchwoman.’ That was Sherlock Holmes on the cooking of Mrs Hudson, his housekeeper at 221b Baker Street. For Holmes, that meant ham and eggs, but he would doubtless have been able to cope with the additional glories of the Scotch breakfast currently on offer at Craigmhor Lodge, Pitlochry in the Highlands.
Breakfast at Craigmhor means any or all of the following: porridge, fruit, muffins, bacon, local sausages, Stornoway black pudding, tattie scones, free-range Perthshire eggs, peat-smoked haddock, pancakes, toast, coffee and tea, and the producers of this terrific feast have just won the 2019 AA Breakfast of the Year Award. Apart from breakfast, Craigmhor also possesses wonderful views across the Highlands, more than a dozen en-suite bedrooms and several acres of woodland in which to walk off the preceding spread.
