New Chefs for Loch Lomond Arms Hotel.

Four-star hotel the Loch Lomond Arms in Luss, Scotland has appointed Allan McLaughlin (left) as head chef.

He joins from his previous head chef role at Woodlands Park in Surrey.

His sous chef, David Hetherington, has also recently been appointed. He was previously at the Riverhill Deli & Café, and the Buttery in Glasgow (and cooked for Michel Roux Jr when appearing on BBC’s MasterChef: The Professionals in 2012).

McLaughlin said: “I am passionate about using the produce that is all around us. We are able to pick beetroot, herbs, onions and elephant garlic from the garden; pheasant, black faced lamb and venison come from the Luss Estate, and naturally salmon from Argyll. We want to put Loch Lomond Arms on the map for the quality and innovative food that we offer.”

Set within an 18th century coaching inn, Loch Lomond Arms hotel has 14 bedrooms and seven holiday cottages, and underwent a £3m refurbishment before its re-opening in its current state in 2012.

Berry good beer!

loch  ness brewery

The Loch Ness Brewery has teamed up with soft fruit experts from the James Hutton Institute near Dundee and a Fife berry farmer to create a new blackberry beer : Berry LochNESS beer.

Described as a traditional Scottish 80/-, produced from a blend of 5 different malts to give a big biscuit and chocolate flavour. The addition of Loch Ness blackberries softens these malty flavours, and gives the beer a gentle sweet finish rather than the drier finish of the original LochNESS beer on which it’s based.
