Where to eat
A five-minute drive from Barcaldine Castle, Hawthorn Restaurant serves classics such as prime sirloin of Scottish beef with vine tomatoes, mushrooms, onion marmalade and chips (mains from £9).

Where to stay
A former military outpost, Barcaldine Castle, near the village of Benderloch, retains many of its features. After a Scottish breakfast in the Great Hall, look at spooky portraits of its Victorian occupants and search for hidden panels leading to secret passageways. On the ground floor, ponder the fate of prisoners kept in its dungeon, before seeking shortbread from the kitchen (from £115).
