Boath House restaurant with rooms and garden café, a luxury Country house set in 22 acres of stunning gardens.  A small family run business with very high service and attention to detail. Built by one of Scotland's foremost architects almost 200 years ago, this Georgian mansion sits in 20 acres of manicured gardens, lawns and lake. This small but elegant house was built on the ruins of a tower dating back to the 1400s when it was mentioned in the court circulars of Mary Queen of Scots.
