Ord House is a beautiful 17th century country house, originally the home of the chief of the clan MacKenzie.
Ord House is a beautiful 17th century country house, originally the home of the chief of the clan MacKenzie. The period furniture and open log fires give comfort and an intimate, quiet and relaxing ambience that is hard to find in the modern age. We use our own vegetables in the highly acclaimed restaurant which features the best of Scottish produce. House specialities include game and shellfish.
The house sits in 60 acres of its own gardens and woodlands and offers peace and tranquillity to all our visitors. There is also a resident ghost. She can be heard occasionally at night walking the corridors - in fact she has been sighted in one of the bedrooms sitting on the end of the bed. Her favourite pastime is to remove pictures which she dislikes from the walls. She then props them up, unbroken against the walls.
The Ord House Hotel is a homely, welcoming establishment that serves good honest food in a home cooked style. Set in its own grounds, a little off the beaten track, it is well worth seeking out for a pleasant meal in traditional, country house surroundings.
Pan Seared Salmon Fillet served with Lemon and Butter Sauce: "Salmon Fillet laid across a bed of Mashed Potatoes, additional colour from the sauce with herbs through it. The Stir Fried Leeks had a good colour to them and the sliced Beans were still a vibrant green." "Moist pieces of salmon, firm fillet. Smooth mashed potatoes " "Good zingy flavour to the Lemon and Butter sauce."
