Topic - High quality restaurants or gastropubs in the Highlands?

Taurig - on 29 Nov 2012
Me and the girlfriend have our anniversary this weekend. The plan was to go out for a meal on Saturday night, probably to some overpriced restaurant in Glasgow that serve you three scallops for 15 and leaves you wanting a chippy afterwards.

I thought a better idea might be to make a day of it on Sunday; take a drive up north, maybe go for an easy walk or see some visitor attraction, then get lunch or dinner in a good restaurant or gastropub. It's the last bit I'm stuck on, as it's easy to find reviews on places in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Abderdenn and so on but not so much out in the styx. I've read in various broadsheets that there are old drovers inn's and so on that serve Michelin-aspirational food in spectacular settings, but can't recall the names. I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations or had heard of any? I'd be willing to drive for up to about 2 hours from Glasgow, west or east coast, doesn't matter.

The main thing is I'm talking good food cooked by a chef, not a microwaved shepherd's pie and chips (I would like to keep my testicles attached to my body...) This idea may get veto'd, but brownie points for trying are always good. ;) Any recommendations gratefully received.
