Two north-east hotels have been recognised at a leading industry awards ceremony.
Douneside House, in Tarland, and Alford-based Kildrummy Inn were awarded accolades at the 17th Scottish Hotel Awards.
The event, which was this year postponed due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, is dubbed the “Scottish hotel Oscars” and aims to recognise the hospitality talent across the country.
Kildrummy Inn was awarded the accolade for Informal Fine Dining, while Douneside House not only received the award for Whisky Bar of the Year in the north-east of Scotland, but also Restaurant of the Year.
Director of the awards, Simon Temlett, said: “Scottish hotels are working through the current crisis with great fortitude.
“We look forward to sharing some much-needed good news and celebrating the achievements of our members at this challenging and unprecedented time.”
Deputy chairman, Vivien Devlin, added: “This year’s awards will be a genuine and up-to-date reflection of achievement.
“Despite the timing of lockdown measures, we were able to complete over 80% of our on-site research and judging and, thanks to the depth of knowledge of our panel of expert judges, we were able to agree a full and thorough set of results.”
