Three Scottish restaurants win new Michelin stars

Three restaurants in Scotland have gained a Michelin star, while two have lost one, leaving the country with a 15 one-star establishments, and Andrew Fairlie at Gleneagles retaining its two stars.

The three restaurants to gain a star were:

Glenapp Castle, Ballantrae, South Ayrshire
Martin Wishart at Loch Lomond, Balloch, West Dunbartonshire

The two deletions were:

Champany Inn, Linlithgow, West Lothian
Plumed Horse, Edinburgh

Commenting on winning a star, Dominic Jack, chef-patron of Castle Terrace said: "We're delighted. Everyone has been working very hard and it is brilliant news. It is great to be recognised." The restaurant was last year named as a rising star after just six months of being in business.

Adam Stokes, head chef at Glenapp Castle said: "It is fantastic news. It has been nearly four years of hard work which we are getting recognised for, and it certainly has come as a surprise. We have already had a glass of Champagne with the team to celebrate. We have had such an exciting week - we got awarded four AA rosettes 10 days ago, and it is my 30th birthday in two days' time."
