The five star Glenapp Castle has lost its Michelin Star status after the latest edition of the Michelin Guide was released this week.
The luxury relais and chataeux hotel in Ballantrae suffered the fate almost a year to the day after they were awarded the prestigious title in 2013.
Last year they were awared the accolade at a time when they also won three AA Rosettes, as well as retaining their Five Star Award in London at the AA awards.
However, they weren’t the only Scottish restaurant to suffer the fate as Inverlochy Castle Hotel which has been a famous haunt for royalty, politicians and celebrities over the years also wasn’t included in the list.
The Three Chimneys in Skye and the Isle of Eriska hotel in Argyll were new additions to the Michelin Starred list whilst Andrew Fairlie at Gleneagles, host of the weekend’s Ryder Cup tournament held onto both his Michelin Stars.
Other Michelin Starred places in Scotland on the list included Braidwoods in Dalry, North Ayrshire, Martin Wishart at Loch Lomond, 21212 in Edinburgh, the Kitchin in Edinburgh, and Knockinaam Lodge at Portpatrick.
