The Boath House is a restaurant with rooms in the Scottish Highlands, run by Sessions Arts Club team Florence Knight and Jonny Gent.

This Grade A-listed Georgian mansion stands proud in the Highlands, and has done so since 1827 when it was built by Scottish architect Archibald Simpson for Sir James Dunbar. As well as housing a number of guest rooms, the three-storey Boath House also boasts 16 acres of grounds, outdoor cabins and a walled garden. It is often touted as one of Scotland's most beautiful regency houses.

The latest incarnation of The Boath House sees Florence Knight, Jonny Gent and Russell Potter - the trio behind London hangout Sessions Arts Club - take over the celebrated Highland guest house and restaurant. Gent and Potter have overseen the renovation and transformation of the house, whilst Knight brings her understated, pared-back signature style to the menus at both the Garden Cafe and the Dining Room

As is true at Sessions Arts Club, The Boath House is a space that promotes art and cultural pursuits. A wide spectrum of creatives, from artists and writers to chefs and musicians, have been handpicked to take up residency at the house, in order to make the space a 'sanctuary for creatives'. Following Gent and Potter's restoration of Sessions Arts Club, it comes as no surprise that The Boath House has embraced its regency heritage in a way that is simultaneously chic but relaxed.

Meanwhile, Knight's cooking style is a superb fit for Scotland's bountiful produce. Her menus often take inspiration from Britain, France and the Mediterranean, but dishes are tied together by a celebration of great produce - something Scotland has in spades. The Garden Café offers a frequently changing menu of simple plates that let good ingredients sing, whilst The Dining Room is currently waiting on its grand opening.
