New Six by Nico venture

Killiecrankie House in Perthshire re-opened this week with a new restaurant and five wonderfully designed bedrooms, delivering a little piece of luxury and gastronomy in the Cairngorm National Park. Guests can enjoy a new dinner and cocktail menu in the Drawing Room, which overlooks the kitchen gardens and fruit trees, or in the bijou Cocktail Bar. I think it’s time I planned a road trip north.

Beat 6

The team behind the Six by Nico family of restaurants have confirmed a November opening for their new charitable restaurant in Glasgow. Beat 6, which will make its home on Whitehill Street, Dennistoun, will serve a delicious combination of food and social good. Profits will go towards the Beatson Cancer Charity, which supports the Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre. The 34-cover restaurant will have a rotating tasting menu that honours some of the most popular dishes created by the Six By Nico team since opening their first restaurant in Glasgow in 2017.
