The home received the award on the rating of residents, friends and relatives.

Davina Ludlow, director of carehome.co.uk, said: “We feel the best people to rate a care home are the residents and their families and friends.

“Their recommendations show that so many care homes are warm and inviting places to live where residents receive loving and compassionate care.”

She added: “Pitmurchie Care Home has proved that it provides excellent care and we’d like to congratulate it on being a top recommended home in Scotland.

“It’s a wonderful achievement to be recognised for being a highly recommended home by the very people you care for.

“Looking for the right care home can be tough. We hope our awards will help to make people’s search that little bit easier.”

Pitmurchie Care Home manager John Murdoch said: “At Pitmurchie, we have been working hard over the past year and a half to improve the quality of life we provide for our residents.

“We are in the process of developing our dementia garden to allow our residents to walk outside in a secure garden area.

“We are delighted to be awarded this award and this has inspired us to continue to work hard to provide the best care home we can.”

The ratings covered the period from February 15 last year until February 15 this year.
