In Kyle of Lochalsh for 2 nights and looking for fresh seafood. Dinner first night was excellent, so we went the second night and dinner was equally good. Note - some parking is available at the end of the station near the water.

Great service by friendly staff. I had a fish starter and salmon for a main course. The food was cooked perfectly. Beer was a little expensive at nearly £5 for a 330ml bottle.

As previous responder said: the restaurant is small but we can manage a wheelchair. The main door has a slight lip, but not a step. Also as they said, it has been very busy so best to book . 01599534813. Thank you. Neil
