Incredible location in the ferry town of Lochaline just a short hop from the Isle of Mull. The food here is some of the very best and most locally sourced you will find in the Highlands. This place has won multiple awards and would probably...More

We caught the ferry from Mull for a birthday lunch and it is hard to see how it could have been bettered. Ingredients fresh and beautiful, the naturally tender left to speak for themselves, with other things (I’m thinking venison shoulder) cooked low and slow...More

£45 seemed like a lot to spend per head in this part of the world, but eating at the White House would have been worth twice, three times that price. The food - all inspired by and sourced from the Highland and Islands - was...More

We were staying in a cottage at Rahoy about 30 minutes away from the Whitehouse. Lochaline is only a small village but to have a restaurant of this standard there is remarkable. We paid for the 4 course meal, although they gave us a curried...More

The Whitehouse Restaurant in Lochaline makes the most of the West Coast larder on our doorstep. Lochaline langoustines and Sound of Mull dived scallops and crab are regulars, as are Seared Morvern stag's liver, heart and kidney with Tobermory whisky, lamb, mutton, beef and pork from local farmers. Our garden grows most of the herbs, salads and vegetables on the menu. Highland delicacies are foraged from hill and shore. We love celebrating Scottish food and drink - our fabulous local harvest served in a relaxed, informal atmosphere. The Lochaber environment is among the richest in Scotland. Our food puts it on your plate.
