We had seabass and the seafood platter. The seabass was good according to my friend but the seafood platter was poor. The mussels and oysters were ok but the langostines and the scallops did not look appetising and lacked any flavour. Not the best experience.

Ate at the Captain's Table. Delicious, warming chowder on a Winter's day; beautiful views across the Loch. Chowder and sandwich combo is large and well priced.

Food here was simply amazing. Cullenk Skink was the best we have tasted. The haggis was great and I'm told the venison was melt in the mouth delicious. Good selection of wines too. Will happily travel the 150 miles to eat here again!

We have just visited for dinner and it was lovely. The smoked haddock chowder is a must try. We will definitely be back again soon.

Along the highway and on its own; great for a overnight stop. The food (not to dismiss service and ambiance) here is unparalleled. I don't understand why this isn't raved about at a regional level. I enjoy seafood, and have ate it all over the world (Australia, South America, Europe, east & west coast North America - Canada & US)... More
