We had some great seafood at Rockvilla. The restaurant is located at the shore in the very nice village Locharron. Don't miss the sticky toffie pudding!

Not much choice of places to eat in Lochcarron, but this place deserves to succeed because the owners are friendly and although the menu is limited, the food is good.

After a long day we received a very friendly welcome here and we appreciated that they stayed to cook for us after their normal closing time. Compared to some of the outstanding restaurants in the area the food here was quite basic comfort food.

Rockvilla has a couple of tables, which are normally occupied by their guests and if not all rooms are booked, they might have some tables for other people. The menu is a mix of dishes they have in the menu and items written on the blackboard on the wall (so extra fresh). The portions are pretty generous and taste great.... More

Went to Rockvilla for dinner while visiting family. The owner was very welcoming and friendly. The selection of dishes on offer was good and we all found something we liked. The quality of the food was excellent and the helpings very generous. We all had a very enjoyable meal and the price was very reasonable. Would highly recommend.

I stayed here a couple of years ago with my husband and we had another lovely trip this summer. Although the weather was no perfect but you cannot guarantee this in Scotland in the summer! We stayed in June and we had a fantastic time. The food was delicious and you can tell very good quality. My husband loves your... More

Food is fine but really overpriced. We were met in a very grumpy fashion and not made to feel welcome. There are no low price options here and limited choice. We've had lovely food here some years ago but won't bother coming here again.

First time I ever had it. The restaurant was full but you always felt that you were the most important. Thank you for a great evening. PS. The... More

We recently visited Lochcarron for my birthday weekend and decided to go to Rockvilla - what an excellent decision that turned out to be. We had the Cullen Skink which is the best I have ever had and the Seafood Linguini for main. The food, service and value for money were exceptional and it was so good we returned the... More
