Really overrated seafood restaurant that failed to deliver with either of our mains. My salmon was over, and the bisque was tasteless although it made a nice colour on the plate. The veg was minimal and looked like it'd been cut by my 90yo nan. Service was very good. Very expensive for mediocre pub food.

First time to the Crannog as a guest and it was a very good experience. The service and food were excellent, especially the fish which was all local and cooked expertly. The atmosphere was very warm and conducive and a great evening was enjoyed by all.

Stopped here for lunch on the way to Skye and we are very glad we did. Top class restaurant with a cracking view and the food was sensational. No doubt we will be back!

Quirky little place on a pier, overlooking the loch. Amazing seafood, great service and even otters playing in the water. Not the cheapest but the fish is as fresh as it gets. Great offers with the lunch specials. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed a beautiful dinner here on our 30th Wedding Anniversary, the staff were very friendly and attentive shown us to a lovely window seat over looking the Loch. Romantic way to close our day, to watch the settings sun following a delicious meal with a glass of Port on what was a special occasion for us.

Booked this restaurant for our arrival in Fort William based on our hosts suggestion from our B&B at the Treetops. It did not disappoint. Located right on the waterfront, in fact over it, as it is on a dock. Fantastic views only added to the very courteous and attentive service. Started with the mussels and they were stunning in a...
