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

We were recommended this place by locals. You will realise when you are in Glencoe, there are a number of average decent places to eat. However, there are 2, possibly 3 great places to eat. This being one of them. Its quite a quiet restaurant and nicely presented. We had the fillet steak and scalops for our mains. Both great.... More

Characterless décor and lighting but ignore this and enjoy the superb seafood and steaks. (Heavy on the sauces but hey - the sauces are very good too!) Very reasonable prices and good portions.
