This restaurant is a must if you are in Fort William. Enjoy the finest seafood and an excellent white rioja whilst taking in the views across the loch. You can even go for a cruise after lunch. The mussels in white wine sauce are excellent, as are the salmon fishcakes. Our only regret is that we were only passing through... More

My Wife and I ate at the Crannog on 2 separate evenings after a recommendation from the owner of the B&B we were staying at. We weren't expecting anything wonderful but it was a total surprise. Firstly the restaurant building is a converted WWII structure which has been well designed to be beautifully functional. Our table was on the outer... More

We were very pleased with the food and service at this great seafood restaurant. We had the langoustines and the Monkfish. The monkfish was cooked perfectly. It was very fresh and moist and was served with a tomato salsa and rice with a hint of curry. The desserts were very tasty too. We found the service to be very friendly... More

Came to fort William and stumbled upon this absolute pearler of a seafood restaurant. The staff were phenomenally warming and attentive and where do you begin to talk about the food? The west coast seafood platter, that's where. Ginormous langoustines, crab claws with the sweetest crab meat, razor clams and an absolute abundance of juicy fat muscles served with an... More

If you enjoy fresh local fish this place is a must. You need to book and make sure you ask for a table right by the sea. The service is friendly and fast. There is a great selection of fish. The food is priced quite high but if you want an enjoyable meal in a lovely setting this is the... More

Read the small print on the menu - I was charged £1.95 for a second bowl of bread because I didn't read that bit. I thought it was unreasonably expensive after spending £80 for 4 for lunch but the food was good and the service friendly. The toilets are up a flight of narrow stairs so be warned. This was... More

A beautifully position on the shores of Loch Linnhe. The menu is predominantly fish and shellfish with some well chosen meat options. The haddock chowder was superb as was the lobster with mussels and samphire. My husband chose the surf n turf that he declared the best he had ever eaten. It was served on a bed of mash and... More
