We ate at the Whitehouse on our return from a day on Mull. Prompt service from a very helpful waitress serving warm and sweet tasting home made soda bread. My salmon starter was fresh and melt in the mouth. We both had the local lamb as a main course, it was perfectly cooked and tender. Pudding was original and seasonal,... More

We visited for lunch on a rather wet and windy day in October. As a result of the terrible weather for the previous 2 days there was no fresh fish as the boats were unable to get out. However I had the version charcuterie and the lamb both of which were great quality and very tasty. The day we visited... More

On Friday my wife and I attended an end of season curry evening at the Whitehouse. It was a set menu with the main elements being a chicken curry and a mutton curry, which were both done in delicious Southern Indian styles. The main dishes were complemented by a range of tasty side dishes and accompaniments. Diners were invited to... More

A friend recommended we explore this fascinating place so we planned well and dined promptly at noon en route home from Mull via the Lochaline Ferry. We were first to arrive but the tables soon filled. The atmosphere is relaxed and inspiring. The view from the table included the kitchen preparation area so I learned a lot whilst waiting. We...

Delicious food - beautifully presented and wonderfully executed - we stumbled across this place by accident when going to Lochaline for the weekend - we turned up at five past nine and they were happy to still serve us. Prices are fairly high but then it is high end restaurant quality food that you are paying for - and it... More

This was our 3rd visit to this restaurant and once again we could not fault the food. The starters were excellent, I had the chicken liver parfait and my husband had the shrimp done in a tin, much fancier than it sounds and it tasted wonderful. For the main course we both had halibut and the taste and presentation was... More

Motor sailed to Lochaline on a mid September weekend from Ballachulish with Mrs McFS and had been her that the Whitehouse would be a great treat when we arrived at the pontoons. It's a short walk to the village through its industrial heart, a silica quarry's loading pier. The pure white sand is used for high quality glass. Pass the... More

My wife and I had dinner with friends whilst cruising on the west coast. We made use of the new pontoons and the meal was innovative, beautifully presented and the blend of tastes great. We enjoyed our meal so much that we returned by car this month and once again were treated to a memorable dinner. The staff were friendly... More

We tried to book for dinner but they were full and offered us lunch the following day. It's hard to plan to be in a specific place when cruising on a slow sailing boat but that worked. The meal was outstanding. My starter was a gazpacho with a scoop of basil sorbet in the middle and a pair of langoustine.... More
