Lovely setting with views across Loch Linnhe. Staff friendly and provided a relaxed atmosphere. Mussel starter excellent. Venison and salmon delicious. I had duck. The dish was delicious. I would have preferred it slightly pinker than it was but in fairness the four clean plates at the end of the meal says it all.

My husband and I had a wonderful meal. The seafood was locally sourced and superbly prepared. The pepper sauce on the chicken and haggis was peppery perfection. The sticky toffee pudding (a favorite indulgence of mine when in the UK or Ireland) was hands down the very best I have ever had.

We went to the Holly Tree on our first and second evenings after arriving in Scotland. We were recommended to it by our hosts at the B&B. The food is very good, on the first visit we both had the roasted venison and on the second we had the haggis neeps and tatties. The service is efficient and courteous and... More

We popped in for lunch, very good, nice atmosphere , friendly staff. The restaurant has some interesting history which is displayed in the corridors. It is advisable to book if you would like to have dinner.

Good range of fish dishes, I had the mixed seafood main and it was delicious, perhaps a bit too "saucy" but certainly top quality fish as you would expect.

After all the rave reviews I found myself dissapointed not only with the initial service but also with the bland food. Perhaps I was just unlucky with chef that night, maybe if I went again things would be better.

This restaurant is part of the Hotel and the biggest thing that we liked about it all of the products for the food are locally sourced. The produce is from local farms. You can also get the restaurant menu in the pub. The first night I had the pumpkin ravioli and the second night the Salmon. Delicious.
