Great food and drink at a more than reasonable price.

A short menu, but only great quality. The seafood pasta and deserts were to die for! Wendy and Peter are very nice hosts. Everything was perfect.

We stayed at the Rockvilla a coupe of weeks ago and it was brilliant. The view from the room was breathtaking, we looked right out over the loch. The room was excellent, clean and modern. We had an eveing meal, which is the best meal I have had in years. I'm veggie and had wild mushroom pasta, totally yum. Hubs... More

Not only was the food great at Rockvilla Restaurant (the menu offered a small, but great and diverse selection of food), owner and cook Wendy was a delight as well. Her views on food are inspiring. And she was probably the nicest person we met on our trip (which says something with all the great folks!), which made this night... More

We booked the Rockvilla - 8 of us, from the 19th - 26th of July 2014. It was excellent. The Villa is fantastic for a family holiday or a group of friends just wanting to meet up and have a wonderful time. The bedrooms are big and spotlessly clean and the bathrooms are modern and we had lovely fluffy towels.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and ate at the restaurant on two night. Lovely, friendly, relaxed atmosphere in this small restaurant. Good vegetarian choices for me and my husband really enjoyed his thai curry. The salad to start was delicious too. The portions are quite generous so be sure to leave space if you have a sweet tooth/I'd recommend... More

The Rockvilla is a nice enough place. The staff - a mother & son team - are friendly & welcoming and the atmosphere convivial. But the food, alas, is pretty average. The Cuillin Skink - a traditional creamy soup with smoked haddock & potatoes - to start was pretty good but after that it was a bit of a let... More

Delicious food, especially the Cullen Skink and the warm mackarel salad. The food is very fresh, colorful and good-smelling, always presented with great care: pleasing to the eye, the nose and the mouth! Desserts are also great. The service is excellent, warm and friendly atmosphere, beautiful location. Very clean and tidy, cozy and relaxing. Made me love Scottish cooking!
