Our lobsters are kept fresh in creels off the end of our pier and cooked to order as required. Seafood is our speciality so delighted you felt they were "to die for". We will hope to see you again sometime. Kind regards Nick More

Have just returned from a one night stay at the Pierhouse. Lovely room with loch view, exactly as advertised and excellent value for money for B&B. Table with a view for cooked breakfast on a bright November morning was icing on cake. Enjoyed pre-dinner drinks by the fire after watching the sun set over Lismore. The scallops were lovely, the...

Recently spent a week in this beautiful area, and discovered the Pierhouse one sunny lunchtime. The small patio was a great place to eat and enjoy the views. We found the staff very pleasant and efficient. While we only had a light meal, the food quality was very good and nicely presented. When we visit the area again, Pierhouse will... More

The venue, menu, service and food are very good although the prices are a bit too "high end". Nevertheless if you want to splash out this is the place to go. Its at the end of a single track road and looks out across Loch Linnhe and the short distance to Lismore Island.

Lovely setting in dining room and staff welcoming.

Seafood platter and Pan Fired Sea Bass best choices. Wine list good and reasonable... More
