First off, make a reservation as it is very busy and there is nothing worse than driving all that way and to be disappointed. We managed to get a table for an hour, which wasn't long enough to be honest, but we were amazingly grateful...More

Lochleven Seafood Café, Deli and Gift Shop is situated on the shores of beautiful Loch Leven3 (on the B86 in North Ballachulish) on the west coast in the Highlands of Scotland.

Allowing the sea loch and mountain views to take centre stage alongside our simple yet elegant seafood dishes, our café is designed modest and unamusing.

Live shellfish for our family run Restaurant and Deli is kept in onsite seawater tanks where the water is pumped continuously from the cold clean sea-loch on our shore. After being caught locally by our own fishing boats, the shellfish is stored in these tanks. This allows our Chefs to access the freshest possible west coast seafood for the Restaurant and our Deli.
