We were recommended this place by the Pentland Lodge where we were staying. Menu was nice and "different". Local bottled ales. Not expensive No complaints.

Was recommended this restaurant by fellow bikers whilst riding the North Coast 500 as "great steak and seafood". Can't testify to the seafood because we had the steaks and they were delicious. Good value, nicely cooked meal - I'd eat here again.
