We ate two nights running at the Crannog.What a delight.It does not look anything from the outside but is really nice and the staff are lovely.
There is a good menu and the wine list is reasonable.The prices are not cheap but well worth the expense when you are on holiday.The variety of fish was wonderful.

Having read the reviews I was expecting a lot and this restaurant appeared to have a lot to live up to. However, on a windy, wet Friday evening in October the crackling wood stove made an instant impression. The service was excellent and the food truly out of this world. The Supreme of Shetland Salmon was cooked to perfection with an almost silk like consistency. Even in the top restaurants in London would food struggle to compete with this. I will definately return. Everyone should eat at Crannog. Amazing!

I really liked the Cronnog's. It is located directly at the Loch with an excellent view at the surrounding mountains.
If you like fresh fish you are at the right place. They offer excellent fresh fish dishes und good wines. Try the mussels and maybe look for the daily catch at the menu board.

Take care you do a reservation or show up at 6:00 p.m. when the open gates, otherwise there is a good chance you will not get a seat, even if it is not in main holiday season.

Interesting:
If you like beer, give the offered Heather Ale brews a try.

Visited this restaurant on the recommendation of the host in our B&B.
Unfortunately, despite my love of seafood I was dissapointed. The food was indeed fresh and well presented, by attentive staff but the cost was prohibitive. I feel that almost £9.00 for a cheese board with only three very small pieces of cheese is ripping off customers. The meal from the menu cost us £64.00. That was for two starters, two main courses and one cheese board and coffee for two.

Thank you for your comments regarding Crannog Restaurant. We are sorry to hear that you did not fully enjoy your experience with us; your feedback is appreciated and noted.

We try to take great care and attention in the sourcing all of our produce, in particular we source all of our produce from within Scotland. As you can appreciate, this obviously affects our pricing in order for us to be able to serve the best quality fresh food, from as close to our locality as possible.

We do want to provide a good balance with our menu while also offering value for money, and for that reason we have a daily special two course lunch menu for £9.95, which varies depending on the catch landed and the availability of seasonal produce.
