This was the "treat" for myself and my wife on our motorcycle tour of the Outer Hebrides and Western Highlands. And we were not disappointed. The set menu in the restaurant, though expensive, was sublime, and beautifully presented fresh (almost all local) ingredients were cooked to perfection. A gastronomic dream in the most beautiful of settings.
Friendly staff were not at all put off by our arrival on two motorbikes, tired after our crossing from Stornoway to Ullapool. Though I did notice the odd strange glance from fellow guests though they soon warmed to us after we appeared suited and booted for dinner.
Great breakfasts and everything was beautifully presented.
Not cheap but worth every penny if you want something a bit special.
