We've been spending weekends on the west coast of Scotland for the past few years, on a quest for the best seafood. I think we have found it. The scallops with popcorn mussels were cooked to perfection and oozing with freshness. And it was served so pleasantly by a small but warm band of happy staff! It was a pleasure to be at the hotel over the June weekend and see how a happy hotel works. It wasn't just the seafood. The first course (one evening - beautifully smoked pigeon breast and another evening -a stunning beetroot concoction) matched the cooking of the main course. And the breakfasts were equally well constructed- from the preserves, muesli, real yoghurt to the quality of the poached eggs. Bravo to Royal an Lochan for your care...and this includes the chef, who I dont think we saw. A beautiful room, too, and matching the quality of the hotel and its food, it was spotless! Dont judge a book by its cover......from the outside, the Royal an Lochan is not the quaintest hotel to look at.
