The seafood selection was very good, really fresh and well prepared. Tha lamb main course was excelled too; the 7 of us had the best meal on our 7 day tour of various islands off the west coast of Scotland.

Coll is fairly remote and Arinagour is very small, with places to eat very scarce. The Gannet is the only proper restaurant. That could be an excuse for lacklustre service and average food. How refreshing to find that it was not the case at all....More
