Visited here after a recommendation. Our food was brilliant and I'd like to pass the recommendation on. It sounds as if they are usually very busy for obvious reasons. Be sure to book.

Smart stop in Glencoe. Book in advance if you can. Fills up quickly. We had to eat in the bar. Friendly people in this little town.

Hi. It is safer to book if you want to eat in the restaurant, especially at the weekend. We also run the same menu in the bar where you don't need a reservation. The number is 01855811940 if you want to book in advance 😀
