We caught the Jacobite Express to Mallaig so had a couple of hours to enjoy lunch. Cornerstone Restaurant had a blackboard outside recommending their specials- looked good so we went upstairs for a meal. We did not have a booking which could have been a...More

This restaurant is family run, and they very welcoming. The Seafood is amazing, everything we had was beautiful. The restaurant is small and has a lovely view over the Harbour. It is a little expensive, but worth it.
