Most remarkable seafood dinner in a while. Took the seafood platter for two, after a fish entree. Langoustines were plenty and very fresh, excellent mussels, scallops and a seabed of prawns completed the picture. Strongly recommended

Newly opened in 2016 we serve delicious local cuisine in the Terrace, indoor and out. Come and sample some excellent food matched with a extensive selection of wine. There is a choice of almost 300 malt whiskeys and 20 gins, you can enjoy in front of the cozy stove watching one of the best views Scotland has to offer.
