The west coast of Scotland is a bonnie place indeed, but where do you go to eat?


For something a bit special, we’d recommend the Torridon Hotel. It’s restaurant,1887 gets it’s name from the year the hotel was built, when it was a shooting lodge to the Earl of Lovelace. Redesigned in February 2020, the restaurant exudes contemporary elegance with flamboyant touches and it’s cuisine is prepared using fresh produce from The Torridon FarmKitchen Garden and surrounding land and lochs. The Scot’s pine panelled dining room and conservatory is the perfect place to enjoy exquisite food in an intimate location.


Gairloch offers an abundance of stunning scenery & activities. There are several spectacular sandy beaches, such as Redpoint, which offers fantastic views over to Raasay, Skye and the Western Isles. With many dramatic, rocky coastlines to explore, visitors might even spot whales and seals offshore, as well as enjoying remarkable views spreading north to the volcanic peaks of Assynt. Don’t forget to pop in to Gairloch Museum, which opened its new residence in 2019, for a glimpse into the rich local history.

The Badachro Inn is a unique bar/restaurant located in a sheltered bay on the South side of spectacular Loch Gairloch, looking across the bay to Isle Horrisdale.

If fresh seafood is your thing, you’ll love the food here, with freshly caught sole, haddock, langoustines, scallops, cod, salmon and monkfish all frequently making an appearance on the menu.

Whilst you’re in Gairloch, The Old Inn boasts its own smokehouse and delicatessen and have a magnificent selection of Scottish Malts and Gins. Again, the seafood if caught daily and delivered from the local harbour.

Applecross Inn

Situated on Shore Street, on the rural-remote Applecross peninsula, in the North West Highlands, the Applecross Inn boasts lovely views across the Inner Sound of Raasay, to the isles of Raasay and Skye.

Famous for its quality, multiple award-winning, dining and bar, the Inn’s great range of delicious fresh meals are well worth the journey here. Specialising in local produce, including seafood and highland game and meats. 

Offering the ultimate seaside experience, Applecross Inn-Side Out is a retro-inspired food truck.  Situated on the shore opposite the Inn, this quality take-away addition to the Applecross Inn has proved tremendously popular.
