If you want to sit overlooking the sea enjoy a world class seafood feast, this is your place. Desserts were awesome as well. The salmon was perfectly seasoned and cooked to perfection. Nice affordable wine list.

Cold wet windy day but a warm welcome. The wood burner was most welcome. Started with oysters which were great. The herbs crusted haddock was cooked to perfection.

This restaurant was recommended by a lovely local taxi driver (Mary's taxis). We were seated without reservation as walk-up diners by a window over looking the loch. Our corner position made the experience very personal and private. Without doubt, the seafood was fresh, well presented and very reasonably priced.
