We visited for breakfast after checking out of our holiday cottage on a Saturday morning. We brought our well behaved dog who was welcomed. The food was fantastic and the staff were lovely. Nice interior which was spotlessly clean and a great sea view. I...More

It’s a bit like a house that someone knocked the walls out to make a pub/lounge/restaurant combo sort of thing, without being one or the other. Bar choice is strictly limited but ok, unsure if it improves for summer tourists? Food a bit limited but...More

Didn’t much appreciate your review . 2 stars indicates 1 step away from terrible. The Shieling isn’t a pub it’s a restaurant and lounge bar . Don’t want the pub trade as my customers wouldn’t appreciate the noise and dogs running around . There are...More

Had a magnificent lunch today- roast turkey with all the trimmings. And what a quantity, all beautifully cooked.

A really good anniversary lunch worth travelling for. The restaurant has a great outlook and the attached café is so comfortable with leather sofas and a mesmerising fish tank. Fine food, good service and a reasonable price.

A leap into the unknown as I was just passing by when the hunger pains started. A simple meal of minced meat and haggis pie topped with mashed potato with side vegetables hit the spot. Lovely meal,restaurant, staff and views. I couldn’t ask for more.

This restaurant was recommended. The atmosphere was pleasant with high ceilings and big windows. The service was extremely good. The problem was the food. It had absolutely no flavour. Also, the salmon was overcooked. A bit of a disappointment.
