We recently returned to the Gille Brighde for the Sunday lunch-time opening. The Sunday set menu has limited choice, but we have never found this to be a problem. This time, chicken paté and cullen skink were good choices for our starters. The roast lamb...More

Went here for dinner with a 13 month old and a 4.5 year old. They were very welcoming and was great with kids. Food was superb both for the kids and adults. Would love to come back and I would highly recommend it to anyone!

Amanda and Aart Lastdragger run this small restaurant. Their welcome and delicious food was worth the visit. We were staying in Shieldaig and heard recommendations. We were not disappointed and will definitely again. All 6 of us enjoyed a wonderful lunch.
