Crinan is a very small remote town at the head of the Crinan Canal and one doesn't expect gourmet food here. The restaurant looks slightly simple with its pine panelling, but its position overlooking the lock gate and the little lighthouse could not be more marine. Before ordering we asked if the scallops had been freshly caught and whether the sea bass was fresh rather than farmed. Having been given assurances on both counts, we went ahead, and were rewarded with the best meal we had in our week in Scotland, absolutely deliciously fresh, cooked to perfection with no frills. The wine and the coffee were fine for their purpose, and the whole meal added up to a very engaging experience.
