I was visitng Glasgow and staying with friends for a few days in July 2013 - last week, to be exact.
One of my friends works for the Scottish Forestry Commission, we we took a lovely drive with nice hikes near Portavadie Marina. We stopped for lunch at the Oystercatcher, an hour and a half from Glasgow , one of their favorite restaurants.
On the eastern shore of Loch Fyne, I had to order the local oysters ( Ballimore Oysters £1.50
Local Ballimore Oysters naturally seasoned by Loch Fyne - min order 3 oysters) and the mussels (Loch Linnhe Mussels £6.00 for lunch, £11.00 dinner - In garlic & white wine sauce.
My friends had salads and trhe small children and the batter of the fish and all the chips. :-)
The oysters were fabulous, the mussels - best I have ever had. A wonderful creamy texture and flavour.
You can sit outside - it was a gorgeous warm summer day - there was a heat wave going on last week or inside. We sat outside and had a great walk along the pretty shore.
Highly recommend a drive on the Argyll Secret Coast, stopping here for lunch! After lunch we said goodby to May the friendly lab - who was having his post-lunch nap.
