Places To Eat & Drink
If you don’t fancy rustling something up in the cottages well equipped modern kitchen after a busy day exploring, then there are plenty of beautiful restaurants and quaint pubs close by.
The perfect coastline location means that there are an abundance of fine seafood restaurants to choose from. Just a 15 minute drive from Gardeners Cottage is the superb Lochleven Seafood Cafe. Spoilt by unspoilt and breathtaking views of the Loch, this family run restaurant and deli serves up the freshest, highest quality Scottish seafood – including oysters, scallops, lobster and a variety of non-seafood dishes.
Another favourite is the Holly Tree Restaurant in Argyll – with it’s floor to ceiling windows overlooking the magnificent Loch and real log fire set in the middle of the restaurant, this is definitely not one to be missed. With steaks from the charcoal grill and fresh local ingredients, there is something for everyone.
Just a stone’s throw away is The Laroch Restaurant. Serving a wide range of gastro pub food this is a real find for those wanting quality food set in a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere. The friendly staff will make you feel welcome and the hearty food will make sure you definitely return.
If it’s something a bit more low key you’re looking for, then the Castle Stalker View cafe near Oban is the perfect tea room for you to sit and relax whilst taking in the scenery. With everything from a proper full Scottish breakfast to gorgeous oozing cream cakes and an apple pie to die for, what more could you be looking for?
Some more favourites include The Crannog Seafood restaurant, The Loch Leven Hotel Restaurant, The Isles of Glencoe hotel restaurant, The Glencoe Gathering, Poppies Cafe and Gift shop near Oban. There are lots more close by in Fort William and Oban just waiting to be found.
