Zip past on the scenic road down to Kintyre and you could be forgiven for thinking that this is just another cute whitewashed cottage. Think again as this culinary oasis has won a string of awards as well as receiving Bib Gourmand recognition by Michelin. Local produce is key, well it should be with such high quality seafood and red meat all around. The mini leg of lamb comes roasted with ‘petit pois a la française’ and is straight from the nearby Ormsary Estate. The cooking nods to France but always stays defiantly local with the likes of Isle of Bute rose veal rump pan-roasted with shallots, pancetta and pavé potatoes. Seafood features heavily too with a local bounty of lobster, scallops and langoustines frequent stars on the menu. Desserts steer towards the safe comforting variety with baked cheesecake with boozy berries the perfect way to end off an equally satisfying meal at this remote, cosy rural oasis. If you have been boozy beyond the berries they have a quintet of rooms too as snug as the restaurant and its log fire.
