This review is taken from the 2011 edition.
A simple roadside cafe serving fresh lobster, home-made Cullen skink and dressed crab.
The setting may be an unassuming blink-and-you-miss-it cabin by the side of the lost, lonely road around Loch Carron, but the seafood here is as spectacular as any of the epic scenery of Wester Ross. Sourcing is key. They don’t need to trot out the names of wholesalers as they are often on first-name terms with the characters who caught the plump langoustines, chunky king scallops and baseball-size oysters. Seafood platters, heaving with lobster, squat lobster tails, mussels, crab, langoustines and scallops, are perhaps the best value in Scotland, while the unusual signature dish of scallops with a croissant and garlic butter is a delicious snack if you are in a hurry passing by. But you should never pass by without stopping. To do that would be to miss out on one of the best-value, most honest seafood experiences in Scotland.
