In the classically spread-out Highland village of Gairloch, with its complex coastline that is both rocky and sandy by turn, sits Na Mara Restaurant. Here the emphasis is on produce sourced as locally as possible, including beef and game, and local seafood suppliers bring in scallops, mussels and creel-caught prawns, depending on the daily catch. Provenance is clearly important to proprietors Stuart and Flo, as the menu proudly offers Beauly wild boar burger, Highland estate venison, Isle of Ewe smoked salmon and hand-dived scallops from the Western Isles, among many others. With picture-postcard views across Loch Gairloch and over to Badachro, diners might even spot porpoises, whales, seals, dolphins and a variety of seabirds over dinner.
