"Walking, eating, sightseeing and relaxing. Wonderful!"  


Eating out

We can't mention every restaurant, cafe or hotel that serves food in the Kyle of Lochalsh area, there are just too many, so we have picked a few we like ourselves. You may notice a leaning towards home baking but we all have our faults!!


The Glenelg Inn

Your "local" for your holiday in Glenelg! Only a two minute walk from The Lodge, the Inn serves evening meals, lunches and all day coffees. Nice atmosphere with a log fire and beer garden.

Way Out West Cafe

At the Ferry Shore StationGlen Beag. Open Tuesday to Sunday, teas, really nice coffees and a variety of baking using home grown produce.


The Clachan Bar

Over the hill and on the way to Kyle, (turn right just after Eilean Donan Castle) with a large and varied menu of excellent "pub grub". The Clachan can be very busy in season and sometimes they can't take bookings so arrive early!

Kyle of Lochalsh:

Hector's Bothy A great lunch spot in Kyle, right by the car park and usually very busy but for Jacket Potatoes, Battered Haddock, Scampi, Toasties or just some home made soup and a roll to keep you going it's ideal. Also Hector's 2 Go if you want to eat on the move.


It's 55 miles from Glenelg, the steep single track road over the Bealach na Bà is the longest ascent in the UK and the drop offs and hairpin bends as you head over the mountain pass may make you wonder if it's worth it but Applecross has two absolute gems for food lovers. The Applecross Inn, multiple award-winning Inn on the shore, great for seafood, very affordable, we just can't fault it. Also, The Applecross Walled Garden, local lamb, beef and venison plus salads and veg from the Applecross Walled Garden. We also think the home baking is some of the best in Scotland! They were both featured regularly on "Monty Halls Great Escape". All the way to Applecross and back you will also see some of the most amazing scenery Scotland has to offer. It's a superb day out and we would recommend it to anyone.


Plockton Shores Restaurant Why can't more chefs do "flavours" like this? The "Plockton Shores" are just that little bit more inventive with their menu. Home baked bread, locally caught shellfish, local cheeses, plus light lunches and of course home baking!


Kishorn Seafood Bar You will find just about anything that can be caught or picked around the Scottish shores is available. Then it's smoked, pickled, grilled or simply served fresh. The Guardian had an article on the "10 top places to eat by the sea in the UK." The Kishorn Seafood Bar is at number one.


On the Elgol road from Broadford is the village of Torrin and you will find Amy's Place. Great stop if you have been on the walks to Boreraig and Suisnish or even hill walking up Blaven. Home made cakes galore!!! Also soups and you guessed it......... even more home made cakes!! If you sit outside there are cracking views across Loch Slapin to Blaven.


The Cafe Sia is a perfect lunch stop with a good menu variety, frequent specials of local seafoods and a speciality of wood-fired "pick your own topping" pizzas! They also do really nice coffee (roasted in house) and home baking!!
