“Simply brilliant”“head down the single track road until you are sure that you are on the wrong route, and then keep going another couple of miles” to find Pam Brunton and Rob Latimer’s converted fisherman’s croft: “one of the more unlikely locations for top-class dining”. The white-walled room with small bare tables is very simple in style, but the food is “as delicious as it can be surprising” with a “a fierce focus on invention with local produce and foraged ingredients” (and especially, of course, fish and seafood). A “funky wine list” is also a feature with “a strong focus on organic and biodynamic wines”. “It’s a great location and with lovely bothies now” too.

In a fisherman’s croft on Loch Fyne, this “idyllic” Nordic-inflected dining room is “a Scottish hidden gem”, its “clever” food drawing on the local larder. “Now with (luxe) overnight bothies”, the odd cynic feels that it’s become “just another destination place”, but others will love the excuse to stay on for the fabulous breakfast baskets.

On the Cowal Peninsula beside the shores of Loch Fyne, Pam Brunton and Rob Latimer’s waterside dining room (once known as Inver Cottage) again inspires ecstatic feedback for its Nordic-style cuisine and “romantic” setting.

Taken over and rebaptised by Pam Brunton & Rob Latimer in 2015, this “cool” dining room wins raves for its “bold”-going-on-“extraordinary” new-Nordic-style cuisine – “inspired and novel” while avoiding fine-dining-style “death by foam!”. “It’s a long, long way to drive” – being “out-of-the-way on the gorgeous Cowal Peninsula” – but the pay-off includes “beautiful views”.
