Top restaurant recommendations from locals

Bar
“If you fancy a day trip The George at Inverary is an excellent traditional pub to try. You can do a round trip by getting the ferry across to Tarbert and coming back via the main road. It's about an hours drive away and a fabulous stop off for lunch.”

Seafood Restaurant

“Great restaurant for lunch, cafe next door, good shop, great garden centre, secret walk up the back to a double storey tree house. Take a capuccino and walk through the tiny graveyard, follow the track for 15 minutes, sit on the bench or up the tree house. Stunning. ”

“It is only 4 miles away by road, and directly across the loch if you arrived by boat. Moor at the Pier below Lochawe Station. Totally revamped last year, great views, good bar and food (inside and out on good days)”

“Amazing curries to take home and heat up. It's a bit of a trek from Oban but if you are on a drive out this way these are worth a detour!”
