The Steam Packet Inn

Harbour Row, ISLE OF WHITHORN, Newton Stewart, DG8 8LL

Personally run by the Scoular family for over 30 years, this lively quayside pub stands in a picturesque village at the tip of the Machars peninsula. Sit in one of the comfortable bars and enjoy a real ale, a malt whisky or a glass of wine. Glance out of the picture windows and watch the fishermen at work, then look to the menu to sample the fruits of their labours. Extensive seafood choices - perhaps salmon and fishcake kebabs, or smoked haddock fillet wrapped with black pudding and bacon - are supported by the likes of wild mushroom risotto and corn-fed chicken breast with haggis and mash.
