Innes Street, PLOCKTON, IV52 8TW
Located in Plockton which is on Loch Carron in the West Highlands, this inn is owned and run by Mary Gollan, her brother Kenny and his partner Susan Trowbridge. The Gollans were born and bred in the village and it was actually their great-grandfather who built the attractive stone free house as a manse. The beautiful views can be enjoyed from seats on the decking outside. The ladies double up in the role of chef, while Kenny manages the bar, where you'll find winter fires, Plockton real ales from the village brewery, and a selection of over 50 malt whiskies. A meal in the reasonably formal Dining Room or more relaxed Lounge Bar is a must, with a wealth of freshly caught local fish and shellfish, West Highland beef, lamb, game and home-made vegetarian dishes on the menu, plus daily specials. The Plockton prawns (called langoustines here), which Martin the barman catches in the sea loch, are taken to Kenny's smokehouse to the rear of the building to be cured along with other seafood - the results can be sampled in the seafood platter starter. Other starters include moules marinière; haggis and clapshot; and fish soup of the day. Among the main dishes are hand-dived king scallops pan-fried with bacon and garlic; langoustines, served hot with garlic butter or cold with Marie Rose sauce; grilled fillets of plaice or sea bass with chive, pink peppercorn and lemon butter; and braised lamb shank with Guinness. Desserts include citrus pot, and Scottish cheeses served with Orkney oatcakes. The public bar is alive on Tuesdays and Thursdays with music from local musicians, who are often joined by youngsters from the National Centre of Excellence in Traditional Music in the village.
