Scottish wild food in simple lochside surroundings

The isolated spot on the shore of Loch Fyne is the first plank of Inver's campaign of seduction. It isn't in the slightest bit grand as a venue, but the idyllic and wild setting are a good preparation for some trend-conscious cooking that showcases wild and regional produce in contemporary style. At simple little wood tables, with bench seating around the walls, the Scandinavian inspiration (Pam Brunton did a stint at Copenhagen's Noma) is plain to see, and the food is full of sharp-edged, enlivening flavours. Appetise yourself with shellfish from nearby lochs – perhaps Otterferry oysters and horseradish – before an opener such as fried fennel and smoked cod's roe sprinkled with dill salt leads into one of the larger dishes like confit duck leg with fermented cabbage and lemon thyme, or Gigha halibut in smoky mussel butter with monk's beard. Desserts are straight out of the Nordic canon, with rye doughnuts, bone marrow caramel and wild pepper ice cream among the enticements. The fixed-price taster looks a cinch, but must be booked in advance.
