So who would know? We sail all round the Western Isles and revisit this restaurant after several years. Food has changed and for the better. Emphasis on fresh local food is a good start. Add in a limited menu if two starters, two mains and...More

At the back of beyond we happened across an amazing restaurant. Just about the best that is offered anywhere. A complete commitment to being exciting and good. Beautifully prepared and presented. Scared to go back in case it's not quite so wonderful.

This was the second time that we had been this year for their taster menu and it was just outstanding. The plates are a work of art and they taste just as good. This is by far the best restaurant in the area with fantastic...More

We made a special trip from Oban to have dinner here since we enjoyed a superb meal here last year. But upon our return we found that the menu has now been replaced by a taster menu. 4 starter-like portions for £45 a head or...More

Went to here tonight, had the sample menu.. not enough to eat on the plate for the price we paid. Had to go back to our hotel and order another dinner. Food good but not worth the money.

Wow, what a great little place to eat. The quality of the food is superb. I'm no food critic by any means but this place clearly is a cut above. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming and the kitchen banter is relaxed with no yelling...More

We made the trip from Kilberry via Mull especially to visit The Whitehouse, following the reading of glowing reviews. Although the atmosphere could have been improved by the presence of more diners, the set menu could not easily have been improved upon. The service was...More

I am not usually a fan of fine dining, as I usually find the atmosphere intimidating and I leave hungry. However, the Whitehouse has a very informal feel to it, and as long as you follow the waitress recommendations of having at least four courses,...More

Description
The Whitehouse Restaurant in Lochaline makes the most of the West Coast larder on our doorstep. Lochaline langoustines and Sound of Mull dived scallops and crab are regulars, as are Seared Morvern stag's liver, heart and kidney with Tobermory whisky, lamb, mutton, beef and pork from local farmers. Our garden grows most of the herbs, salads and vegetables on the menu. Highland delicacies are foraged from hill and shore. We love celebrating Scottish food and drink - our fabulous local harvest served in a relaxed, informal atmosphere. The Lochaber environment is among the richest in Scotland. Our food puts it on your plate.
