Prices weren't cheap but overall offered... More

We dined at this restaurant the first night of our trip. The food was really good and the service was pleasant and efficient without feeling rushed. Pricing was reasonable and I would dine here again if I was in the area.

On the A828 from Ballachulich to Connel, the Holly Tree offers diners not only magnificent views across Loch Linnhe but also a comprehensive and reasonably priced menu. Special mention must be made of the generous-sized haddock, which must be amongst the best we have ever tasted.

We had a wonderful meal tonight at this seafood hotel. The view is unbeatable - right on the inlet to the loch. They had a fresh trout special that was perfection! We shared a scallop appetizer that was also fresh and delicious. Very nice presentation and excellent service. Highly recommend.

We were guests at the hotel. Food was great, setting and views over loch beautiful. Seafood platter was delicious and good value in comparison to other nearby restaurants. Special crab wonton starter was amazing! Staff were friendly, professional and attentive, will look forward to returning again soon!

I've eaten in The Holly Tree Seafood Restaurant three times now, and every time made me just want to come back. The waiter was charm personified, he made the whole visit absolutely lovely and special. So far I've just been enchanted by the whole place. It's warm, comfortable and so so classy! It's the sort of place where my parents... More
