Eating Out

Callanish House Bed & Breakfast is situated in the village of Arrochar on the A83 on the West cost of Scotland. We have a number of places to eat close by, to enjoy eating out in Loch Lomond

Inverbeg Inn,Inverbeg

inverbegFish lovers will love our eat-in and take-away fish restaurant. All of the fish we serve is prepared daily. In sourcing our fish we remain true to our principles of fresh, sustainable fish, simply prepared, locally caught, where possible, and fairly priced. Our menu changes regularly, because the catch usually does.

Choose from Scottish favourites like haddock, cod and coley to more exotic delicacies such as West Coast oysters, squid, langoustines and steamed mussels or try our delicious cullin skink with fresh soda bread, thai-style fish curry or Tempura Tiger Prawns. But it’s not all about fish; we have a great selection of meat dishes from the grill too…Buccleuch steak burgers, Buccleuch sirloin steaks and grilled game sausages.

And for accompaniments we don’t stop at scrumptious hand-cut chips and mushy peas (well what else would you expect with our famous fish tea). You can also try potato scallops, seasonal salads like wild rocket and parmesan and chunky crispy onion rings, perfect with our fabulous steaks

The Drovers Inn

droversThe Drovers accommodation is, shall it be said, not based on your standard hotel bedroom. It reflects the tradition and history of the building and replicates the ambience of the downstairs areas but no two are in any other way similar.

With a mix of styles, décor and facilities it is the Inn’s contention that staying in The Drovers’ should be as much of an “experience” as eating and drinking is! There are a mix of standard rooms and en suite twin, double and family rooms.

The George Hotel & Pub

georgeThe George has always had an enviable reputation for ambience, friendliness and its cuisine. With its original solid stone flagstoned floors and four roaring log and peat fires, the George is a lively haunt for both local characters and visitors alike with a wide choice of real ales, 100 malt whiskies and an extensive wine list. It deservedly earns its place in the good pub guide and the good beer guide.

The emphasis on the menu is using the very best of local quality, well hung West Highland beef and lamb. Seafood and fish bought from the local fishing port of Tarbert and the famous Loch Fyne salmon. These ingredients are used imaginatively and simply to produce well cooked meals at a fair and reasonable price.
