After seeing many positive reviews in the guest book of our cottage and a simple business card left on the shelf we decided we’d give it a go, despite its remoteness! We visited on a Wednesday night at 6.30 after making a reservation and being...More

£45 seemed like a lot to spend per head in this part of the world, but eating at the White House would have been worth twice, three times that price. The food - all inspired by and sourced from the Highland and Islands - was...More

What a great meal we had at the Whitehouse, one of my favorite places to eat whilst on holiday. The choices on the new style taster menu were superb and it was hard trying to decide what to leave out... this did result in eating...More

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.
