We chose to eat here on the recommendation of our friends, and we were not disappointed. Although the bar was quiet, we felt at home, and the food was to a good standard and good value.

Excellent secluded hotel. Easy accesable from ferry terminal, plenty of parking space. It has a private airstrip available for a few small planes to land.

At the Glenforsa the attitude to food is one of simplicity. Good food, cooked well and presented in comfortable surroundings - not forgetting quality wines!The food is mainly seasonal and the Glenforsa try to utilise the best that Scotland has to offer, whether it be Venison from Mull or Scallops from Tobermory, aiming to give customers an authentic taste of good, local food.
