Eating & Drinking
In the Bothy freezer, we try to have local uncooked venison from our area, seafood from the Luing fishermen and BBQ foods from Jacksons Butchers in Oban available for you to enjoy.
We also have locally made oven ready meals from the Island Kitchen on Luing that are created using as many locally grown and organic produce as possible, and can include venison casserole, shepherds pie, fish pie, sticky toffee pudding and fruit crumble plus we have custard!
The Atlantic Islands Centre (Tel: 01852 314096) in Cullipool serves lovely home made cakes from Luing Bakers, teas and coffee as well as lunch time soup, open sandwiches and paninis using breads from the award winning Luing Bakery and licensed early evening meals on a Saturday night.
