One of our favourites is Lucy's! Located at the very bottom of the hill and to your right along the main road. Not only do they have a fabulous savoury lunch menu, they are also a bakery with fresh bread every day. The pastries and cakes are not to be missed either!
Lucy's also has an eco friendly gift corner with shampoo and conditioner bars, soaps and artifacts from local artists.

Galley of Lorne
The Galley of Lorne is the local pub/restaurant and located at the bottom of the hill and to your right (across the road from Lucy's). Authentic old school pub with adjoining quieter lounge area looking out to Loch Craignish, with the added bonus of a beer garden.
Traditional pub menu is available as well as a la carte. For the whiskey lovers, they have a brilliant collection with 50 different whisky's from all ages including vintage bottles.

Tayvallich Inn is located in the picturesque village of Tayvallach, on the shores of Loch Sween (about 35 minute drive from the cottage). It's popular with holidaymakers, and particularly sailors. Tayvallach Inn is most famous for its wonderful locally caught seafood from the Sound of Jura!
Highly recommend the langoustines...
