When you have been exploring the best of the Scottish Highlands all day it is not hard to build up a mountainous appetite. That is when you should make tracks for The Stables. The food is generous and unpretentious but firmly rooted in a commitment to serve the best of local produce. Take the famous Torridon burger for example, created from cuts from The Torridon’s own Highland herd.
This is undoubtedly the best burger I have ever tasted in Scotland – Neil MacLean former restaurant critic The Sunday Times.
There is a superb mixed grill with succulent lamb, gammon, steak, sausages and Stornoway black pudding, a real treat. Still on a meaty theme, The Torridon sources its venison from local resorts.
Great fish pie and steak pie, very filling but just what’s needed after a day in the hills! TripAdvisor review for The Stables
Seafood is landed at nearby Gairloch. Scallops are flash cooked and served with fresh salad and a pea puree. The Stables’s fish and chips features an a astonishing crispy-coated leviathan of a fish which spills out over the edge of the dinner plate.
Though they have already eaten very well, few diners at The Stables refuse dessert with a delicious sticky toffy pudding first choice for many. If you crave great food in the Scottish Highlands at great prices, make tracks for The Stables.
