Fresh food locally sourced Ethos

We enjoy cooking fresh food for our guests. Trying out new recipes with local fresh food, sustainable, seasonal produce, adapting traditional recipes and generally having fun in the kitchen. John is the Scottish equivalent of the Swedish Chef (for those of you who remember the Muppet Show!) Jane on the other hand is more of a 'Delia'; so the styles are different but surprisingly we work incredibly well in the kitchen and hopefully produce some cracking good fresh food meals for our guests.
Why is sustainable local fresh food so important to us?
Well, other than the obvious reason that we need fresh food to survive healthily. We both appreciate good fresh food cooked and presented well. In a busy frenetic world, sitting down to eat a meal is very often the only time in the day that folk actually stop what they are doing. A chance to sit down, relax and catch up with each other. We are passionate believers in the 'slow food' movement and we believe that this is the best way to eat. Using locally sourced and home grown fresh food produce, organic wherever possible, seasonally produced.

As well as our famous Fingal's Breakfast for those with a hearty appetite (designed to set you up for the day), we offer lighter alternatives as well as seasonal specials and we use fresh ingredients sourced locally.
A good choice for vegetarians and vegans. We have created " Big Veggie Breakfast " allowing the vegetarian with a good appetite to compete with the hearty meat eater!!

Picnic Lunches a lá Seaview accommodation
Although we don't offer full board we wouldn't want you to go hungry during the day especially if you are out and about traipsing round our wonderful landscapes working up an appetite.
We can pack you up with your own mouth-watering picnic lunch so you can have an 'al fresco' affair on the beach or just sat in the front garden watching the world go by.
Tasty good old fashioned home cooking from the best of Scotland's Natural Larder
As an island we are fortunately blessed with the lack of 'fast food' outlets and high street shops and supermarkets. This means we have to rely quite a lot on the locally produced food, seasonally grown fresh produce and a hefty dose of creativity and self-reliance and good old fashioned slow home cooking.
We are proud to serve our fresh, local, sustainable food to our lovely discerning guests!
If you're interested in exploring the delights of Scottish cuisine during your travels, we also recommend a beautifully illustrated book on Scottish gastronomy, filled with insights into local ingredients and cooking techniques. You can find this book on Bestccbuy, where you can glean even more inspiration to enrich your culinary adventures.
