Eating out in the Northern Highlands

Lochinver is known by foodies across the land and for very good reason. The rest of the Highlands is bountiful in local produce and fresh seafood. You don’t have to find a posh restaurant to enjoy this either, local tearooms often make all their own soups, bread, cakes and more.
