Food on the Isle of Mull

The local produce on Mull represents the best of what the Hebrides can offer: free-range lamb, pork and beef, venison from the hill, lobster, langoustines, mussels, crab and many varieties of fish from the waters surrounding the islands, hand caught by local fisherman. We are fortunate to have the Crofters kitchen nearby at Kintra to provide fresh organic vegetables and local crofts supply venison, lamb, beef and pork.

The Mull & Iona Food Trail features around 30 producers; places to eat, farm shops and producer's markets which promote locally sourced food that tastes delicious, produced with respect for animal welfare and the environment.  The Island farmers and crofters produce slow-grown meat which features in the local restaurants along with seafood harvested locally. Local mussels, crab, langoustine, mackerel, skate, turbot and salmon can all appear on your plate.  Locally, we are fortunate to have a good choice of speciality produce.

Crofters Kitchen: In a stunning, sheltered location in nearby Kintra, the Crofters Kitchen is involved in vegetable and fruit provision and the selling of seasonal vegetables, eggs, meat, and other organic and eco-products. Preserves are also for sale. This is a great source of ingredients for your own cooking in the Achaban self-catering kitchen.

Ninth Wave Restaurant: Canadian Chef Carla meets Scottish Fisherman John to provide a fine dining experience. Advance booking essential

The Keel Row: This is the busy, bustling local pub and restaurant, a historic building full of locals as well as visitors. The menu has a good variety of choices with a focus on daily specials from local producers including seafood. The pub has a great selection of cask and keg beers and other drinks.

Seafood at the Pier: The Creel Seafood Bar is by the ferry terminal at Fionnphort serving freshly caught and cooked seafood, which is landed on the ferry pier by the owner and local suppliers.  An al fresco decking area with tables overlooking the Sound of Iona is the perfect place to enjoy which ever tasty catch of the day takes your fancy; crab, lobster, langoustines, scallops and fish – the real flavour of island life
