Another Gourmet Night Success

The Arduaine Restaurant was full to capacity for the second Loch Melfort Gourmet food and wine matching night on 6 March 2010. Colin and the kitchen team pulled out all the stops to produce a delicious menu and Mike Cottam from Inverarity Wines entertained and educated with his eloquent words about fine wine.

This event is so popular that we hope to go to 3 events a year. Dates to follow, but the next one is likely to be in October.
