We are committed to local sustainable production and we want to know where our food comes from and how it is produced. This has been something of a journey and along the way we have discovered and procured some wonderful produce, grown and prepared by kindred spirits who reside mainly in Scotland and close to Loch Melfort.

Taste our Best‘ scheme. This scheme is a joint initiative between VisitScotland and The Scottish Government, with support from Scotland Food and Drink, to promote properties with over 40% of the ingredients sourced locally.
