We were delighted to be one of the first hotels in Scotland, and potentially the first in Argyll, visited by VisitScotland last Wednesday and awarded a Pass, under their new “Taste our Best” scheme. A new 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.


“We know that visitors love authentic, quality Scottish food and drink and Taste Our Best is all about taking this knowledge to the next level and really encouraging the tourism industry to recognise the real benefits of sourcing, using and promoting local produce. We have such a rich natural larder here in Scotland with some of the best products in the world right on our doorstep”.

Riddell Graham, Director of Partnerships at VisitScotland

Known for our seafood, Loch Melfort Hotel always strives to use the local catch of the day wherever possible. This is best showcased in our seafood platters;

Tarbert Landed Lobster (Hot or Cold), Clachan Seil Oysters,

Loch Fyne Langoustines (Hot or Cold), Tarbert Crab Claws,

West Coast Mussels, West Coast Scallops Meuniere

Our accompanying seasonal vegetables and leaves are locally sourced from Ardfern Organics or West Barravullin Farm a few miles south of Arduaine.
