At Eddrachilles our culinary approach is to provide a "taste of the north", a delicious combination of Scottish ingredients, classic skills and contemporary techniques. Our local Highland larder provides us with shellfish caught in the Bay which borders the hotel’s garden, hogget and pigs from local crofts and game from the surrounding moors as well as plants foraged from our woods.
In the evenings the hotel’s restaurant is open to both resident and non-resident guests.. The restaurant has the original stone walls and flagstone floors from the 1800s. We are proud to serve our food on Highland Stoneware's Ledmore range, each item individually crafted in nearby Lochinver, and featuring ground golden Ledmore marble from the NW Highlands Geopark in the glaze..
Our food is prepared from fresh and, where possible, local ingredients by our chefs. For dinner we offer a table d’hôte menu which changes each day. You may choose either a two or three course option; both include home made bread, an intermezzo, and tea or coffee with hand-made chocolates..
The table d’hôte menu usually includes three starter options (one of which will be vegetarian), four main options (one meat or game, one seafood/fish, one vegetarian, and a special), and three desserts or Northern Highlands cheese plate.
On busy nights we have three sittings for dinner, at 6pm, 7pm and 8pm. Later dinners can be requested and should your journey be delayed we will be happy to provide a late supper.. Reservations for dinner are recommended for non-residents.
Cooking with fresh ingredients, our chefs are able to adapt and tailor dishes for guests who may have allergies or special diets.. However, our remote location means that all supplies have to be ordered well in advance. If you do have allergies or any dietary restrictions, please advise us as soon as practical.
Our chefs will develop tempting menus for any guests under 12 years old, entirely tailored to their individual tastes.
Our generous Highland breakfast has a buffet selection of fresh fruit, compotes yoghurts and cereals while a choice of hot dishes are cooked to order. All accompanied by a selection of Brodies' teas, Glen Lyon coffee, breads, locally made marmalade and a selection of preserves. Breakfast is served in the Restaurant from 7.45 am until 9.15 am.
Early breakfasts based on the buffet selection can be arranged for hillwalkers, bird watchers and other intrepid guests.
We take our Highland Hospitality seriously at Eddrachilles.
Every afternoon at around 4pm we serve a selection of cake, scones with jam and cream, and tray-bakes. These are usually placed in the conservatory for our resident guests to help themselves free of charge. You're on holiday so enjoy...although there's some debate about Fiona's claim that afternoon cakes are calorie free!
Tea and standard coffees are served free of charge to our resident guests in the lounges throughout the day and in the evenings until 10pm. And there's always fresh fruit and a plate of Tunnocks' Teacakes and Caramel Biscuits in reception.
We are committed to serving quality Scottish produce. Our preference is to source from within the NW Highlands Geopark and then from the wider Northern Highlands where possible.
