Places to Eat
The islands have a long tradition of crofting and fishing spanning 100s of years. Food would come largely from the fertile land alongside the machair where crops could be grown and sheep & cattle could graze. Fish and shellfish abound and you will be hard pushed to find any that compares elsewhere.
Today, both top-class restaurant chefs and home-taught enthusiasts will seek your approval of both traditional food and drink, together with modern variations of the recipes. There’s a wide range of traditional and contemporary places to find food and drink on the islands. Look out for hotels, restaurants, tiny tea-shops, community centre cafes and takeaways.
