Welcome to The Seafood Trail


Its meandering route, through some of the most spectacular coastal scenery Scotland has to offer, enables seafoodies to sample, share and enjoy seafood and shellfish from a wide variety of waterfront establishments. From the freshest of crab rolls served with a squeeze of lemon and some home-made mayonnaise, to Michelin rated menus that feature a wide range of timestakingly prepared dishes, visitors to our Seafood Trail are assured a warm welcome and an eating experience that values freshness and flair above all else.

What makes our Seafood Trail so refreshingly alive is the people who have created it. United by a common vision of showcasing the best of local produce simply because it is so fabulously good, many have taken huge risks to establish a  standard of seafood cuisine that others might consider 'unnecessary' for such a rural part of Scotland. All of them believe that a crucial part of any vacational experience is the atmosphere surrounding the food that we eat on our travels. Building strong relationships with local suppliers is the underlying ethos of all those involved - no-one is in any doubt that the real heroes of the seafood trail are the fishermen who deliver the raw produce to their door.

So if you're a lover of seafood and shellfish, enjoy the rugged and unspoiled coastline of mid Argyll and value the efforts of those involved in Scotland's fishing industry, why not spend some time exploring the people, the places and the produce that is The Seafood Trail.

The Seafood Trail was featured on BBC's Landward programme.
