What a great meal we had at the Whitehouse, one of my favorite places to eat whilst on holiday. The choices on the new style taster menu were superb and it was hard trying to decide what to leave out... this did result in eating...More

It is the end of the season in this part of the world so the restaurant was not very busy, so it is a credit to the owners and the staff that we had a fabulous lunch there today. They have a taster menu and...More

We were staying in a cottage at Rahoy about 30 minutes away from the Whitehouse. Lochaline is only a small village but to have a restaurant of this standard there is remarkable. We paid for the 4 course meal, although they gave us a curried...More

We only learned about the restaurant over dinner in Oban the previous evening. So the next day's sailing was planned so we could arrive in time for dinner. It is small, intimate and quirky (in a positive way). And it was full, so we were...More

Intimate, informal and friendly, this temple to gasronomy clearly has a strong following. Carefuly crafted Scottish delights, using local, natural ingredients in novel and interesting ways.

The Whitehouse was a pleasant surprise for us. It is a hidden treasure. A couple of the very view adverse reviews seem to have been written by people who were misled by the location into thinking this was pub type food. This is most definitely...More

We entered Loch Aline to await the tide before sailing west. The pontoon is inexpensive. On the wettest day in May, we were made welcome for lunch. Excellent service and food, ingenious and delicious cuisine. A very satisfactory lunch, and good value.

The Whitehouse Restaurant in Lochaline makes the most of the West Coast larder on our doorstep. Lochaline langoustines and Sound of Mull dived scallops and crab are regulars, as are Seared Morvern stag's liver, heart and kidney with Tobermory whisky, lamb, mutton, beef and pork from local farmers. Our garden grows most of the herbs, salads and vegetables on the menu. Highland delicacies are foraged from hill and shore. We love celebrating Scottish food and drink - our fabulous local harvest served in a relaxed, informal atmosphere. The Lochaber environment is among the richest in Scotland. Our food puts it on your plate.
