The Albannach was awarded a Michelin star in 2009, one of the food industry's highest awards, and has retained the accolade for each of the subsequent years.
In the 2009 Michelin Guide, The Albannach is described as: "An excellent restaurant that stands out in its local area. The food is prepared with care, understanding and skill, using good quality ingredients."
Both dinner and breakfast are prepared by the chef/owners.
Prime white fish and shellfish are caught and landed in Ullapool and Lochinver or dived for by friends; organic vegetables and free-range eggs are produced by local crofters for our table; a free-range farm in Morayshire supplies our beef and lamb, whilst game, other than barn-reared fowl, is wild and seasonal (Sample Menus)
Even our tableware is made by friend and neighbour David Grant at Highland Stoneware Pottery. A trip to Lochinver would be enhanced by a visit to his workshop and showroom.
