“Great for local seafood” - AA Inspector
ARINAGOUR, ARGYLL & BUTE
The Coll Hotel has some stunning views over the sea to Jura and Mull, and being the Isle of Coll’s only inn it is, naturally, the hub of the island community. Come here to mingle with the locals, soak in the atmosphere, and enjoy pints of Fyne Ale and malt whiskies. In the summer months the fabulous garden acts as an extension to the bar and the Gannet Restaurant; watch the yachts coming and going while enjoying a glass of Pimm's or something from the global wine selection. Fresh produce is landed and delivered from around the island every day and features on the specials board. Famed for its seafood, you’ll find it in dishes such as Inverawe smoked halibut; Hebridean seafood casserole; or locally caught pan-fried scallops with hazelnut butter, roasted cherry tomatoes, spinach and sauté potatoes. Among the non-fish options, try the Argyll venison fillet or sweet potato and chickpea Thai green curry.

About The area
Discover Argyll & Bute
This is a county that’s all about awe-inspiring landscapes and unique island cultures. Ex-Beatle Paul McCartney put the area on the map when he wrote Mull of Kintyre, recorded in 1977 with the local pipe band backing his group. Kintyre is a long, thin peninsula that points south from the mainland, sheltering the mouth of the Firth of Clyde from the open sea. It’s very nearly an island, with just a narrow isthmus connecting it with Knapdale, to the north.
Tucked away at the end of the Firth of Clyde, Bute has been the holiday playground for generations of Glaswegians and is home to some of the finest golden beaches anywhere on the west coast. It may not boast the wild mountain grandeur of some of Scotland’s other islands, but Bute is blessed with swathes of heathery moorland and a range of low, fertile hills, perfect for walking and studying the local wildlife. Such is the variety of landscapes that make up this county.
To experience the sights and sounds of the area, visit Dunoon in late August for the Cowal Highland Gathering, when more than 150 pipe bands from all over the world compete for prestigious trophies.
