Eating Out/Transportation

Listed below are a number of local restaurants that can be personally recommended.

Private hire car is available to transport guests to local restaurants. These rates below are the total price in total for up to 6 persons. Booking as far in advance as possible is recommended to avoid disappointment and having to pay for a more expensive regular Oban taxi. Please contact Mr Robertson on 07584 177132 to make a booking.

ISLE OF ERISKA HOTEL AND SPA

Isle of Eriska, by OBAN, 01631 720371
A wonderful award winning five star gold hotel offering a table d’hote and a tasting menu. (This is my favourite place to dine for a special occasion.) I can offer a transportation package to and from Eriska so booking directly with Ardtorna is recommended.
