On the road to Kilchoan is Knoydart River Cottage, a beautiful bed and breakfast that offer meals to non residents on a couple of evenings a week. Booking essential.


Another bed and breakfast that offers meals is The Gathering. They are open to non-residents every day of the week and offer lunches and evening meals. Their restaurant is called The Lookout.

At Doune, located between Inverie and Airor, there is an excellent restaurant, but you have to walk to get to it, or go in by boat. However it's worth it and the return journey, up the hill, settles the stomach.
