Overview

Ranging from Oban to Tarbert, Scotland's Seafood Trail encompasses some of Britain's most glorious coastline. Here the cold, clear Atlantic waters caress the sealochs and inlets of Argyll and Kintyre creating the perfect environment for seafood in all its variety.

This relatively unexplored coastline has been undergoing something of a culinary revolution over the past decade and is now a showcase for all that is best in Scottish seafood. The ten establishments featured in this beautifully illustrated book all serve simple food, simply served. Langoustines, crab, scallops, oysters, and mussels all have such wonderful flavors that they require only the minimum of additional ingredients. And behind each place, there's a story and some interesting characters who have put their heart, soul (and wallet) into it!
