The Bothy Restaurant
Situated in an enormous steel barn, The Bothy (which means ‘shelter’ in Scottish) is a spectacle to behold. Lined with rough-hewn spruce logs, the arched building has a cavernous jet toned ceiling and a huge arched window elevation, designed to resemble a British railway station from the Victorian era.
But of course the real star of the show is an exactingly prepared menu, that takes its cues from Maritime and French influences. A mixture of locally harvested seafood, vegetables and greens conspire an exciting food offering. From fresh lobster dishes to moist halibut, and from Boeuf Bourguignon, to Bangers and Mash (a Scottish staple) the menu also includes vegetarian and vegan options, and what many have said is the province’s best chowder…
Spirit, the North Star* bar (set within The Bothy) serves cocktails, fine wines, spirits, a concise library of Scottish and Japanese whiskies and a selection of Irish whiskey. Gather at the bar, or settle on a leather sofa ahead of (or after) dinner. Or simply visit for a bottle of red wine and a delicious charcuterie board…
