At Crannog, the seafood we serve is sourced mainly from the West Coast of Scotland; we aim to serve seafood from as local a source as possible. We regularly have mussels, langoustines, scallops and clams along with crab claws and lobster served on our daily specials. Our langoustines have historically been fished here in Loch Linnhe or Outer Loch Linnhe; more recently large, succulent langoustines have been landed at the nearby harbour of Mallaig and brought to Crannog to be served at the restaurant in the space of a few hours.
Just a few miles away our mussels are bought from a local farm in Loch Eil. If sea conditions are difficult we travel a wee bit further to get supplies from Glencoe, Mull or Arisaig.
This summer our Mallaig fishermen are already nearing their fishing quotas for monkfish and cod. Once the quota has been caught the fishermen are no longer allowed to sell them so Crannog will be looking elsewhere for these fish. The East Coast fishermen at Peterhead or Scrabster are equally good suppliers.
Our lobster comes from Eigg and scallops come from around the island of Islay, complementing our full array of seafood and ensuring our guests are provided with the finest, freshest, locally sourced produce that makes Crannog so special.
If you have any questions about our seafood and where it comes from leave a comment and one of our chefs will be delighted to get back to you!
