In 1989 fisherman Finlay Finlayson fulfilled his dream by transforming the little building on Fort William’s Town Pier into a seafood restaurant. The building, once used as a lookout point during World War 2, was used as a bait shed until the conversion. Here are a few photos of Finlay and his wife Lorna with construction in progress.
Crannog Restaurant has now been serving meals to locals and tourists in Fort William for 25 years and this is how our unique building looks today!
The restaurant prides itself in sourcing the finest ingredients from the waters around the West Coast of Scotland.
