A venue near Oban has been named Inn of the Year at the Scottish Hotel Awards.
The Taynuilt: Etive Restaurant with Rooms triumphed over stellar competition pipping three four-star venues to the post.
Vivien Devlin, chairwoman of the panel of judges for the 2017 awards said: “This 400 year old village pub has been reimagined into a destination restaurant: Bedrooms, named after Scottish lochs, have a vintage look with welcome treats: tea, coffee, gin, whisky, chocolates.
“Under Chef Patron John McNulty, the kitchen team has a butchery, fish smokery, and forage for wild garlic and herbs.
“The dinner menu highlights fine local produce: Isle of Skye scallops, lamb, poached rhubarb, cheese. Located a few miles north of Oban, stay here before taking a ferry to explore the Hebridean Islands.”
