Food and drink on board
Beautifully prepared meals from the best local produce from land and sea on the west coast of Scotland
Dining on board our vessels is informal and friendly with meals served at the communal table in the deck saloon. The menu is freshly prepared each day to a very high standard by the onboard Chef. The west coast of Scotland is famed for its fish, shellfish, lamb, beef and venison as well as speciality produce such as cheeses and preserves.
Our four Chefs for 2018 are Margareta Wiklund, Steve Boswell, Gordon Howe and Carleton Smith. Here is a taste of the kind of dishes that they create "gourmet gallery"!
Each meal is generally served at anchor in a new idyllic location, carefully chosen by your Skipper, although occasionally you may dine while en route. Breakfast is served between 8am - 9am, lunch is around 1pm, afternoon tea is served at around 4pm and dinner at 7.30pm. These times may alter a little depending on the cruise itinerarary. There is a new set menu each day but individual food tastes and dietary requirements are catered for.
Teas, coffees, soft drinks, fruit and snacks are available all day. House wine is provided free with dinner. Under the guidance of Master Sommelier Nigel Wilkinson we have selected new house wines for our 2018 cruisiing season.

Les Oliviers Sauvignon Blanc – Vermentino 2016, France
Percheron Chenin Blanc- Viognier 2017, South Africa

The boat has a well-stocked bar and drinks from the bar are the only item you will be asked to pay for throughout your cruise.
