Review on Harbour Inn and Restaurant

Hard by the quayside in the little town of Bowmore, this sturdy white-painted hotel makes a great base for a stay on the Isle of Islay, with birdwatching, wildlife, fishing, walking and distillery tours just some of its attractions. Sit in the conservatory lounge and you can gaze out over Loch Idaal towards the Isle of Jura.

The hotel also boasts a fine modern restaurant with sophisticated décor and a menu that plunders Islay's larder to good effect. Fish (much of its from the local boats) steals the limelight, witness crab cakes, baked Gruinart oysters, Lagavulin scallops and a ragoût of seafood with white wine and saffron.

Alternatively, go for local meat or seasonal game – perhaps chicken and walnut terrine followed by smoked beef fillet on a rösti with wild mushroom sauce, and conclude with something like hazelnut and date steamed pudding or chocolate terrine. At lunchtime you can also get 'light bites' in the lounge and bar. There are Island malt whiskies aplenty and some decent wines to drink.
