Review on The Oyster Inn

Situated some five miles from Oban, the Oyster Inn is right at the heart of an area of outstanding natural beauty, with impressive views over Loch Etive and the Falls of Lora - where whirlpools and spectacular white water flow at the ebb and flood tides.

Built in the eighteenth century as a inn for travellers using the old Connel ferry to Mull, it is now a bar/restaurant with accommodation, including bunk-style budget rooms for groups. Seafood is top of the bill on the menu, which might offer West Coast mussels, home-cured gravlax, grilled salmon, and scallops in herb butter - plus haggis neeps 'n tatties, char-grilled Scotch steaks and traditional puds to finish.

Adjacent to the inn is the Ferryman's Bar (known to all as the Glue Pot), a genuine stone pub dealing in real ales, live music, log fires and honest grub from fish pie to bangers and mash.
