Review on Coll Hotel, The Gannet Restaurant
It's been said that Coll is a bit like the Caribbean without the throngs of people and the palm trees. The local hotel takes full advantage of its idyllic setting and there's a beautiful garden overlooking the row of whitewashed harbourside cottages (a midge-removing machine makes the experience even more enjoyable!)
If you are feeling peckish, you can order something light at the bar or sample the full works in the casual Gannets Restaurant. There are no flights of fancy on the menu, just straightforward dishes based around decent Scottish produce. You could begin with Inverawe smoked venison and mulled pears or seared local scallops in garlic butter with crispy Parma ham, before proceeding to Argyll lamb cutlets with mint butter and ratatouille or fillet of roast cod with a herb and Mediterranean crust on an Italian bean casserole.
Vegetarians are well served with some colourful options, while the line-up of 'happy endings' might feature traditional cranachan with shortbread or chocolate and almond torte with bitter chocolate sauce.
