    It is very good Al, but the SHABBAZ on Chapel St, Aberdeen beats it, been going there for 20 yrs or so and it's standards have never slipped

    Sabor Criollo, Stockbridge Edinburgh....

    Latin American food with a very Latin flavour to the setting. Owned and run by Mohammid and Mercedes, staffed by Columbian waitresses and a Cuban chef.

    Great food, leave the bikes at home Mo doesn`t need much of an excuse to get the Tequila flowing and the price is good too. Evenings only...

    Stockbridge has quite a few good eateries and loads of pubs and only a few minutes walk from the centre so if your nipping into Edinburgh thats the place to go.

    If Chinese foods yer thing then Sam`s near Castlegate in Aberdeen is a must and if your into wine he has a private collection downstairs thats reserved only for those who ask
    Sam himself is the front man and he`s good crack, foods amazing and fresh, all his chefs are Hong Kong Chinese(family mostly) and are passionately proud of their product.

    After our flying tour of the West Highlands last weekend we can vouche for The Arch Inn, Ullapool, top quality food and atmosphere...
    www.thearchinn.co.uk

    We stayed at the Riverside Guesthouse which was great value, great hospitality, clean and great breakfast with the best black pudding I've had in years...

    Cheers GC in your absence...

    I'd like to put in a vote for the Crask Inn about 15 miles north of Lairg in Sutherland.

    Had a great evening there on Monday after a delightful couple of days riding in the sun. It isn't a 4 star hotel but is all the better for that. Quirky with lots of character and run by a lovely couple that also farm the local land. Dinner was excellent (all local produce) as was the next day's 3 course breakfast. Great value too at £40 for dinner, B&B.

    Well worth planning a trip around. I know that I'll be back.

    Thumbs up The Townhead Cafe, Borders/Biggar.

    We work up-north loads & use the A702 short cut (M74/Edinburgh), Great road. The chippy in Biggar has always been a fav' stopping place for us, as you can sit in, takeaway or even just pickup a decent brew.

    It's called "The Townhead Café" in the Border town of Biggar & was crowned the UK’s best fish and chip shop 2007.

    I've always enjoyed the food, try it & see what you think. Nab.

Mind you, it is just as spectacular when a winter south westerly gale is bending the windows (and I'm not joking!).

    Pricey, but an enjoyable experience.

    Spent five days based in Oban, came back on Sunday. The Seafood Temple, by the Yacht Club, was a real top quality fish / seafood restaurant.
    Local food, caught by local fishermen for local people. 10 /10
    Thought Trip Advisor would probably be a fair guide to it.

    The other two we tried were Room no 9 and Coast, but weren't a patch on TST

    Must agree with this. McLarens is the boys. They also have a shop at the Cross.
    Keep away from Saddlers 'tho. Their's are sh... Not so good.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in one pretty and preserved piece, but to slide across the line broadside, thoroughly used up, worn out, leaking oil, shouting GERONIMO!!!

    Falstone Community Cafe

    Not strictly Scotland but as near as damn it and likely to be useful for anyone coming up here via Kielder and the Borders which is a cracking road.

    The village of Falstone is a few miles south of Kielder. You have to turn off the road for a wee bit but the detour is well worth while. Freshly home made grub and excellent friendly service. Try the scrambled eggs on toasted muffin.

    Bloody good food, we've been a few times now. Lots of seafood and local meat.

    No piccies on Craggan website, but c'mon, it's Sutherland...of course it's bloody nice!
