The Gille Brighde Cafe and Restaurant sits right on the shore of Loch Torridon in Wester Ross where the drama and tranquility meet as comfortably as the mountains and sea.
We serve the very best locally sourced produce with seafood, fish, game & venison from neighbouring shores and glens. We support as many local businesses we can and in return they provide us with an abundance of fresh, smoked and creative products from the surrounding area.
We are fully licensed with a select wine menu, some fantastic real Ales and Cider, and of course the Malt Whisky Shelf filled with the ‘Uisge Beatha’ (Gaelic for Water of Life…)
We cook from scratch, keep it simple but with a wee twist and serve it all with creativity, imagination and proper hospitality.
We are friendly relaxed team,with high standards! We all have a passion for sharing the simple pleasures of great food and drink, wonderful atmosphere and ambience and the special ‘can’t quite put my finger on it’ magic of our wee place. We can’t really take credit for the immense beauty that sits outside our front door…
It is a special place, and whether by sea or by road we think the destination is definitely worth the journey!
We always recommend booking – we get extremely busy, we don’t like to rush anybody to finish and it is a long road so please call to check we have a table!
Currently we are open seasonally, generally from Easter until the end of October (in 2017 we hope to be open during the festive season too) and we look forward to seeing old and new friends this year!
Full updates on our 2017 opening times will be posted here in due course (as soon as I know when the renovations are finished!)
We’d love to welcome you to this wee rest beside the shore…
