There are plenty of nearby options to top up on supplies – although all are a driving distance away. In Bonar Bridge there is a Spar with small bakery. There is also a Spar in Lairg – this is larger and better stocked than Bonar Bridge. For wider selections, Tain has a decent offering including Tesco, Lidl and also Asda. Ullapool also has a Tesco. However, there are also choices in Dornoch and Golspie.
Where to eat at Ceol Mor Highland Lodges? Well, this is a not a super easy one for us as we moved here during lockdown and are still discovering many of the local delights. However, we can recommend some – Invercassley Tea Rooms in Rosehall do simple and honest hot meals at very reasonable prices (they also deliver to us); The Pier in Lairg is great for both lunches and evening meals. Try and get a seat overlooking the loch if you can. Go further afield to Tain (Platform 1864 and Greens are both very good) or Dornoch (Milk & Honey is very good for lunches and breakfast). Meikle Ferry also is good – near Tain. We are in a fairly remote area – for this reason we are not within walking distance of an eatery or pub. However, this is absolutely part of the beauty of our area where we live.
We’re sure you are not expecting much in terms of takeaways! There’s no Uber Eats, Just Eat or anything else like this here – it’s pretty much back to basics. There is a Chinese take away in Bonar Bridge that we really like.
Lastly, on the subject of where to eat at Ceol Mor Highlkand lodges there is one thing we do locally. Yvonne loves to do afternoon teas and can take bookings (at least 48 hours notice please) for up to 4 people. We hold these in our Sun Room at the main house that has a 180 degree panoramic view up and down the river from an elevated spot. Yvonne is a fabulous baker and we would highly recommend this – the tastes and superb views are brilliant.
