Looking for where to eat and drink in Knoydart and Mallaig, Scotland?

Doune Dining Room

Join us for a unique dining experience at Doune, a former crofting community on the western tip of Knoydart, Britain’s last wilderness.
Doune was raised from ruins in the 1980s by Alan and Mary Robinson who originally accommodated and fed guests in their own home, White House.
Our five course winter lunch season recreates this experience with guests seated by a roaring fire in the original Doune Dining Room.
We serve sustainable, local produce, lovingly prepared by an award winning cook.
Rebecca Rutherford and Andrew Brodie
This is a lunch experience unlike any other. We’re confident our guests will enjoy fond memories for years to come.
Five course fixed lunch menu served every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
Maximum eight guests
£55pp with comprehensive drinks menu available
Transport back to Inverie or Mallaig available at £5pp by car or £25pp by private boat

NB: From the road, Doune is accessed via a mountain path, approximately a 20 minute walk.
