Great Food

Food is an essential ingredient in any successful trip and we take great pride in our delicious high quality meals.

Each morning there is a cooked breakfast, after which we make up packed lunches. When we return from a day out kayaking there will be afternoon tea and freshly baked cakes waiting for us. Sarah, our cook on all Barra based trips, produces wonderful evening meals using local produce from her own croft and from the sea (her husband Neil Paul is a fisherman). We use as much locally-sourced produce as possible, which will vary with the season, therefore keeping food miles low. Sarah is a crofter, gardener and local food enthusiast and a member of the Slow Food Movement.
The standard of food we serve is perhaps the biggest surprise of the week for many people. Invariably it far exceeds expectations. We happily cater for Vegetarians, Vegans, Celiacs and other dietary needs.

A sample of our menu is shown below, typically each day will feature a selection from each column.
