Award Winning Dining on Gigha


The Boathouse is a family owned restaurant with a great reputation for the finest Scottish seafood on the West coast of Scotland, most of which is landed on our doorstep.

Our reputation has been built up over the last few years by the culinary delights of our Head Chef Krystian. We have gained recognition from the Michelin Guide four years running and as new owners, we aim to build on that reputation. We have an outstanding menu and ‘Fresh Ins’ board to suit everyone, along with a lovely wine list to choose from. You won’t be disappointed.

We are situated on the shore of the stunning Ardminish Bay at the bottom of the Mull of Kintyre a popular stopping point for boats who are sailing up or down the Mull they can moor up on the newly refurbished moorings and jetty.

For bookings call +44(0)1583 505123, use our online booking system or email [email protected].

Please note our restaurant is seasonal.

Hi Folks, In light of what Boris said yesterday we unfortunately cannot open the restaurant in its usual capacity this year. Instead we will be providing something a bit different. Our Chef Krystian is working on creating some 'seafood street food' to take away with any locally caught seafood we can get our hands on. We will still be doing favourites like the Boathouse Curry and the Gigha Halibut and as usual will be running a fresh in board for any specials we have for you! The outdoor seating will be free to use for anyone wishing to eat by the beach however no tables can be pre-booked or reserved. With this change and the current circumstances we have decided to open a bit sooner, so we will be opening on Thursday the 26th. The ferries are still running and we hope to see you for something a bit different this year! Thanks, The Boathouse
