Tailrace Inn Bar: “Great bar food”

I had the haggis, neeps and tatties, which was absolutely delicious. After ordering our food at the bar it didn’t take long before we could enjoy our food. The tables could be cleaner though. Our table was sticky and hadn’t been cleaned in a while.

Lios Mhoire Bed and Breakfast: “Lovely host, great stay!”

Kareen is such a warm and welcoming person, who makes you feel right at home. She is the perfect hostess and gave us some great tips to view the area of Glencoe. The room we stayed in was clean, with a great rain shower! Breakfast was very good. I loved the fresh fruit salad and the greek yoghurt and the cooked breakfast was also very delicious. We got the chance of meeting the other guests while taking breakfast together at the big dining room table. Very pleseant to be able to exchange stories. The location nearby the lake is also perfect!

I can definitely recommend this B&B!

La Barca Spanish Tapas & Wine Bar: “Mediocre at best”

I’m sorry but a tapas restaurant that serves stir fried rice instead of paella shouldn’t be called authentic. The rice wasn’t even yellow! I guess they forgot to add saffron. It was clear to me that the paella wasn’t prepared following the original recipe (there should be a crust on the bottom). The other tapas were fine, but it came as a suprise to me that they added orange juice to their sangria. The atmosphere was nice though.
