MULL’S MacGochans is cel­e­brat­ing af­ter be­ing short­listed in two cat­e­gories at the Scot­tish Bar and Pub Awards.

The Tober­mory hostelry is up for bar of the year as well as the qual­ity award at the gongs cer­e­mony on Tues­day Au­gust 16 in Glas­gow’s Hil­ton ho­tel.

Pub­li­can Neil Mor­ri­son said: ‘ We’re ab­so­lutely de­lighted. We won the Ten­nent’s qual­ity award in 2014 and were short­listed for Sun­day Mail Pub of the Year the same year.’

Neil, who has run MacGochans for five years, said: ‘ We al­ways try to push stan­dards up on the is­land and it’s good we get recog­nised for the stan­dards we have.

‘We try to pro­mote as much lo­cal stuff as pos­si­ble, in­clud­ing food and drink from lo­cal farms or seafood that comes straight off the boat into the pub.

‘We cater for up to 400 meals a day and keep a pris­tine cel­lar and glasses.’
