Taynuilt hotel celebrates award win
THE Taynuilt: Etive Restaurant with Rooms is enjoying an award-winning streak after winning Inn of the Year at the Scottish Hotel Awards 2017.
The Taynuilt, which already boasts two AA rosettes, was recognised in three categories at the Argyll and Lomond regional finals at the beginning of the year and continued its success at the national final in Glasgow on April 23.
Vivien Devlin, chairman of the panel of judges for the 2017 awards, said of The Taynuilt: Etive Restaurant with Rooms: ‘This 400-year- old village pub has been re-imagined into a destination restaurant: bedrooms, named after Scottish lochs, have a vintage look with welcome treats: tea, coffee, gin, whisky, chocolates.
‘Under chef patron John McNulty, the kitchen team has a butchery, fish smokery, and forages for wild garlic and herbs.
‘The dinner menu highlights fine local produce: Isle of Skye scallops, lamb, poached rhubarb, cheese.
‘Located a few miles east of Oban, stay here before taking a ferry to explore the Hebridean islands.’
