On the 2nd day of our foodie weekend in the Highlands, we moved from Applecross to Plockton, a delightful village near Kyle of Lochalsh. Like the Applecross Inn, the Plockton Inn has a good reputation for its seafood. Unfortunately, we had some car problems that day and sorting them out took a while, so we arrived fairly late.
Fortunately, we had called to reserve a table – the restaurant was absolutely full. More fishy delights. My starter tonight was crab bisque, which was a rich and tasty fish soup. My wife Anne had the langoustines and I was a wee bit jealous.
My main course was skate in black butter – a classic fish dish that you don’t see very often. Skate isn’t to everyone’s taste (or perhaps it’s a texture thing) but I enjoy it and this was a good example. Maybe rather too many capers but these were easy to leave aside.
No pudding again and we repaired to the bar for excellent local Plockton Ale. Again, the prices were very reasonable for the quality of the food – we were about £22 each for 2 courses.
