Concierge.com's insider take:
As well as its seven bedrooms and public bar, the Harbour Inn's dining room is a major selling point, with scenic views across to Jura, a neighboring island of the Inner Hebrides. Given the easy access to some of the best seafood in the world, it's no surprise that the Harbour Inn majors in all things finned, and the dining room's decor reflects its maritime setting. The seafood chowder is as chunky as it is creamy, while a fillet of pearly halibut might come with a chardonnay and saffron sauce. The shellfish are superb: Try the zingy crab and prawn tian jazzed up with a lime and chilli dressing, or the huge, fleshy Loch Gruinart oysters that have a salty, peaty taste.
Open daily 12 to 2 pm and 6 to 9 pm.
