Eating out near Treshnish
There are some great eating places near Treshnish, all within 20-25 minutes drive. We are spoilt for choice!
It is advisable to pre-book a table at the restaurants as they will get booked up.
The Piece Box, Dervaig
Mary at the Piece Box is a great baker and makes a variety of sourdough bread, cakes, filled rolls and sausage rolls using shellfish caught locally and meats from island farms. She also makes the pizza dough for the Shepherd’s Hut wood-fired pizza oven. Contact Mary for all your picnic needs!
Croft 3 is a wonderfully restored farm steading restaurant located between Torloisk and Ulva Ferry with lovely views out over Loch Tuath. Jeanette has a 3 course menu most nights. Look out for her Curry and Seafood nights and her Sunday roasts.
The Spicy Sprout
Ester at the Spicy Sprout does a popup takeaway night each Tuesday from Dervaig village hall. Her curries are legendary! It is advisable to prebook as she usually sells out. She also has a stall on Monday’s weekly Tobermory Producers Market.
Iain and Joyce open their home 4 nights a week – a delight of foraged and island produce creatively prepared in their sunny living room. Ar Bord gets very booked up so book well in advance (before you arrive on the island).
Cafe at Calgary Arts
The team at the cafe at Calgary Arts this year are cooking up a storm – with a new menu during the day and a Friday night popup. We haven’t been to their evening popup yet, but friends have and they say it was very good. (We will be going soon!)
Am Birlinn is committed to using island produce. They grow herbs and salads in their croft garden, and Highland beef in their fields. Shellfish tends to come from less than a mile away – impressively low food miles!
The oldest inn on the island opens its doors 7 nights a week in the summer. They offer takeaways as well as eating in. Why not order their gluten free fish and chips and enjoy them at Calgary on a summers evening on your way back to Treshnish?!
The Foodie Shack
Delicious wood fired pizzas cooked in a trailer. They come to Dervaig once a month. Check them out on the Food Trail website!
Mull and Iona Food Trail
For other sources of island produce and eating places further afield have a look at the Mull and Iona Food Trail website.
