I’ve complied a list of a few of the places we either ate at or I enquired about.
- Monster Fish and Chips have a separate fryer for their chips as well as gluten free vinegar and gravy!
- The Boathouse has gluten free options on their menu, however it was unfortunately closed.
- The Lock Inn has a couple of gluten free options on their menu, but they were also closed.
- The Bothy has a few different options available, we went there for dinner on Monday as it was the only restaurant open. They do currently have a restaurant curfew of 8pm due to covid, but the bar is open until 10 – outside drinking only.
- Choc-o-Latte cafe & shop is a tiny cafe within a farm property we found on the way to the Stoer Lighthouse on the Assynt loop. Run by a lovely Belgian lady, the cafe offers gluten free hot chocolate and a couple of sweet options. I had a lovely meringue that had a tangy cream to combat the sweetness.
Isle of Skye
- Broadford Co-op had a fantastic range of gluten free options. We picked up some chorizo sausages and bbq foods and had a great feed over a bonfire one night.
- Uig Hotel Restaurant has a fair few gluten free starter options, including the soup of the day which was courgette and rosemary. A gluten free bun was provided as well (warmed up so must be from a frozen stash, but I preferred it warmed up). The only gluten free mains option is the venison, lucky for me that’s what I wanted!
- The Croft Cafe I found through a google search and we stopped in for a bite before heading over to Skye. I had some soup and a hot chocolate. Apparently there are Highland coos around everywhere but we didn’t see any the whole trip.
We saved a bit on meals by cooking in the van and snacking throughout the day. Van meals included cereal, minted lamb kebabs with roasted veg, BBQ and salad and pasta dishes.
