The very freshest seafood, with cossetting accommodation and fun experiences in this newly updated holiday.

Our Scottish Seafood Trail is designed specifically for lovers of the freshest seafood and shellfish. This holiday includes unique and authentic experiences on a week-long, self-drive tour of some of the most scenic locations on the west coast of Scotland.

Revel in a hands-on seafood cookery demo with a hugely experienced chef (followed by lunch, of course); take a boat trip with a creel fisherman as he hauls in langoustines and brown crabs, then savour the day’s catch with a memorable lunch on the shorefront. Accommodation is in four carefully-chosen small hotels and inns, in fabulous lochside locations, and all boasting great reputations for their food.
