The best Scottish seafood brewery of the year 2006
The Gairloch Old Inn was rewarded with the highly esteemed award for the Seafood Pub of the Year in 2006, which is not an easy task in this country which is a high place in Europe for fishing and the farming of fish and crustaceans such as langoustines, lobsters, scallops and salmon.
A seafood restaurant rewarded for its sustainability policy
Local findings show that changes in climate data and the resulting rise in temperature have allowed the proliferation of certain species as is currently the case for scallops, much to the pleasure of local restaurant owners. The sustainable fishing policy implemented has allowed the reconversion of certain fishing techniques to better manage the resource.
The northwestern coasts of Scotland offer excellent living conditions for a number of crustaceans and shellfish, most of which are collected for export and a smaller portion for local consumption, which is highly appreciated by tourists.
