Sample Menus

Our food ethos has always been to reflect the place we are sailing in and try to use as much local produce as possible. A week's menu will be a delicious balance of foods, flavours and textures and be flexible enough to try and match the mood of the day – as well as your preferences.

Porridge made with jumbo organic oats, muesli, granola, yoghurt, fresh berries and fruit compote are available for each breakfast. Mary will talk to you about what is available as a cooked breakfast and of course all this is followed by toast and marmalade, gorgeous Scottish heather honey or our scrumptious  home - made jam supplied by our friend Christine of Garybuie B&B on Skye. And of course - plenty of tea and ground coffee. Morning coffee with Mary's boat - made shortbread or biscuits and afternoon tea with cake or cookies will be served as appropriate. We keep our lunches relatively light to allow for all these goodies! The evening meal starts with canapes and a complimentary aperitif  - you might like to sample from our Scottish single malt whisky ( or boutique gin !) shelf. Wine or choice of soft drink is included with the evening meal. If you have room can finish with cheese board, coffee and chocolates.

Below are some examples of the style of food we like to create.
