Real slow local food at Seaview with real free range eggs

We enjoy cooking at Seaview bed and breakfast - we both love food (the battle of the bulge and the expanding waistlines are always testimony to that, although walking Megan and Lainie helps to keep the inches off!). We enjoy cooking for our guests, trying out new recipes with local seasonal produce, adapting traditional recipes and generally having fun in the kitchen. John is the Scottish equivalent of the Swedish Chef (for those of you who remember the Muppet Show!) and he does a good impression of the grumpy old geezers in the theatre show balcony too! His wife on the other hand is more of a 'Delia'; so the styles are very different but surprisingly we work incredibly well together in the kitchen and produce some cracking good meals

 Why is food so important to us?

Well, other than the obvious reason that we need food to survive, we both appreciate good food cooked and presented really well because in a busy frenetic world, sitting down to eat a meal is very often the only time in the day that folk actually stop what they are doing, sit down, relax and catch up with each other. We are passionate believers in the 'slow food' movement and we believe that this is the best way to eat -  using locally sourced and home grown produce, organic wherever possible, seasonally produced and as fresh as the daisies on our lawns. 

Our Famous Breakfast
Fruit Salad,food,Seaview bed and breakfast

Our 12 fresh fruit salad

Breakfast (the main meal of the day and some may argue the most important meal; after all you are 'breaking your fast') is a relaxed and leisurely affair at Seaview bed and breakfast served in the breakfast room with glorious panoramic views over looking the aquamarine blue waters of the Sound of Iona.

Your breakfast is cooked fresh to order.We don't expect you to order your breakfast the night before, John offering you genuine Scottish hospitality alongside lovely homemade scotch pancakes and naughty whisky marmalade.

Our breakfasts are famous around the world because we offer a wide and varied selection of foods that cater for most folk including vegans and vegetarians.

As well as our famous Fingal's Breakfast for those with a hearty appetite (designed to set you up for the day), we offer lighter alternatives as well as seasonal specials and we use fresh ingredients sourced locally.

Vegetarian/vegan

We don't force feed you and we don't waste food. Guests who stayed with us recently claimed the only difference between the quality and tastiness of our breakfast choices Seaview B and B- full a la carte seasonal menu cooked to order breakfast and that served in the illustrious home of a well known Clan Chief on the Isle of Skye was the price!

Well I reckon that was a compliment if I ever heard one.

Picnic Lunches a lá Seaview accommodation
Food,Seaview,Dining room

Our new refurbished dining room at Seaview with super view to beach, Iona and Abbey 

Although we don't offer full board in the truest sense of the word, we wouldn't want you to go hungry during the day especially if you are out and about traipsing round our wonderful landscapes working up an appetite.

We can pack you up with your own mouth-watering picnic lunch so you can have an 'al fresco' affair on the beach, in the glens, up a mountain or just sat in the front garden watching the world go by - or even watching the dolphins performing ballet dances up and down the Iona Sound.

 

 

 

Tasty good old fashioned home cooking from the best of Scotland's Natural Larder

As an island we are fortunately blessed with the lack of 'fast food' outlets and high street shops and supermarkets. This means we have to rely quite a lot on the locally produced food, seasonally grown fresh produce and a hefty dose of creativity and self-reliance and good old fashioned slow home cooking.

We are proud to serve our fresh, local food to our lovely discerning guests!
