“I am so glad I found The Pierhouse ... little did we know what delightful treats our tastebuds had in store! I can say hands down they had the best mussels in Scotland! Divine! The room was very tasteful with a beautiful bathroom. And the loch views are just to die for. I wouldn't hesitate to go back. If you get the chance you must go here! You won't regret it!"
