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 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/honey/jams and plenty of tea and coffee. Morning coffee with Scottish 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 and if you have room can finish with cheese board, coffee and chocolates. Wine or choice of soft drink is included with the evening meal.
