The Steam Packet Inn, Isle of Whithorn
The Steam Packet Inn sits on the quay overlooking the picturesque harbour of Isle of Whithorn on the southernmost tip of the Machars peninsula. The village has a peaceful air. Life moves at a slower pace with the daily flow of boats and tide the closest to the hustle and bustle of city traffic. People still stop and talk on the street and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. The Isle is the perfect spot for escaping the pressures of modern living and explore this unspoilt corner of Scotland.
Whether it's just for passing drink, a meal in one of the bars or restaurants or a longer stay in one of our comfortable bedrooms we aim to provide a warm welcome for all our customers. The pub boasts two separate bars, two different dining areas and seven en suite bedrooms.
“The Steam Packet Inn nestles on the quayside in the picture postcard harbour village of the Isle of Whithorn, on the southernmost tip of the Machars peninsula. The Steam Packet is a welcoming inn personally run by the Scoular family. It has a reputation for fine simple food with an emphasis on the freshest Scottish produce, particularly seafood that is often bought straight from boats landing in front of the hotel. It is the perfect venue for an active outdoor holiday in this quiet and beautiful part of the world.”
