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.
“Alastair Scoular is quietly dedicated to running this delightful quayside inn with comfortable rooms and a popular restaurant - well patronised by locals. Praise for this family-owned pub in a pretty seafaring village in the Isle of Whithorn. Tea and coffee are served all day. The consistently good blackboard menus (changed twice daily) are served in the small, busy bars; the bright, cheerful dining room and the conservatory. They use fish from the harbour; cooked to perfection king scallops, monkfish, lemon sole; steaks from Inverurie. Dishes designed for hearty appetites.”
