Two small businesses based in Tobermory and Oban have been recognised in the Scottish Parliament, following their inclusion in a UK-wide list of the best places to eat seafood.
Café Fish, who are based in Tobermory and the Oban Seafood Hut were included among a total of seven Scottish businesses in the Observer newspapers ‘22 best places to eat seafood around the UK coast’.
Both businesses were commended in the article by renowned local chef-owner of the Inver restaurant near Strachur, Pam Brunton.
News of the inclusion in the Observer’s list, prompted local MSP Donald Cameron to acknowledge the achievement in the Scottish Parliament by means of a written motion.
Donald Cameron MSP said:
“I am extremely pleased that two businesses from Argyll have been recognised at a UK-wide level in this way. This positive publicity can only help these local businesses and others across Argyll.
“Few things are better than freshly caught and locally prepared seafood, and I look forward to visiting both businesses over the summer to try out their offering.
“As we continue our recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more vital than ever that we support our local businesses as well as encouraging tourists to spend money locally.”
