Holy mackerel! – a feast from loch to table

Fantastic, fun and totally delicious.

We enjoy a spot of fishing, and there is no shortage of great places to fish around Balliemeanoch – both sea and fresh water.

I have to admit though, there is generally more enthusiasm than skill involved in our efforts, and we came back empty-handed from our first two fishing expeditions.  But third time lucky; at our latest attempt we managed to catch the most fabulous mackerel, right here on Loch Fyne. (We reckon that Nick, just starting his summer break from uni, must have been our lucky charm!)

Charlie stepped in to do all the messy stuff, and then we cooked up a simple but tasty feast.  It was so satisfying to eat a dinner that we’d caught ourselves, on the loch around the corner.  And at less than two hours from water to table, it’s certainly the freshest fish I’ve eaten for a long time – we could taste the sea with every mouthful!

I am sure this is something our guests will enjoy too. And if they would like their own loch-to-table dinner, we’ll be only too happy to prepare, cook and serve it up!

    Wow.If Nick can catch a fish they must all be suicidal! The meal looks wonderful I can almost taste it. Folks if you have never eaten fresh caught mackerel from Loch Fyne you have not lived.

  2. I can not wait until I have that feast too. Must be time for another meeting soon!
