London’s favourite Scottish restaurant, Mac and Wild, has recently opened its third restaurant – this one is at the Falls of Shin, Achany, by Lairg.

Taking Mac and Wild back to its Highland roots, founders Andy Waugh and Calum Mackinnon have opened the venue at the Falls of Shin visitor centre, once known as the ‘Harrods of the North’.

The latest opening sees the venture back to the heart and soul of the Highlands, where their story first began and they continue to showcase the best of Scottish produce and suppliers.

Each supplier to the new restaurant has been handpicked to support the local community, while guaranteeing extreme traceability and provenance of all the meat, fish and vegetables on offer.

As in their London restaurants, Mac and Wild at Falls of Shin predominantly serves meat sourced and butchered by Andy’s family’s game-butchering business, Ardgay Game, which has been in existence for more than 30 years. It is located just six miles away from the new site.

The menus feature a selection of their signature dishes, such as their award winning Veni-Moo Burger, Haggis Pops, venison weekend roasts with all the trimmings and deep-fried Mars bar sundae served from the kitchen menu.

Open for dinner every Friday and Saturday evening, diners can delve into signature dishes from the kitchen menu, as well as Mac and Wild’s meaty cuts, including MacDuff’s ribeye steak, venison chateaubriand and the ultimate showstopper, a tomahawk steak, all of which are accompanied by sides of chips or haggis mac and cheese.
