Yummy Restaurants

My husband and I are touring Scotland at the end of October. We love to eat as local as possible and enjoy the food culture of any country we visit. We usually have wonderful luck with any restaurant in the RS guidebooks, but I thought I'd reach out and see if there are any particularly delicious restaurants you visited that you'd recommend. We aren't picky and cost isn't an issue as long as the quality matches it. I'm really just looking for good places that have stood out in your mind during your travels or if you are a local, a place that you frequent.
The trip schedule is as follows:
Two days in Glasgow and Glencoe.
Two days in Portree and Skye.
Two days in Inverness, Loch Ness, and Culloden.
Finally, three days in St. Andrews, Sterling and Edinburgh.

In Stirling I can recommend Brea; it fits the description that you gave and was a nice, friendly place with lots of locals. We ate there in May and liked it so much we ate there twice.

In Edinburgh I'd suggest David Bann; it is an all-vegetarian restaurant but don't let that put you off if you're not vegetarians. The atmosphere is upscale and the food was fantastic and all locally sourced. You will likely need a reservation.

Three Chimneys on Skye is wonderful. Reserve ahead.

A lot of it depends on your budget and cuisine tastes.

However Glasgow has a lot, and I mean a lot, of good restaurants.

In Portree, Scorrybreac and Sea Breezes. Reserve well in advance. Portree was VERY busy last fall.

Glasgow: The Mussel Inn, if you like mussels, is wonderful!

Ask around. Inverness you stand a better chance of choicee given the population.

Glasgow I have had wonderful meals be they Scottish or international

The worst Chinese meal in Scotland I have had was in Tobermory, Mull. The best steak I have had has been less than 300 metres from that restaurant - Scottish steak, Scottish vegetables, Polish chef.

Ask at the hotel.
