Opened in 2002, Rocpool has a superb location in the centre of Inverness on the west bank of the river Ness. The restaurant is constructed from glass on two sides and enables diners to admire the nearby Inverness Castle, built in 1836, as well as the view over the city. The interior décor is light and modern, as befits the cuisine which is modern European in style with an emphasis on using the best quality Scottish produce. Expect plenty of seasonal produce from hand-picked local suppliers and small independent outlets. On the menu at Rocpool you can find Highland beef, Speyside venison, Black Isle pork, smoked salmon from Mallaig on the west coast, and mussels from the Shetland Isles.
