Dinner in Helensburgh, Scotland

During our brief stay in the small town, we tried two really fantastic places to eat dinner in Helensburgh. Both restaurants were recommended to us by our host at No. 20 B&B: The Cattle & Creel and the Riverhill Courtyard.

The Cattle & Creel was our first stop. The restaurant single-handedly proved that Scotland’s beef rivals our Alberta beef back home. Derek and I had the most delicious Surf & Turf dinner there, which is a great choice of fare, as Scotland is both a cattle-raising and fish-catching nation. As a lover of rare meat, I can say without a doubt that the Scottish cook their steaks to perfection (well-done lovers beware).

The following night, Derek and I headed to the Riverhill Courtyard for dinner, a delightfully renovated barn turned restaurant. Though the portions were a bit smaller, we left satisfied after a tasty three course meal ending with dessert of brownies and ice cream. How could you go wrong?
