The people of easdale are very lucky to have the puffer on their doorstep. It offers warm hospitality, excellent food and even its own brand of comestibles, all of which are worth eating and taking away! But the puffer is not only worth visiting, it is worth going to visit. The very short boat trip helps to work up an appetite, as does a walk round this fascinating island which has a unique history. The puffer has won numerous awards and deserves to win more - it is an example of how excellence can be found even in the smallest and most distant places, and a credit to the family team who have made it work and work brilliantly well.
