Why should you have to pay more for organic food? All food should be safe and good for you. This is the basic premise on which all the Mhor businesses are based. And why the Lewises focus more on locally sourced rather than organic produce?
The Scotch Oven in Callander is a bakery shop and tearoom and has been supplying bread to the area for over a hundred years. The Lewises bought the bakery in March 2007, with the aim of expanding the business, preserving what is best in quality Scottish baking and introducing a range of artisan breads.
The restaurant within the Tarbet Hotel is furnished in a warm and classy style.
