A’Challtainn (pronounced A Cawl Tain, Gaelic for Calton, meaning “the hazel wood”) is a restaurant and cocktail bar in the heart of BAaD at the Barras. Serving the finest Scottish fish and shellfish alongside carefully crafted meat and vegetarian dishes, we here at A’Challtainn pride ourselves on celebrating Scottish produce creating carefully curated dishes for sharing and enjoying with friends and family. 

This is contemporary, relaxed dining in a vibrant, stylish and creative environment. 


The Restaurant

Sitting high above the space at BAaD, guests at A'Challtainn can enjoy the ever changing light in this large but intimate space. The accompanying A’Challtainn cocktail bar nestles underneath the restaurant mezzanine and has a great view of the chefs hard at work in our open kitchen.

The restaurant and bar lends itself well to a variety of occasions including casual lunches, meetings, catching up with friends, intimate dinner dates and larger group bookings.
