The Spice Route is 21st century croft diversification on the shores of Loch Inchard in North West Sutherland. From Anam Cara Croft we provide high quality regional Indian, Sri-Lankan and Indonesian ready meals combining local ingredients with the finest spices.

The Spice Route has been featured on BBC Radio Scotland’s Kitchen Cafe and is listed on TripAdvisor. We cook our food from scratch in small batches using locally sourced ingredients, fresh herbs and top quality spices. Our dishes use authentic regional recipes which we have learned to cook in Asia. We grow our own lemon-grass, curry leaves and herbs in our poly-tunnel and our fish is landed by a fisherman based nearby in Kinlochbervie.

We also offer self-contained cookery courses with all the spices, recipe cards, tips, shopping lists and access to our on-line videos where we will share our secrets so you can explore The Spice Route too.
