Let's just say we had a hoot at Hootananny. No age restrictions, live Scottish music and great food. I enjoyed the chat with the manager on the history of the place and the Lovat house next door which happens to be the oldest house in Inverness. Great place.

Very busy when we went on Friday couldn't get moved. Squeezed in to the bar got a drink and had to drink it quick cos it was claustrophobic. Good bar service and live music every night.

This place is a gem. A rather famous one in Inverness though. The live music starts at 21.30 and its different every night. Go for drinks or go for dinner- we did both, and had the best fish'n chips on our trip, and a solid and tasty meat pie.

This was one of our favorite places in Scotland. We went two nights, and the music was just amazing! It can certainly get crowded--we never sat down--but it is a friendly, lively place. No cover charge, which would be hard to find in the U.S. One night, there were crowds dancing in the tiny space in front of the band.... More

this pub is great for many reasons: outstanding free live music (musicians were playing at the table next to ours, drinking beer and laughing with the audience), nice and cozy atmosphere, and an impressive selection of beers, including a really tasty and refreshing local lager. Really enjoyed!

Stopped by on a Thursday night (recommended by Rick Steves) and we had so much fun listening to Scottish music! The place was full of locals and the audience even performed a traditional dance. So much fun! Highly recommended!

This is a restaurant as well, we did not eat here. The bar tenders were real nice and kept the beer flowing. They had some scottish music.

My wife and I went here as part of our Scotland honeymoon in 2013. The place was PACKED when we went but that's okay. I'm fine with crowded bars/pubs as long as there is a convivial vibe. I got a pint of either a stout or porter from Black Isle Brewery, a good local beer. The live music that night... More

A perfect option for a night out in Inverness for any day of the week - they have live music every day, not only on weekends (when other pubs in the area sometimes look empty and sad at night). Perfect location in the town center, local beers and traditional music - everything you need for a good night. Please be... More
