Booking in advance is imperative as most of the visitors are cyclists who often stay in the bunkhouse and one of the great joys and remembrances of our stay of our stay will be the great chats with hosts, visitors - who return again and again and cyclists. The inn is a gem not found elsewhere. Kai and Mike are... More

When we stayed, we had the double room booked beforehand - and that was a good thing, as the inn was so busy, people were camping in the garden and even sleeping in the garden house! There's a cottage house with bunk beds that was full of cyclists. Seemingly a lot of people were friends with the owners and come... More

Grand Scottish hospitality for Hogmanay and New a year. Kai and Mike are warm and generous hosts and although there is a restricted dinner menu, the food is home cooked, wholesome, plentiful and perfect after a day out on the hills. The Inn has no "mod cons" but is the better for that. We felt like the odd ones out... More

The existence of this haven and its proprietors, Kye and Mike make me retain a belief in mankind. If you want to get away from all that is wrong in modern life go to the Crask. Cozy accomodation,warm company, good honest food and above all free of pretensions. Thank goodness places like this are still out there .

I have stayed at The Crask on several occasions..it is always a home from home..very friendly staff with a warm greeting..the evening meals are plentiful and very tasty..it's always satisfying to have a great pint overlooking beautiful scenery... I'm already looking forward to further planned trips next year!

We stopped here for a night and it was absolutely brilliant. A great host welcomed us warmly, some lovely ales followed by a fabulous dinner. Breakfast was excellent and the inn is located in a stunning isolated area. I can't wait to return.

We had lunch here on our way to Melvich. Don't stop at the Crask Inn if you want sophisticated cuisine or fast food. The pace of life is gentler here - take your time and enjoy the warmth of the owners' hospitality and the warmth of the fire as well as the good honest food and beer - when it... More

Stayed for one night as part of our ruby wedding celebrations..True old fashioned hospitality. First visited four years ago as we passed on our way north. This time we stayed. The evening meal was superb - food as food should taste. This was followed by a great convivial evening in the bar. Good night sleep followed by a wonderful breakfast... More

This place is well worth a visit. The door to the bar is always open, when you go inside the place is stuck in the 1960`s or earlier. There is no TV, no wifi, no juke box, just a roaring fire and old pictures and books on shelves. The owners friendly collie dogs were asleep in front of the fire.... More

An excellent home cooked meal, good beer, good whiskey, great company & music too. A comfortable night and a tasty breakfast. A lonely, isolated inn in wild and beautiful countryside. Escape from WIFI, TV and the rat race, go there and meet real people and real Scottish hospitality
