The six of us were booked in here as the 'Base Camp' for our 2015 Highland Ride. It's the first time I have stayed here but the other guys have used this place several times. We arrived slightly moist after riding up from the Edinburgh area and were checked in very quickly with no fuss. We immediately headed to the... More

Dinner for three, one veggie, excellent choice. Beautifully cooked, excellent service, highly recommended. Charming location off the main road, on the old road. Lovely Maguire gardens with an art gallery of quality.

My wife, dog and I ventured up the west coast of Scotland today with the weather forecast being good. After a nice meander around Gairloch harbour and beach we headed for The Old Inn as we had found a write up about it the day before telling us that it was lovely on a warm day in its Beer Garden....

My new wife and I stayed at the Inn in August as part of our Highland honeymoon. This is a gorgeous inn with friendly staff and a lovely restaurant. It is a lovey spot with a small river running close by and walks to a local waterfall. There was entertainment in the bar with a local acoustic guitar player/singer who... More

Had a meal here that was very good and decided to return as it was so good. Ordered the langoustines on 2 occasions as they were plentiful and fresh. Service was good and for the money it was a very good meal indeed. The pub and restaurant also has a nice outdoor seating area. Dog and child friendly.

We stayed only one night at this hotel but could have stayed longer. The service was friendly and professional. The room was nice and beautiful but I didn't find a hair dryer in a room. The restaurant was very good and we had a delicious dinner there. I recommend a table reservation. The wifi worked well.

I'm writing two reviews as I cannot give an average rating for the B and B side of the Inn and the restaurant. So, B and B. I only gave a score of 3 rather than 4 as compared to all our other B and B's on our tour it was the most expensive at £112 per night (Others £75... More

We just came to the pub for drinks in the evening as we were staying in erradale.. The young man behind the bar who served us every night was so polite and his customer service was brilliant... He was attentive and almost had our drinks on the bar before we asked as he remembered us... I don't know his name... More

We arrived by boat and we were directed to the old inn as a place to get a good pint. And we were not disappointed the staff were most helpful in giving us sample of their ales all were great. Nice setting to stay in but it was back to the boat well satisfied.

Not many bars in Gairloch so we were delighted with this Fabulous wee find in a gorgeous location. Lovely evening bar meal with good beer. Very very busy but we managed to get a comfy seat. Great atmosphere with friendly, helpful staff. Our dog was allowed with us too, bonus! Highly recommend this great bar!
