We were cycling from Ullapool to Bettyhill over a couple of days and advised to call at Crask Inn by a fellow cyclist. It is in a remote location and looked deserted when we arrived, all adding to its aura! We walked in and were greeted by the very friendly landlady and sat down in the living room. She brought...

Spent the night camping at the crask inn on NY way walking from John o' groats to lands end in the summer on the end to end trail. The pub food wa a fantastic treat. The owners very friendly. Pub is very remote I came across it after long slog in deep Pete bogs

I visited here, as part of a hill-walking small group, to stay at the bunkhouse. It is a very remote place, and if you want TV's, Wifi etc, this place is not for you. But, if you can forgo these for a day, and travel back in time, this is the place to stay. Clean bedding etc, friendly hosts, and... More

We just loved our two days at the Crask Innn.. The lovely hosts ,Mike and Kai made us feel so welcome and warmly shared their home/time/dogs/home cooking with us. We were treated to venison, home grown vegetables,.....and peace and quiet.. Away from wifi and television.... Magnificent setting with the light over the landscape always changing.. Hopefully the simple charm of... More

Having spent a couple of days on horseback, this was a very welcome stop. The front door opens up on to the bar with a peat stove to the side. Pretty good selection of whiskies. The hosts were friendly and the food excellent.

I went up and down Ben Hope, and then looked on the map for somewhere to stay. I saw Crask Inn and remembered the recommendation from other hikers. I could have camped outside or stayed in the bunkhouse, but there was a single room free, and so I went for that. The inn has no mod-cons like TV, etc, but... More

We stopped for a coffee before climbing Ben Hope which isn't too far away. It was a misty morning and very atmospheric - we weren't even sure they were open for business but a lovely lady who works there invited us in for coffee (the owners were off voting for/against devolution when we were there). We sat in the bar... More

Don't stay here if your idea of perfection is a Premier Inn. There is nowhere else like the Crask. We were cycling LEJOG. The Inn is like stepping back into the 1950s with its decor. The welcome was great, the food was just what we wanted and very homely. We stayed on the shortest night of the year and still... More
