I travelled here for a birthday treat, after falling in love with Applecross the previous year. I was certainly not disappointed. It has a brilliantly friendly feel, and the food is amazing..The langoustines are well worth the journey in. As you can't book a table unless you are staying at the Inn, it can get busy, but even if there... More

Just had drinks, no food as it was just after Christmas! But the happy diners looked pleased with their choices. Nice place and great views! Well worth a visit.

Like everyone else, we stopped in Applecross Inn after adrenaline-filled drive through Bealach na ba. It simply had to be done. The pub was packed but the staff was friendly and patient. It was surprisingly warm so after choosing our flag (such a cool quirky idea!) we sat outside. We had fish & chips and burgers and they were both... More

Had lunch here while on holiday and it was a lovely place to stop. It was full of character and a very cosy place to shelter from the rain. I had the Torridon smoked salmon which was delicious.

We drove over the single track road through the Apple-cross Mountains in November in challenging conditions which was worth it for the scenery, but to find this Gem of an Inn was the icing on the cake for me. We sat next to a warm fire with christmas lights all around us and a board full of food to choose... More

Now this place is busy. Those brave enough to cross the Applecross Pass road have only this inn to steady their nerves and satisfy their foody wants.....so get there early to ensure you have a table and they don't run out of the best food you will eat in many a long year. Right on the sea shore the views... More
