Ar brilliant meal

This is very popular but wait for a table it is so worth it! Not only do you have to climb over 2000ft up and 2000ft down in the car ( unless you do the coastal route) but lunch or dinner at the end is exceptional, whether a sandwich or three courses, you will not be disappointed as the awards... read more

We (like many others that day!!) travelled over the stunning but terrifying bealach na ba to reach applecross. It was a horrible day yet the views and scenery were still stunning...I didn't envy all the cyclists in the pouring rain! This was our first time here and we are definitely going to return, hopefully on a nicer day to enjoy... More

A supremely well managed establishment reflected by great service and exceptional food. The seafood lunch was a fantastic reward for getting there the hard way - on our bikes. They did not disappoint!

Relaxed, laid back, good food, good service, wonderful ice cream, fantastic views no matter the weather and a great drive to get there. Its a place we will keep going back to every year on the annual scotland trip. If your lucky you may find live music too.

Wow, wow, thats all I can say to describe this place. The Pub is located right beside the bay and is the perfect rest stop to recover after driving over the scary but breathtaking Applecross Pass! Upon entering the quaint pub one is welcomed by the cosy heat and smell of the crackling log burning fireplace which gives the pub... More

Been here quite a few times to date as visiting has become an annual pilgrimage. We were happy to be back and as usual, due to the high seating demand we had to wait a couple of minutes to be seated. We had prawns and scallops which were fine. What is missing is proper chips and not the generic frozen... More

Were advised to visit The Applecross Inn as soon as we said we were visiting Scotland, so I'd doing the same - You must visit The Applecross Inn :)

Arrived at the campsite at 7.45pm on Saturday night & headed off for the pub hoping we might get a snack if nothing else. Got caught in a sudden rain & hail storm walking down from the campsite and pushed open the door to be confronted with a mobbed & buzzing bar! Feeling like drowned rats we slunk to the... More
