Lunch time was a treat!

Drove over the Pass of the Cattle and arrived at the Applecross Inn for lunch. Seafood is wonderful and while it's a busy tourist spot it's worth any upset waiting. The village is nice and very beautiful views.

Had a couple of nights in here now. Really nice food. It's not your normal pub food - it's better than that. Some of the best seafood I've tasted. Staff are brilliant. Top marks to Heather - glasses have never been empty.

The drive to Applecross is amazing, stunning scenery at every turn - and there are many of them. Once there you have a choice of the Applecross Inn or you had better have packed sandwiches. We were there for lunch and found the staff very friendly and welcoming. The menu being on boards above a table where a party was... More

Very good menu offering local produce. The haggis and Drambuie starter was very tasty and a huge portion. The Cranachan was very boozy and again a very generous portion. The meat was flavoursome and again portions were very generous. The fish was excellent. The ice cream comes in very unusual home made flavours and just melt in the mouth Very... More

We visited The Applecross Inn at lunchtime on NYE after a wet & blustery walk around the area with dogs. We were all made to feel welcome & shown to a table immediately, soon after the place was rammed! We all ordered seafood & it was wonderful, so fresh & huge portions, well priced. Staff were friendly, definitely worth a... More
