Despite being unable to decipher the Scottish accent, I found the staff to be helpful, patient and caring. The food is obviously just microwaved stuff but was still of high quality. My first meal in Mallaig proved to be worth the wait!

We went here for dinner without a booking for a table. Although the place was packed, the friendly staff managed to get us a table. The seafood here is lovely. The portions are very generous. Loved the cheeseburger with Brie

I've only just had chance to write this review, but I visited the Chlachain Inn when driving around Scotland in April. We did a day trip to Skye and returned to the mainland on the ferry to Mallaig.

We were warmly welcomed by the bar staff on a cold and wet June evening! The food was of excellent , fresh quality and nicely served. We are fish lovers, so the haddock, scallops and mussels hit the spot. If ever back in Mallaig would not pass it by! A superb meal.

Had dinner in here with friends and quite simply adored the Cullen Skink main course, which they kindly served with garlic bread instead of the usual crusty. I'm returning to Mallaig in a couple of weeks,mind I'm looking forward to spending time with friends, staying and eating at the fabulous Chlachain!
