Went for a drink after a meal elsewhere. We were made to feel welcome and the real ales and coal fire made for a very enjoyable evening.

We went on a railway journey to malaig which was included in our national coach holiday, what a beautiful journey. We found this Inn up a side street and were pleased we did.The couple running it were lovely and the food was delicious. A family and dog friendly pub and an open fire.What more could you ask.

The food was good but considering that it's a fishing village I was expecting better quality at a lower price than what's available in Glasgow for example. It's definitely one of... More

A fantastic bar/resteraunt with great food and huge selection of single malts. A brilliant B&B option can be taken, the rooms are well presented and a great full Scottish breakfast will be presented to you in the morning. What really makes this place are the owners and the staff, they really are second to none and go out of their... More
