May 28 – 2009 – late review but needed to pay tribute to the recommendation of the Clachaig Inn in Glencoe. Great place to visit in Scotland. This was one of our last stops in a two week Scotland self-guided vacation/tour, and even after seeing some beautiful landscapes and castles, Glencoe was one of our favorite places. You get caught up in the atmosphere of the Clachaig Inn – one of the great places we stayed. The setting is beautiful and it's easy to find. It is a perfect base for walkers and hikers. The beer tasting event that was held the first night we were there was great - one of the highlights of our trip. Very relaxed and fun.
The inn is old, and the rooms a bit dated, but adequate; you shouldn't be in the rooms anyway, except to sleep. Rooms were a bit expensive compared to other B&B options –so not the best value for a night's sleep but the great atmosphere does make up for it. If you’re in Glencoe and can afford an extra $20/30 per night – stay here – it’s worth it.
