After walking three hours through hail and rain I was looking forwards to a hearty pub meal. Instead I was presented with a scallop dish which could only charitably be described as a starter, I ordered an additional portion of chips which arrived way after I had finished the meagre 'main' meal. Seems like making a healthy profit takes precedence...

We are very sorry you did not enjoy your experience at the Glenelg Inn, and regret you could not bring this to our attention at the time rather than rushing home to write such a damning review. It would have been remarkable indeed if the chips that you ordered after your main courses were brought to the table were instantly...

Excellent pub, a bit out of the way but the scenic journey, the atmosphere and the roaring fire makes it worth travelling to! Only popped in for a drink but made to feel welcome and the kids were free to play the pool table, which isnt always the case in a pub. Will be back again . .

Just had a drink here but lovely cosy little pub, definitely worth going to...takes a while to get to but the countryside is amazing and you can hop on the ferry across to Skye (recommend the ferry too - it's a great experience!)

Excellent!The location,room,view,food and entertainment were first class.The staff and owners made you us very welcome.It is out of the way but if you are near its one not to miss.The seafood is so fresh it was still alive outside the back door of the kitchen.The ferry to Skye from Glenelg is also Fantastic.

The Glenelg inn is my hidden gem to hide away from the world at. First, you can drive the scenic mountain passes from Glensheil to get there or take the Skye ferry - last turn table ferry operating in Britain, either way that alone makes for an experience. Once there the upper rooms are where to stay. They are lovely,...

A few years ago it had the best food ever, then went right downnhill, and has now picked up again but not nearly to its old level. Nice venue and good fire burning on cold, wet evenings. No good draft beer available. Food not bad but a little overpriced ~ they know there is no competition this side of the...

We had a fantastic night here. From the minute we arrived the locals in the bar were massively friendly and full of great patter. The atmosphere was great and the selection of beers was great. The food was gastro pub standard - as good as you will get in any of the upmarket London gastro pubs but with a view...
