Stayed for one night only. Of course the drive to Glencoe is just astonishing. Beautiful views are everywhere so by the time one gets to the Clahaig Inn, ones supply of adequate superlatives has been exhausted. Anyway to the review. Average room, average bed, rather good bathroom, restaurant is busy and the food ok, but the staff are rather uncoordinated.... More

Great view of the Glencoe Glens. We stopped for drinks and to get information about where to go. The bartender was very accommodating when asked about the area. He brought us a map and took time to tell us what the area had to offer. Although we didn't eat the food being taken to the tables looked delicious. It was... More

We visited as we were camping at Red Squirrel, a 10 minute walk away. The location is fantastic. You order your food at the bar on a pay as you go basis. Our food came within 5 minutes of ordering which was worrying. Kids haggis came with a gravy poured all over it which wasn't expected but this was exchanged... More

Stopped off here for a meal whilst driving from Mallaig to Loch Lomond. Great setting, plenty parking, good choice of local beers, massive selection of whisky, nice food, veggy haggis was a hit and I enjoyed the cajun salmon. Friendly staff and dog friendly.

Famous pub with lots of interesting photos of Scottish mountaineering in Glencoe. It has been modernised to a high standard and has a light interior. Good range of ales on offer and the food was very tasty (we had vegetarian Haggis). The negative is the price of both the beer and the food - pretty in line with expensive south... More

nice meal with my partner on what was the only sunny day of the holiday. Went very early 12ish and was very quiet. Served quickly. Both has fish and chips which were lovely. Would have expected more rustic style chips but this didnt bother us as it was a welcome relief from a camp stove!!!! We will be back.

Food was great, reasonable prices and plenty to choose from. Excellent beer selection especially if you like cask style. Toffee dessert was great

Stopped in for a couple and a bite to eat. Beer was quite expensive @ £3.95 a pint but food was good and well priced. Local brews only so don't ask for a Budweiser or anything exotic. Lovely place for a seat outside on a sunny day. Would recommend.

Thank Kenny S
