Glenelg is idyllic on a late spring day. We were fortunate, not the first time to visit when the skies were blue, the sun was high and the waters separating the mainland from Skye were like glass. It's hard to imagine a more peaceful place, where you can pick out all the sounds of the natural world around you.

As if that's not enough, the Glenelg Inn offers a perfect spot to rest, eat and drink in a comfortable and warm, friendly atmosphere. The beer garden is stunning, the pub itself has charm and character, the welcome is friendly and the food is fresh and of good quality. We were in the pub before dinner when the langoustine catch arrived, including 'pete the prawn' the largest langoustine my daughters had ever seen. Equally good were the Squat lobsters, which my youngest daughter would eat all day.

I've read some of the other reviews and yes, the Inn has been very busy on weekends and holidays when we've stayed and yes, maybe an extra member of staff might help on these occasional evenings, but bear in mind it's not easy to staff up for peak times in a small community, and in any case.....what's the rush when you're in such a great location? Have another point and enjoy the wait.

Spent a sunny and relaxing few days in Glenelg staying locally and dining at the glenelg inn.
The inn is set in a beautiful location overlooking the sea loch.

Dinners comprised of local food with fish and scallops & oysters to the fore. Nicely prepared and very enjoyable.

Nice to see a wee pudding wine on the wine list and which complimented our deserts beautifully.

We found this place on a cold and wet night whilst travelling home from Skye. The accomodation was great with a view of the loch. Breakfast was also good value with a range of choices.

Staff were friendly, helpful and made us feel welcome. Top marks !

Stunning setting, with the best beer garden in the UK....but....on our visit I got the impression the owner was just trying to maximise profits. Incredibly busy, but only two harassed waitresses. We waited one hour for wine to be delivered - after several reminders - and even longer for the food. Food was adequate but over-priced, tiny portions. Captive market, no alternatives - a real shame that is seen as grounds for corners to be cut.

This is a typical old scotish pub.
The bedrooms were excellent clean well decorated with great views over the loch
Beer was good we also had an evening meal steak and chips which was good but could have done with something else peas salad etc for the price
Breakfast very good
Would recommend

Room Tip: Try for one upstairs better views

Have to say we were sceptical having read some of he reviews but we were staying in Glenelg for our Honeymoon, so on our 1st night after a long drive we decided to forget the reviews and walk there for an evening meal. So glad we did.

I had the Langoustines in a chilli reduction and my husband had the risotto both were spectacularly cooked the langoustine they were succulent and sweet and tasted ofthe sea and the chilli and cream reduction was to die for. My husbands Risotto was cooked perfectly and had lovely basil and omato flavours and the house wine, yes house wine was reasonably priced and delicious.

The food was so good the next day we had lunch there too and I had scallop and langustine bisque and my husband had crab - again both were deicious although the crab a touch too spicy for me but he really enjoyed it.

Then on our 3rd and final night we wenntfor an earlyeveningdrink in the beer garden and then our eveningmeal. I ordered steak and My husband had fresh mallaig haddock and it was so fresh it was delicious and my steak has to come close to the best steak I have ever tasted, it was beautifully cooked.

I cannot comment on the rooms but he food the setting the staff and the ambience were all 1st class and they are very dog friendly too (dogs on lead allowed in side as well as in beer garden)
