“excellent kayak trip”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

Myself and my 13y/o son had an excellent 2 day seakayak experience at Glenuig in July2012. Steve provided the top quality kayaks,paddles and cags, gave us some quick instruction and led us to some amazing places over the two days. Steve was a terrific guide and gave us lots of tips on technique and information on wildlife and history of the area(but not too much). My son particularly enjoyed the capsize and rescue drill.The accomodation was very comfortable and we enjoyed the dinner and breakfasts at the restaurant. Steve later e-mailed us photographs of our kayak trip. Overall I felt it was a memorable experience and excellent value for money.

Visited Glenuig Inn as part of our kayaking holiday. It is set in a stunning and peaceful location - all you can hear is the sea and the sheep! Although the Inn is a haven for kayakers wanting a little luxury and freshen up, it is welcoming to all. Steve, the owner, is friendly and informative and there is the option to try kayaking if you haven't before - be warned though, you will be hooked as you couldn't get a better place to explore by canoe. We were looked after by Chris, waitress, bar maid, cleaner and general Girl Friday! She visited the Inn on a kayaking holiday and loved it so much, she came to stay and work!
The Inn is beautifully designed inside with a fresh, comtemporary feel but has cosy touches like a wood burning stove in the dining room. The bar is a beautiful carved wooden creation. The food is lovely - all home cooked using good quality produce, and there is a great selection of real ales and interesting wines. Thankfully they don't serve Coke, choosing to offer the Fentimans and Belvoir Farm range of soft drinks. Don't expect paninis and chips either, the lunch selection is a range of 'boards' like a Ghillies Board featuring smoked fish or a Stalkers Board withlocally smoked game - yum! There are also curries and a range of other mouth watering dishes.
The rooms are lovely and spacious and have a bath as well as a shower - wonderful for the weary kayaker. There is also a bunkhouse which is alot nicer than normal bunkhouses that sleep eight, and a drying room.
Although we didn't bring our dogs, the Inn is dog friendly and Isla, the resident Belgian Shepherd is a delight.
This place ticked all the boxes for us and we can't wait to come back, along with our kayaks (and maybe even our dogs) and enjoy more than one night here.

We sailed into Glenuig Bay and tied up to one of the very welcome visitor moorings provided by the Glenuig Inn. After a brief walk ashore we adjourned to the Inn where we received a very warm welcome from the Proprietor and his staff. Great selection of cask ales in the tastefully decorated contemporary bar. The evening menu was varied and offered a good variety - as a party of four we all selected a different meal and were delighted with our choices - fresh food cooked to order and delicious! Other reviews have commented on the prices but in our experience (we've been sailing in these waters for 15 years) we always expect to pay a little more for quality in a remote location. Well done Steve and team!

I was here with my family, and we stayed in a four-bed room. It was lovely and very homey. The man who worked at the Inn was very friendly and helpful. The weather was awful so it was nice to be in a spacious and clean room. Not much to see around however (perhaps more of a result of our containment due to the weather)! The food was good as well and decently priced for the area. If you need wifi however, you have to go stand outside the 'shop' 100m away.

Lovely destination business but as we were passing we decided to stop for food. the interior was fantastic and very family friendly spaces. loved the bar and the selection of cask ales. unfortunately, the menu and quality of the food was seriously lacking, especially with the expensive price tags.

We were wrongly informed of the soup of the day and wish the pea was available as the tomato & veg was bland. We had 2x £14.50 steak n ale pies and there was distinct lack of steak amongst the watery, mushroom soup which was seriously over seasoned. To help soak up, we ordered homemade bread and at £2 we expected more than 2 small stale slices. In addition to the pies, we ordered a curry. The rice was lovely and cooked to perfection but the curry sauce was seriously below standard and not value for money at £12-£14

The large, chunky roasted vegetables with all dishes were very good.

After paying £60 for a disappointing meal, we opted to pay £10 for desserts and the sticky toffee pudding got pass marks but the brownie was poor.

Lots of room for improvement, or some price review

Stayed in early May with my late teens/twenties children and one girlfriend revisiting old haunts. We stayed here during our honeymoon years ago so changed a lot interiorly. The accommodation was perfect for our planned activity weekend which included sea kayaking, mountain biking and long walks with the dog in perfect scenery and perfect weather. The landlord was a very pleasant , enthusiastic , helpful, decent bloke and we felt completely at home for our three night stay. We ate there most lunches and every evening and the food was very good. Our overall bill was amazingly reasonable for every thing we had. I know the Inn of old and have visited many times. There is no doubt it is completey different being a clean, contemporary space which is beautifully done but the last time I was here prior to the change it was dire. The atmosphere was perfectly pleasant when there were a few people in the bar so I have no doubt it could regain it's old charm if the locals go back. They seem to have turned their back on what could be a lovely local resource. I can see how the lack of availability of a pint of lager and packets of crisps is a marketing problem tho! Overall a memorable family weekend

Couldnt have been more pleased with the both the standard and layout of the rooms at Glenuig. The double/family rooms are in a building directly next to the inn with a separate entrance per room (with coat lobby so nice and snug). Extremely dog friendly,probably one of the most friendly we have stayed at. Food was also very good including breakfast which is included in the price of the room making it excellent value. Loved it, especially the 'greenness' and I'm not easily pleased!
