On our honeymoon in this beautiful part of Scotland out of season, its difficult to find places open to eat. We were out for a drive around this stunning coigach peninsula and stopped by at the Am Fuaran Bar for lunch. What a warm and welcoming place, full of history and charm. We chatted with the proprietors, Andrew and Catriona, a hospitable brother and sister duo who were brought up in the area. The walls were adorned with generations of knowledge about the family and the building - you got a real sense of community from this place, the heartbeat of it. We had the whole place to ourselves and it was very inviting and relaxing. Equally, you could imagine how welcoming this place would be if busy in the height of the season. When visiting the West Coast of Scotland its a must to sample the seafood so we both ordered good old fish and chips. Its was fantastic. The chunky haddock fish was beautifully fresh, like it had just jumped out the sea and the batter was lovely and crispy - not like some woolly blankets that are common in lesser establishments. The chips were hand cut and fluffy and it was served with side salad and fresh real vegetables (not frozen). Being in a remote location - one would understand being served the likes of frozen veg but not here. This standard of food is exceptional and all credit to Andrew and Catriona. We will definately be back!

Altandhu is some 22 miles from Ullapool, mostly along a single-track road. If you don't know it's here, Am Fuaran is an unexpected oasis. It is a bar-restaurant run in conjunction with a campsite across the road. They serve good locally sourced produce at reasonable prices, considering the cost of transporting anything from anywhere!

The front bar can be a little off-putting if the locals are "in residence", and the whole place is a little dark due to the black shiny floor, but if you are lucky enough to visit on a fine day and sit on the terrace overlooking the Summer Isles, it would be idyllic.

We visited this bar with a large family group in August 2013. The staff were friendly and accommodating, the food was great and service quick and efficient. The use of locally caught seafood in the menu gives you the feeling that you are helping support the local community beyond the bar itself.

The seafood was fresh and cooked perfectly. A great relaxing chilled out meal with the family.

It is almost two months since we ate at the Am Fuaran and the memories are still great. You go to a pub and get food that matches the best of restaurants. Nothing complicated but all fresh ingredients cooked to perfection.
