I ate here when hill walking in Knoydart. The meals are delicious and the staff friendly and helpful. However, it does not open until 5.00p.m. which means it's not open for lunch etc.

A pub in a great location but not fulfilling it's potential. The atmosphere was flat, the choice of food was very limited and the windows were dirty. We were told booking was essential even though the pub was almost empty. I visited here 11 years...More
