Good Pub Guide Recommended
If you wish to stay here, you'll have to book months ahead as customers from all over the world will also be wanting a place. But it will be worth it for the extraordinary drive through miles of spectacularly wild, unpopulated scenery to get there and for the inn's breathtaking backdrop towards Raasay and Skye. The alternative route, along the single-track lane winding around the coast from just south of Shieldaig, has equally glorious sea loch (and then sea) views nearly all the way. The no-nonsense, welcoming bar has a woodburning stove, exposed stone walls, upholstered pine furnishings and a stone floor; An Teallach Crofters Pale Ale and Isle of Skye Red on handpump, over 50 malt whiskies and a good, varied wine list; board games. The tables in the shoreside garden enjoy magnificent views. There's a new outdoor eating area for summer use. Some disabled facilities.
