Good Pub Guide Recommended
Driving through miles of spectacularly wild, unpopulated scenery and over the famous pass of the cattle (Beallach na Ba), you may get a surprise at the number of visitors who beat a path to this remote inn, looking across the water to the Cuillin Hills on Skye. The no-nonsense, welcoming bar has a woodburning stove, exposed stone walls and upholstered pine furnishings on the stone floor; An Teallach Beallach na Ba and Isle of Skye Young Pretender on handpump and over 50 malt whiskies; pool (winter only), TV, and board games; some disabled facilities. The tables in the shoreside garden enjoy magnificent views. If you wish to stay here you might have to book well in advance. The alternative route here, along the single-track lane winding round the coast from just south of Shieldaig, has equally glorious sea loch and then sea views nearly all the way.
