The good pub guide review

Unsurprisingly, this historic climbers' hotel on the Isle of Skye sits close to some of the most testing walks in Britain, with stunning scenery in every direction. The hotel itself dates from the 19th c, but the huge main bar (aka Seumas' Bar) is modern and pine-clad: style-wise, it falls somewhere between a basic climbers' bar and the plusher, more sedate hotel side. It's spaciously open to the ceiling rafters and has geometrically laid-out dark tables and chairs; TV and board games. As well as their own-brewed Cuillin beers, including Eagle, Old Bridge and Pinnacle, they keep a guest on handpump plus an incredible display of over 400 malt whiskies at one end of the counter. It can get quite lively in here some nights, but there's also a more sedate lounge bar with leather bucket armchairs on plush carpets and a coal fire; background highland and islands music. The separate restaurant is in the hotel itself. The interesting little museum, well worth a visit, charts the history of the hotel and its famous climbers, with photographs and climbing and angling records. There are tables out in the garden and a big play area for children, which can be seen from the bar. The 21 bedrooms are comfortable, bright and modern, and there is also self-catering and bunkhouse accommodation and a campsite with caravan hook-ups during the summer months.

The good pub guide food review

Some sort of food is on offer all day: cullen skink, boozy prawn cocktail with Misty Isle gin 'bloodymary' sauce, haggis bonbons with Talisker whisky and mustard mayo, falafel and spinach burger with smoky hummus, seafood platter, venison casserole, bean and lentil chilli with nachos, and puddings such as forest berry and vanilla custard crumble cake and sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce.
