Outstanding Skye views from charming inn reached by a dramatic drive with an enjoyably pubby bar and good fresh local food

Glenelg is the closest place on the mainland to Skye, so this delightfully placed inn has lovely views across the water to the island. It's memorably reached by a single-track road climbing dramatically past heather-blanketed slopes and mountains with spectacular views to the lochs below. Feeling a bit like a mountain cabin (and still decidedly pubby given the smartness of the rest of the place), the unpretentious carpeted bar has a big fireplace, simple tables and chairs, black and white photographs on some walls, winter pool and maybe background music; you can be sure of a warm welcome from both locals and staff. Caledonian Deuchars IPA plus beers from the new Dun brewery (in the village) on handpump. The beautifully kept garden has plenty of tables and nearby walks are lovely. Some of the bedrooms have great views, and in summer there's a little car ferry across to Skye.
