Good Pub Guide Recommended

Isolated pub on famously scenic route on west coast, with particularly friendly welcome, real ales and good seafood; bedrooms

Even though getting to this remote little gem is quite an experience, it's always packed with customers from all over the world and the atmosphere remains lively and genuinely friendly. The exhilarating west coast drive to reach the inn is over the Bealach na Bà (Pass of the Cattle) and is one of the highest in Britain; do not attempt it in bad weather. 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 bar has a woodburning stove, exposed-stone walls, upholstered pine furnishings and a stone floor. There's Applecross Inner Sound and Sanctuary on handpump, over 50 malt whiskies, 25 gins, ten rums and a good, varied wine list (all are available by the glass); background music and board games. Tables in the shoreside garden enjoy magnificent views and there's an outdoor eating area for summer use and an artisan food truck selling fish and chips and local ice-cream. If you wish to stay here in one of the seven bedrooms, you'll have to book months ahead. Some disabled facilities.
