This isn't your usual pub. First to say it is in the middle of nowhere is selling it short. To find it go to the middle of nowhere, turn right down the narrow side road and keep going for 20 miles. The views are stunning. The proprietors Denise and Donald are very friendly and Donalds cooking is great. It is...

We just had time for a coffee but we stayed here 30 years ago on a bike trip and had good memories of a one off place. Currently in transition to new manager and had long gossip with both the old and new managers. Still is highly individual fun place to visit. Will not have come across anywhere quite like...

A vey welcome stop on our trip down from Tongue. Simple easy food, good value for money and new welcoming hosts who had only taken over a month before our visit. Would recommend this as a place to stop and so nice to visit somewhere authentic and interesting.

Stayed the night here on my LEJOG cycle tour last year. Fabulous place. The hosts are fantastic - the accommodation was great and the food was superb - just what a cyclist needs after a long day out from Inverness

Produce picked daily for the menu of nourishing, fresh wholesome fare - special diets catered for; good selection booze in cosiest bar with grand stove; lovely friendly place, guests and hosts; excellent place for Klibreck and stop for heading to north coast. Sustrans et al.... collie dogs adorable despite working in cold harsh climate at times. Magical atmosphere and, sadly,...

We visited on 27th December for an evening meal before spending the night in the car park in our Camper. We received a warm welcome from Mike and Kai, who remembered our names from the phone conversation I had the previous week. This place is a wonderful time warp with good home cooked food much of which came from the...

If you want a very warm welcome, local ales, fabulous food and a comfy bed then this is the place for you. If you want Scottish luxury then jog on, and keep jogging for another hundred miles till the next available place to stay. I loved this place, would stop here again, and again. My friends and I stopped in...

Visited here as part of a group cycling LEJOG with Peak Tours. The room was very clean and comfortable, the food was all home made, fresh and delicious. This place is very dated but totally unique and I enjoyed every bit of it. The staff were friendly and helpful.

I had heard of Crask but was still surprised at the quality of the hospitality here. I was allowed to park my camper van outside and use the toilets, and I enjoyed two wonderful meals. Dinner is taken together in the dining room, and guests and hosts dine together. There is a welcoming bar patronised by fishermen, hillwalkers and lands...

I stayed in the cottage and had dinner in the dining room. I found the hostel accommodation perfectly fine. Rustic, yes, but spotlessly clean, the showers in perfect working order, the central heating switched on, fresh towels and perfectly acceptable rooms and bedding. It would be a great place for a large group - there's a wood stove and the...
