Typical Scottish Pub with nice staff and very good food. Also this pub hosts weekly the elderly of the village of Fort Augustus.

Popped in for a bar lunch, My partner enjoyed the macaroni. I had the steak pie which was very tasty.. Atmosphere was good, bar staff were helpful, just a pity the weather wasn't as good as the food.

I only know this pub from a summer visit when it was mega busy. Parking is an issue as there are only about 6 spaces on the narrow one way street outside the pub. There is a pay and display public car park in the village... More
