Just a classic remote UK pub as an oasis in stunning wilderness. We got squeezed in despite a group cyclist booking coming soon. Had coffee & home produced cake, both of which were excellent. Note no real ale, but not an issue when driving. Excellent service from staff juggling many balls. Its not a smartly finished pub, but that’s the whole charm of it. And long may it remain so.

What a lovely place! We stopped here for coffee after finding that the hotel in Altnaharra wasn’t open. We had great coffee and delicious homemade cakes, and sat outside in the sunshine. I just wish we could have stayed for lunch but we had a long journey ahead.

We had not intended stopping but decided at the last minute to have a lunch snack here on the road from Lairg to Tongue . Very solitary but with amazing views of the Highland wilderness we ordered a toastie each . It was good but took a long time to come ( some bikers just ahead of us ) . The innkeepers dog kept pestering us for food which was very annoying hence only a 3 …

Really quirky place in the middle of knowhere. We had a lovely evening by the fire. Dinner was served around a large dinning room table with other guests. The food was great although the fish pie was more potato than fish. Excellent value for money.

This Autumn, my partner and I stopped at The Crask Inn for a few pints and a warm up after wild camping for several days. Denise was so kind to us, keeping the fire stoked, providing us with delicious food and great conversation. She went above and beyond to help us out when she didn't have to. Highly recommend!

I wrote a review before but it hasn’t appeared. I stayed in July. I have stayed a few times over the years. Second time under this ownership. Very different experiences but both good. The owners 39 years ago were a bit rough and ready and actually from Aldershot. They allowed me to sleep in the bar as they were full. This management is much better organised and the evening meals are superb. Its also good value and you always have good company Thank you Jim

I phoned a couple of weeks prior to arriving on a Saturday evening to book an meal for two and ask if it was OK to camp and have a shower. Positive response so no concerns. Arrived on bicycles 45 mins prior to the arranged sit down meal (£17 for three courses). So we set up our tents and went to the bar to have a beer and sit down for meal. We also asked when we could shower and were told it should be OK after the meal..... Food was good. We settled the bill after asking to pay for the camping, we were told no charge but any contribution would be welcomed, I added £13 to the bill for shower use etc as a contribution. After eating I was directed to another building where the shower was. All excellent after a long day cycling. I was also told it would be OK to use these facilities in the morning. In the morning whilst using the facilities I was abused by a member of the Crask Inn who made it very clear that I should not be using the facilities. Really bad experience and would not wish that on anyone. Not very Christian in my opinion.

Response from Douglas Campbell, General Manager at Crask Inn
Responded 13 Sept 2021
We are glad you enjoyed the meal. The cost of our 3 course dinner is £20 a head We are sorry that there was a misunderstanding probably related to the requirement for us to wear masks at all times . Our shower has not been available to those who chhose to camp on our lawn during Covid restrictions. We are not an official campsite so just ask for a donation. We require to limit the access to out building to keep our staff who work there safe during the day but allow access to the Inn toilets throughout your stay.

This was our second visit to this unique inn set in the flow country. This was a family visit ( representing a number of generations ) to climb Ben Hope , the most northerly Munro in Scotland . The Crask is such a great place to stay for either climbing mountains or visiting the stunning North Coast of Scotland .Denise and Douglas serve just the kind of food to sustain you for such activities , ales to quench your thirst and the night sky can provide great sights of the Milky Way !

We spotted this pub as we were driving to Lairg from tongue. So we decided to stop! It’s a beautiful little pub with friendly staff and a lovely little dog ‘brandy’ who the children loved. Great food, at a good price. Would highly recommend a visit!

This has revived my faith in Highland Hostelries. After my miserable experience in The Slaters Arms, Cannich, I had thought the Highlands had stepped back into the eighties. Bad food overpriced and bad service. The Crask has really cheered me up. Lovely food ( lunchtime Brie and cranberry toastie served with a very crisp and fresh salad), great beer (Black Isle brewery) and decent service. For such a remote location too. Well worth going out your way to visit.
