Our tour group stopped by for a drink after touring Eilean Donan and found it to be charming with a friendly staff. If we were staying in the area, I would have gone back.

Typically Highland Scottish decor! Patient bar-lady guided us through a couple of their Scottish whiskeys, that set us up for a straight forward meal that was tasty and filling.

We ate here for dinner as it was close to our B&B. Arrived just in time to get a table. The staff were friendly although we had to wait some time for the main course. Well situated, easy to find and could walk around Eilean...More

The desserts cost as much as our whole meal. We didn't realize this until the check came. Ridiculous!!!

We came here to eat dinner. A very cosy pub with a nice variation of drinks. It was quite crowded when we came so make sure to come early or reserve a table. The meal was lovely as was the desert.
