Popped in here for a pint while waiting for the ferry back to Mull. An excellent location after a stunning time on Iona. Pleasant bar but with also some good seating outside. Was charged £9.80 for two pints, Really?

OK, it is often busy, as it is the closest eatery to the ferry, so loads of folks may arrive around lunchtime - so just make sure to get ahead of them. But you will likely get whatever food you are looking for here. We...More
