We had dinner here 2 nights in a row. Food and service was fantastic. Met some amazing people while here. Would definitely return when next in Skye.

Friendly atmosphere, decent food. If you haven't already tried haggis, do it - surprisingly good. Here you can get good one as appetizer with whiskey.

We visited with our 3 Border Collies. They were offered a drink even before we were! The dogs approved of this level of attention! The food was good pub grub and the choice of local beers was great.
