Will Larter left this review about Plockton Hotel

The two pubs in Plockton are easily confused, with one being Plockton Inn and this one being Plockton Hotel. While both are clearly hotels and restaurants first, this one is slightly more pub-like, with a beer (and gin) festival in May and an outdoor drinking area with outstanding views across the harbour. There were three hand pumps at the time of my visit, with two beers from Swannay (I didn't note the other one), one a best bitter at a lowish 3.6%, the other a beast of a beer called Muckle IPA at a monsterous 6.6%, but both being sold at £4 a pint. (Three thirds are available at the same price per pint, as were my two halves.) I warmed to this pub a little more than on my visit four years ago, possibly under the influence of alcohol, but I think it deserves a six rather than my previous rather mean five.

The remains of the annual beer festival were still in evidence when we were here, but the beer menu was back to just three available across the two bars inside the hotel building. These were all pale - whatever happened to malty Scottish ales? The available ales were helpfully listed on a blackboard, colour-coded (P). At least this suggests that darker beers are occasionally available. Plockton is a lovely place but I find the two remaining pubs a little disappointing.

One of three bars in the large touristy village, it offers accommodation, plus food and drink in four separate rooms, as well as a harbour-side outdoor seating area flanked by the hotel’s trademark palm trees. Entering from the black painted exterior there is a small “snug” or dining room to the left and the main bar to the right, at the back of the main bar is another larger dining room and reached by a short corridor (or external entrance) a proper public bar with screen for showing sports. The main bar has a tartan carpet, exposed stone work with coins cemented into it and is laid out exclusively for dining, each table usually has a reserved sign on it but the staff will allow drinks-only customers to sit at a table whilst not required. One gets the feeling drinkers are expected to frequent the public bar only, the till is located there for cash sales and diners of course will pay by plastic, expect to be relieved of about £60 plus drinks for a meal for two. There are two handpumps in each bar with well kept beers from Houston. It’s mainly a tourist spot but there’s a board of village notices and the back bar gets its share of proper locals.
