It's always a bit of a gamble going into pubs in seaside, or in this case lochside, resorts. This was better than expected, a long deep bar fronted by a dining area and accessed arch. There's a vast array of fonts with a solitary hand pump tucked away in a corner selling local ale from the An Teallach brewery. It's a traditional wooden bar with rails for both elbows and feet, plus hooks for your coat, umbrella or handbag. Very civilised.

In the drinking area around the bar there were leather upholstered stools and bench seating. There was Indie pop on the CD player - could have been worse, I suppose - and the rear part of the pub had a pool table and TV showing Sky sports.

A whitewashed, contemporary looking pub down a dead end road overlooking the loch. Inside it’s a single room affair, with the front half being very much reserved for diners – not only were all tables laid up for food, but there was a “please wait here to be seated” sign as you entered.

The rear half has in some ways a village club feel to it with it’s brown/orange tiled floor and U-shaped seating pods around the perimeter with black leatherette bench seating. The back part of this half is given over to various sports, such as a pool table and darts. There is also a plasma on the wall and a couple of fruit machines.

The walls are white plasterwork, and there are various black and white photos. The highlight of the pub, on a nice day at least, is the outside benches just over the road that have a fantastic view over the loch to the mountains at the far end. There are separate “pub grub” and restaurant menus available.

The only real ale on tap was the local Suilven, and the solitary cider was Strongbow, unfortunately.
