I called in again on my most recent trip to the Western Isles because I had read on WhatPub that there was no longer real ale available here. That turned out not to be the case, with a solitary hand pump dispensing Inveralmond Ossian. However, this beer was in not very good nick, having a bit of a haze to it and lacking liveliness. I asked for a cheeese and onion sandwich, which arrived on a plate with side salad and a handful of crisps, but on closer examination the bread was bog standard supermarket sliced brown, not even wholemeal, and the vital ingredient (onions) was missing. I sent it back and it returned five minutes later with onions in, but these, having been chopped rather than thinly sliced, proceeded to fall out of the sandwich when I picked it up. Beer and food set me back £10.50, not the best value for a rather substandard repast.

A very nicely modernised hotel in a good-looking building at the end of a short track that is well signposted off the main road on the eastern part of North Uist. The entrance is off a yard around the back of the building, with a glass-walled reception area. The friendly receptionist soon converted to bar person when I asked about a beer - a quick check to make sure it was after 10am (it was 10:45) and she led the way to the bar. This is a delightful, intimate room with a doorway leading down a couple of steps to an extension which has a more modern feel, including original art works mostly for sale, and a view out to the garden where the distant hills are framed by trees, a rarity themselves in these parts. Back to the bar, where the bar counter presented the delicious sight of a solitary hand pump offering Orkney Corncrake Ale. I don't normally drink at this time of day, and when I'm cycling I usually drink halves, but I couldn't resist a morning pint of this gorgeous beer - after the Scottish keg beers I'd drunk the previous day, any decent real ale would have elicited this response, I believe, but this beer was in excellent condition and was a real pleasure to drink.

Looking in more detail at the room, there's a stuffed red deer at one end, and a fireplace made of shells at the other, which are possibly neither of them in the best possible taste, but when you've got a pint of very good real ale in your hands (even at £4 a pint), this sort of quibbly, nit-picking reviewing tends to go out of the window. Interestingly, the keg offerings on the bar here are national brands rather than Scottish, and even more interestingly there are half a dozen different bottled beers from three or four Scottish breweries (see the shelf above the door behind the bar for the range available). Although I haven't tried the food or accommodation here, the setting is superb and everything seems to be to the highest quality, so I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone in search of a decent beer, especially if it's past 10am.
