Modern Wetherspoons moving away from the standard boring layout to a little more thought.

This is a modern Spoons that takes up the ground floor of the town Travelodge. It's an open plan room with a weird striped decor that extends back a fair way. Despite there being a Travelodge above they have made the toilets here into a training exercise for the tedious ascent of Ben Nevis.
I was thinking of eating here but the appearance of a fat man wearing a bright red kilt put me off the idea.
The beer choice from the ten hand pumps was quite disappointing. There were three available soon, two unused, a cider which was in the fridge, Deuchars, Bowman Quiver, Elgood's Greyhound and Orkney Dark Island. The two Scottish beers were both taken from the national list rather than local micros. I went for the Dark Island and Greyhound (£2.35) which were in decent nick.
This one is GBG 2017 listed but I didn't really rate it on the day.

Modern, wood-heavy JDW cleverly situated at the new official end of the West Highland Way meaning that 90% of thirsty walkers head straight here to slake their thirst and fill their bellies. Done quite well, with some stylized wood/MDF mountain range cuttings on the walls and glass room dividers with etched Ben Nevis contours. As mentioned, there is some Gaelic signage to be found. Two banks of five pumps, with nine on. A whole set of Scottish ales on the nearest pumps to the entrance and my two pints from Black Wolf were in great shape. Pretty good for a JDW. 7.5
