Applecross Inn, Applecross

Shore Street
Applecross , Scotland

Tel: 44 1520 744262's insider take:

Applecross, on the west coast directly across from the Isle of Skye, is a long way from anywhere. One approach involves negotiating the hair-raisingly steep Bealach-na-Ba road. It's worth it. Looking out over Applecross Bay to Raasay and beyond that to Skye, the location is breathtaking, especially at sunset. The inn is not the place for silver service and Riedel glassware. Instead there is a lively bar with a good range of malts and simply presented fresh seafood hoisted from the bay. Sitting in the beer garden by the water with a pint pot of squat lobster tails and a bottle of sauvignon blanc is the sort of experience that encourages you to toss your PDA in the water and go native.

Open daily 12 to 9 pm.
