A group of us enjoying a few ales in the pub, February 2005

You'll find the pub on the old riverside road up the hill from Glencoe village behind the National Trust centre with superb mountain scenery around. Around 6 real ales available including several from Scottish brewers such as Heather Fraoch Ale and Skye Brewery Red Cuillin and an impressive range of whiskies too. Good food in the restaurant (6-8pm) with a variety of snacks available at other times.

They often have live music and the bar is usually full of walkers and climbers. Most walkers and climbers who have been to Scotland will have visited or will at least know of the Clachaig Inn. They've a pool table too if you're fed up with sitting around talking about hills all the time! Annual beer festival.

They've also now got their own web pages at http://www.clachaig.com/. These pages provide all sorts of information including a What's On section. The landlord also runs another pub in Fort William called the Grog and Gruel which also sells a wide range of real ales and serves good food. I've not been there as yet.
