ACHILTIBUIE, nr Ullapool, IV26 2YG
With its wonderful views of Badentarbat Bay and the Summer Isles, this highly praised hotel is a comforting presence in a truly beautiful place. Real ales come from the An Teallach brewery on a croft a few miles to the south at Dundonnell, and the seafood is equally local, and couldn't be fresher - scallops and lobster come from the bay itself. The bar menu might feature Cullen skink and fish pie, as well as the amazing seafood platters, but there are plenty of alternatives, including wild mushroom risotto; home-made beef burgers; or cottage pie. Desserts might include sticky toffee pudding or chocolate brownie with chocolate ice cream and chocolate sauce. The informal all-day bar serves freshly ground coffee, snacks, lunch, afternoon tea and evening meals, and there's formal dining as well, in the elegant candlelit restaurant. Don't forget that the weather up here can be somewhat changeable, so come prepared, and remember something to deter the midges that the Highlands host from late spring to late summer.
