The Old Inn and Waterfront Bunkhouse

CARBOST, Isle of Skye, IV47 8SR

The Old Inn and Waterfront Bunkhouse, on the shores of Loch Harport near the Talisker distillery, is a charming, 200-year-old island cottage very popular among the walking and climbing fraternity. Arrive early for a table on the waterside patio and savour the breathtaking views of the Cuillin Hills with a pint of Pinnacle ale in hand. Inside, open fires welcome winter visitors, and live Highland music is a regular feature most weekends. The menu includes daily home-cooked specials with numerous fresh fish dishes such as hot smoked salmon with lime and herb crème fraîche as a starter. Haggis, neeps and tatties strudel with whisky cream sauce; a Highland burger (beef, venison or spicy bean); or an 8oz sirloin steak and chips could follow.
