Specialising in freshly landed local seafood, Highland game produce, Scottish real ales and live folk music, The Old Inn is below the majestic Torridon Mountains, just inland from Gairloch's little harbour. Superb walks to secluded bays and wooded crags, and ravishing views across to Skye and the outer islands abound. Owner Alastair Pearson brews several beers on site, as well as stocking some from other Scottish micros. Specialising in local seafood and game, the pub also smokes its own meats, fish and cheese, and bread is baked in-house. Start with a seafood chowder featuring scallops, prawns, local white fish and topped with a rouille crouton and grated cheese, followed by haggis cairn, neeps, potatoes, Drambuie cream and oatcakes; or the steak and ale hotpot. Specials might well include seafood risotto; langoustine and calamari platter; venison steak; and home-made game casserole. Cath's award-winning clootie dumpling – a rich whisky flavoured fruit pudding – makes for a rewarding dessert. There are always vegetarian and vegan dishes available and special dietary requirements can be catered for.
