SquareMeal Review of Applecross Inn

If you fancy heading off the beaten track, you can’t get much more remote than the Applecross Inn on the west coast of Scotland. The drive over the highest mountain pass in the UK delivers some jaw-droppingly beautiful views – especially the one over Applecross Bay & out to the Isle of Skye. It’s a deceptively simple-looking whitewashed pub, but the outstanding cooking, courtesy of the appropriately name owner, Judith Fish, & her team, makes it all worthwhile. Tuck in to king scallops with garlic & crispy bacon, or haddock & chips. Freshly dressed Applecross Bay crab or Applecross Bay prawns pan-fried in lemon-garlic butter make a delicious, simple alternative and, this being a pub, you won't break the bank by washing it all down with something refreshing from the wine list. Outside tables make the best of the view in the lovely shoreside garden, and there are a handful of higgledy-piggledy bedrooms for those wanting to stay over.

Mr. Jon M

27 September 2008  
A quite incredible place, and not just because of the location. Arriving late, we had trouble finding a B&B for the night – no problem, as it turned out: the landlady phoned around for us and procured one. Then I needed to phone my work, but couldn't get reception on the mobile. No problem – a small donation to the local mountain rescue people, and I could use the pub's phone. They couldn't be more welcoming. One evening spent drinking in the bar, and we'd not only sorted out a place to stay, but a sea-kayaking course for the next day and a range of walking routes. And we'd even stopped arguing. The food is exceptional – the seafood is straight out of the bay, cooked to perfection, and incredibly good value (although, unfortunately, I do live in London). My only complaint was that they had run out of lobster when I arrived (late). So only 9.5 out of ten. Oh – and the Applecross peninsular, with its views across to Skye and visiting basking sharks, is quite special too…
