WE stayed there whilst walking the est highland way. The drying room was excellent which was essential as we were soaked. The food at the bar was adequate but the desserts were delicious and huge. Shop just around the corner in friendly village for essentials for lunch. It is literally on the route so NO extra paces.

we have stayed here 3 times and have enjoyed the stay each time=the only negative is that it can get a little crowded and loud in the pub=bus stop is just across the street if hikers do not want to do the trail to fort william
