“Best Guinness in Tobermory”

MacDonald Arms Hotel
Ranked #14 of 24 Restaurants in Tobermory
Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed 19 September 2017

The bar area of this little hotel is a little dated with old style pub tables and chairs. There is a mix of locals and tourists who use this bar for drinks and meals. Having sampled a pint of the black stuff in the 2-3 other bars along the harbour, the Guinness in the MacDonald hotel, in my opinion, is by far the best in Tobermory.

This hotel is full of locals so I knew it would be worth a visit. The food is all home cooked and extremely cheaply priced. Good for holidaymakers on a budget

The MacDonald Arms is a landmark on Tobermory's main street and a very good watering hole. I just LOVE its carpet.....a MacDonald tartan. A good slection of ales and single malts and lots of interesting local to have a chinwag with.

It looks nothing special from the outside but the MacDonald Arms serves excellent pub grub at very reasonable prices. I waited at most 5 minutes for a table and despite being a solo diner did not feel pressured to eat quickly and leave. Full marks to them!
