The Old Forge

The Old Forge Inverie Knoydart Mallaig PH41 4PL 01687 462 267

We say

There are no roads in or out of the iconic Old Forge's village of Knoydart, which certainly helps put off drunk drivers, and also aids its role as the heart of the local community. Indeed, it's the most remote pub on the British mainland, accessible on foot or by boat across lochs Heaven and Hell – and you will be welcomed in like a local. On tap are some decent Scottish ales and there's a menu of decent pub grub; the sea views are free.
