See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

The Glenuig Inn itself dates back to mid 18th century with 2 ft thick walls. Modernised with energy efficiency in mind, the building is further clad in insulation. With additional energy saving credentials including low energy lighting, and solar water heater this HAS to be one of the most energy conscious and environmentally neutral public houses in all of Scotland winning many Green tourism awards. In keeping with the "green ethos" you are encouraged not to arrive by car, but you will not be turned away if you do take the 45 minute, 35 mile drive from Fort William travelling through some of the most attractive scenery. The pub is also a mecca for bikes both muscle (preferred) and motor (accepted) powered. It is possible to travel by train to Fort William then take the diesel or "Jacobite Express" steam train to Lochailort Halt on the line to Mallaig, but tell the guard you want to alight because it is a request stop, then catching the bus, or walking the last 8 miles. At the high spring tide, arriving by kayak, the bar is but a few paces. Ten visitor moorings are also available for yachts. For divers, a compressor delivering up to 230 bar can fill up to four SCUBA tanks in 20 minutes for £4 each. A real cider and up to seven Scottish real ales on in the summer, (reducing to four during quieter times of the year) and many bottled beers. One thing you can guarantee not to find here is fizzy lager!
