This review is taken from the 2011 edition.
This multi-award winning inn is well worth the drive to get here. And what a drive it is across the epic, gasket-bursting Bealach na Ba. Very much the heart of the tiny coastal community, the Applecross Inn is always alive with gregarious locals and spellbound visitors. Resisting the tempting ping of the microwave the emphasis is on local produce with seafood a highlight both on the main menu and the daily changing specials board. Don’t be fooled by the rather expensive sounding ‘Applecross Prawns’ as these are actually huge local langoustines as fresh as can be. Then there is the local lobster, cooked simply and left for you to spend the rest of the night tackling. Or maybe just enjoy a pint of squat lobster tails - the moreish pistachios of the shellfish world. Red meat lovers are not left out with venison from the Applecross Estate and everyone gets to share the views with a digestif best enjoyed outside with a backdrop of the sun melting over the unmistakable Cuillin ridge across the shellfish rich waters on Skye.
