Friendly atmosphere and a good selection of drinks and food. Does have Real Ale, but only one tap on due to usage issues. Worth a visit.

An ok pub centrally located in Inverness. The prices are reasonable but to be honest, we found it to be a little boring. We enjoyed other places more but it’s worth a look if you are in Inverness.

We stopped in for a beer because we saw a sign advertising traditional Scottish music. The music didn't start until much later than the advertised time, but we just hung out in the back and had a few beers. This is definitely a dive bar,...More

We attended Gellions for the finishing party of the Inverness or Bust Rally. We had over 40 people attend the evening and they all had a great time. The staff were really friendly and the live music was terrific. We hope to return soon.
