For my sister’s 40th birthday she wanted to go climb Buachaille Etive Beag. The previous year she had gone up to Glencoe and had a meal at the Clachaig Inn, and really wanted to stay there after the walk. Being a fair weather walker I happily agreed to go do the walk and then stay at the Inn, opting out...

I asked for a room with a view, and we certainly got it beautiful, however the smell of raw sewage was terrible. The reception was rather frosty from an irritable middle aged woman, She seemed to thaw across our time there but first impressions count. The food was nice of a little limited (didn't try any starters as they weren't...

This is a great old location with some newer buildings. The rooms were warm and comfortable (it was cold outside). I liked having a place to eat in the hotel. The breakfast was very good and so much of it. And the Signal Rock trail starts in the parking lot.

Was recently hiking with a friend of mine in the area and stopped off here for food after. The food was divine, the portions were good and the mashed potoato/mixed veg was unreal, as was the sticky toffee pudding!!! Highly recommend - I'll be back to stay next time!

Decided to stay here for one night quite unexpectedly while in the area. Absolutely brilliant. The ambiance of the Clachaig is first class. Our room was clean, comfortable and the bathroom spotless. We ate here and the food was lovely. So tasty!! The prices are great too. Breakfast in the morning was lovely and very filling. Loved the entertainment at...

After climbing Ben Nevis via the Carn Mor Dearg Arête there was nowhere to go but the Clachaig. I had venison pie with mash and gravy for about £14 (this was one of the more expensive dishes - most were £10-11) and the Sticky Toffee Pudding for afters. The food was simply outstanding. The staff were really friendly and the...

Stopped off for lunch after walking in Glencoe. Went into the Boots Bar. Roaring fire and very warm welcome from excellent bar staff. Great selection of food, ales and wines. Food was amazing. Had the Highland Game Pie which was superb! All in all highly recommended. Will definitely be back.

The GOOD - the location and layout. Looks really nice from the outside. The views from outside the inn. The helpful lady at reception. The Boots Bar. The BAD - horrible, depressing, tiny, dirty rooms along an equally depressing corridor. Noise from the restaurants and kitchens in our rooms. Reception looks like a messy ticket booth. Filthy carpets everywhere. Cramped...

Some friendly and helpful staff here, but that's where the good stuff about the Clachaig ends. If this place charged half what it does for the very, very average accommodation and food it might be some kind of value, but it doesn't - it charges far too much for shabby rooms and cash n' carry food. It would be nice...
