    We are just back from Applecross in the Torridon mountains. Fantastic pub there with great sea food. Need a little nerve on the roads in and out but good fun. Also Badachro on the Gairloch. More great sea food. No campsite here though. We wild camped in car park. Best beach in UK at Red Point.

    If you are after music then look at the boards outside or ask at any tourist information centre.

    You will find as usual that the locals are the best for advice, speak to them, despite the accent they are very friendly. (y) Now you will find one that isn't. :whistle:

    We love the Drover's Inn, just off the A82 before (travelling north to) Crianlarich. It's cosy, good food too. There is a campsite nearby, Beinglas, but I think they may have weight restrictions on their little bridge.

    just about any Scottish pub will do that..

    be prepared to drink copious amounts of falling down juice followed by a street fight ..

    Indeed. A typical Scottish pub actually serves crap beer, is inhabited by xenophobes and has all the atmosphere of a public lavatory.

    You don't want typical, you want nice pubs. ;-)
