We came off the Jacobite on a cold wintry day and found this wonderful pub with its roaring fire. Staff were very friendly and attentive and their Cullen Skink is to die for.

Warm welcome, warm staff and warm food. On a chilly day, this was what we needed and the Chlachain Inn came up trumps. The Cullen Skink (thick leek and potato soup with chunks of smoked haddock) was outstanding.
