Getting to Scotland’s most remote pub might take a bit of work, but it’s worth the trip for the mountain and water views. The Old Forge, located in the village of Inverie in Scotland’s Knoydart Peninsula requires either an 18-mile hike or a seven-mile ferry ride to get there.
Jean-Pierre Robinet, the pub’s current owner spoke out about the unique spot.
“It may be one of the only places in Europe where we get views like this of the mountain meeting the sea.”
The pub focuses on live music, and encourages people to bring their own instruments to play as well as pick up any that they find laying around in the pub.
All of the food that they serve from the pub is sourced from within seven miles. They have an in-house scallop driver who brings in seafood on the daily, offer seasonal dishes made with lobsters, scallops, or mussels. They also serve a venison stew and a venison burger on homemade buns.
There are no TV’s at the pub, and they turn the wi-fi off every day at 6 PM. The current owner was a customer for 20 years before ultimately buying the place.
“I saw it as a great opportunity to step out of the common world and get back to the roots of the world. It may be the best decision that I’ve ever made.”
