Worth the journey

With no roads in or out, it's an 18 mile hike over munros or a 7 mile sea crossing to get here - and you deserve a great pint after making the journey. Our wee pub strives to offer the best there is, and support local all the way. 

We are proud to be one of a few community-owned pubs in Scotland. Working for the benefit of Knoydart's 110-strong community, and the thousands of visitors we have each year - The Old Forge reinvests profits back in to the business and other community projects for the benefit of all.

We have started afresh with our contact details:

Please note that we are operating on a drinks-only basis for 2022 - this will allow us to complete essential refurbishment works on the kitchen. If you have made a restaurant booking with the previous owner for 2022 we are unable to honour your request and will start a new booking system once we have the kitchen operational.
