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 will be opening on a drinks-only basis for the time being - this will allow us to complete essential refurbishment works on the kitchen. If you have made a restaurant booking for 2022 please note that regardless of when in the year it is, we have decided to cancel all reservations and start a fresh booking system once we have the kitchen ready so as not to disappoint anyone if renovations take a while.
