"There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about."

Community
Ownership

The Old Forge pub is situated in the small village of Inverie on the south shore of the Knoydart peninsula. The building started its life as a smiddy's forge, and over the years developed in to a workers social club and then on to the pub we know and love today.

 

The pub went up for sale in 2021, and after some discussion amongst the locals we decided to go for community-ownership bid. The Old Forge Community Benefit Society Ltd was formed and a group of 9 dedicated local volunteers took the project forward, and after 14 months of hard graft our dream became a reality - you can read the full story here

 

On 28th March 2022 the keys for the Forge were handed to the community - and now the hard work really begins! We have big plans over the next couple of years including major refurbishment projects, and we are so excited to welcome back friends old and new to enjoy a pint in our wee pub. 

Community is at the heart of everything we do here, and you don't have to live on Knoydart to be a part of that. Come along, get the craic, and join the pub family - we'd love to see you.
