From traditional inns to historic whisky bars, there’s something for all tastes and locations. Here we take a look at some of Scotland’s cosiest country pubs.
1. Clachaig Inn, Glencoe
This Glencoe pub is surrounded by stunning hills that dominate the landscape, but inside the pub couldn’t be cosier. In the main bar, there’s a fireplace with log-lined walls, and it serves a wide range of real ales and whiskies.

2. Applecross Inn, Strathcarron
The multi-award winning Inn has become something of an institution for anyone visiting the area and it’s easy to see why. It not only offers a perfect escape from everyday stresses, it also has some utterly breathtaking views.

3. The Loch Lomond Arms Hotel, Luss
Enjoy a drink by the fire in this cosy bar, which is part of the hotel. Set in the conservation village of Luss on the western shore of the loch, it has been welcoming visitors since the 17th century, when it was a coaching inn.

4. The Drovers Inn, Inverarnan, Loch Lomond
Arguably one of the most famous pubs in Scotland, the Drovers was established in 1705. Warm, welcoming and with its own stuffed grizzly bear the bar has a selection of beer, wine and whisky and plenty of excellent Scottish fare.
