The well-known pub, which is named after the legendary Skye terrier, is a favourite for local residents and tourists alike.

Occupying the ground floor of a row of Georgian houses and constructed in 1722, the building has been restored with many traditional features retained and some modern touches added. 

Customers will be able to enjoy a spacious new bar area, while seating capacity has been doubled. Live musicians will be offered every Friday and Saturday evening.
