Whether you desire real ale, craft beer or the best in spirits and wine. The Clachan Inn has an abundant range to satisfy the most discerning taste from a unfined & unfiltered hoppy beer to an Aperol spritz.  A varied selection of Scottish Gin & Malt Whisky are also available.  'We are proud to have been featured for many consecutive years in CAMRA's good beer guide'.


From freshly ground flat coffee to cappuccino there’s a blend to suit your taste. Enjoy it by the open fire whilst playing one of the traditional board games or indulging in your favourite book.

Well-behaved dogs are welcome in the bar area and selected accommodation.
