The Kinlochewe Hotel (Expand pics)
Card Courting
Quite right weedavie, it is indeed Beinn an Eoin, Baosbhein and the tail end of Beinn Dearg from Coire Mhic Fhearchair on Beinn Eighe.

I think I remember the owner you mentioned. I do vaguely remember waking up in the bar once, to find people still supping well past closing time, many years ago! It was several long days on the hills and not copious amounts of alcohol that was the cause of my sleepyness, honest!

I think the new owner has been there around 5 years now, and the quality of the ale has shot up. See the attached picture. It is a hotel with much history regarding hillwalking and mountaineering. The hotel used to have their original guest book, which had many entries by notable climbers, with details of what they were climbing or the walks they were attempting. It also held details of the first proper survey by the OS (yip the hotel is that old) and I believe, well I was told it held original accounts by Mr Colby himself. The register has sadly disappeared and not been seen in years
