The Old Forge Pub, in Knoydart, the Scottish Highlands, happens to be the most remote pub in Britain only accessible by ferry or by an 18-mile hike which takes two full days to complete.

Knoydart, on the west coast of Scotland, is a peninsula in Lochaber, Highland.

Travellers who want to visit the tiny region will find beautiful coastline, stunning scenery and a lovely pub where they will probably enjoy the most relaxing meal.

Holidaymakers are not likely to have any issues if they don’t book a table in advance but the isolated restaurant is operating on a drinks-only basis for the 2022 season “to complete essential refurbishment works on the kitchen”.

Visitors can travel to Kinloch Hourn and from there, take a ferry to the Old Forge which sits in the village of Inverie, on the southern coast of the Knoydart peninsula.

Travellers who recently visited the Old Forge shared their thoughts on Tripadvisor with user 288adriang saying: “Visited a day after pub reopened as a community pub.

“Location is fantastic in itself and worth the trip in itself. Beer, staff and atmosphere are terrific and match the amazing location. Absolutely worth the trip!”

Another traveller, davidpC3418ZN, explained: “Good beer, friendly people, great atmosphere and stunning location.

Tripadvisor user @dorothyo342 added: “Lovely staff, superb location and good beer.

“Great experience from the community owned pub. We were too early for the restaurant’s reopening but the pub was fab.”

In the Knoydart peninsula, there are “beautiful trail paths and the last of the true wilderness,” according to another visitor.

To get to Knoydart, visitors will need to take a ferry which runs several times a day, every day.

The boats run between the Scottish fishing village of Mallaig to Inverie and Tarbet in Loch Nevis.

If holidaymakers want to explore the region by foot, there are many routes into Knoydart, with the most popular starting at Kinlochhourn, Glenfinnan or Glen Dessary.

From Kinlochhourn, most people take two days, stopping at the campsite at Barisdale.
