The Most Remote Pub in Britain

July 15, 2008

After rounding Ardnamurchan Point we sailed up through the “Small Isles” which is the collective name given to Eigg, Rum and Muck and then passed Mallaig before tuning into Loch Nevis.

The little hamlet of Inverie lies on the northern shore of the Loch and is so remote that there isn’t actually a road to it.

It is also the site of the “Old Forge” pub, which provides mooring buoys for any cruisers who get that far.

I think this is the first time I have ever called up a pub on the VHF in Britain, unlike the Caribbean where everyone seems to have got the VHF habit before mobile phones were invented.
