In pictures: Scotland's 'most remote pub' with panoramic views up for sale

A pub reputed to be the most remote in Scotland is up for sale for just under half a million pounds.

The Old Forge in Knoydart, Mallaig, which comes with a bar, restaurant and accommodation is on the market for £425,000.

The 19th century building, built in 1880, sits on Inverie Bay and Loch Nevis and is a traditional white washed single storey cottage set under a slate roof.

It includes six moorings within the loch and a registered helipad on site.

The nearest train station is Mallaig and the property has been described in The Guinness Book of World Records as “the most remote pub on mainland Britain.”

It is accessible by an 18 mile hike from Glenfinnan, or by a boat service (four per day) from Mallaig or by helicopter.

Recent work has been carried out on the building’s restaurant with the addition of a sun room overlooking the bay and the moorings chains and shackles were renewed in April last year.

Further to the pub building itself, which is attached to a cottage with an en-suite, the property also comes with a timber structure with aluminium cladding providing bunkhouse accommodation with a shower room, plus two storage sheds and a metal container.

Knoydart Peninsula covers some 80 square miles and is situated north of Mallaig in the Western Highlands of Scotland.

Home for 120 residents to the south there is Loch Nevis and to the north Loch Hourn.

Knoydart is a popular attraction for walkers, climbers and watersport enthusiasts.

The port of Mallaig is a busy fishing village including a harbour and a range of shops and hotels. It is also the base for ferry services to Skye and the Small Isles within the Outer Hebrides.
