“Location, Location, Location” is in many cases an overused phrase but not in this case. Glenuig Inn occupies a stunning position in an area noted for its beautiful scenery on the Sound of Arisaig. With views to Loch Nan Uamh, from where Bonnie Prince Charlie departed for Skye, and out to the Small Isles of Rhum, Eigg and Muck with Syke in the distance. It has something for everyone; sea-kayaking, sailing, diving, walking, golf, mountaineering, skiing, fishing, cycling, motor biking, wildlife spotting, painting and photography; and has many award accolades for business and environmental sustainability.

Although offering the quality of life often sought after by those wishing seclusion and privacy, Glenuig Inn is in an accessible part of the West Highlands; it is only a short distance from the well-known “Road to the Isles” which links Fort William and Mallaig. There is a regular train service to London via Fort William and is not far from Glenfinnan with its viaduct and monument overlooking Loch Shiel. In the summer the Jacobite Steam train travels close by twice a day, a popular tourist activity made famous by the Harry Potter films.

Glenuig Inn is Scotland’s exemplar green Inn, leading the way in sustainable tourism and has twice been awarded the prestigious VIBES Micro Business Award. Glenuig Inn serves great food which is as natural, healthy, local and organic as possible and is open 365 days a year with no seasonal reduction in service and is becoming a food destination in its own right. As a Gold Award holder from the Green Tourism Business Scheme continuously since 2011, Glenuig Inn has sustainability at its core. It has reduced its carbon emissions to zero and uses 100% renewable energy with capacity from existing technology for the proposed new building. Going beyond compliance, there is no food waste or food contaminated organic waste leaving the premises as it is sterilised and dried before being used as part of the biomass alongside the wood pellets. It was voted Best Low Carbon Business in the Highland Business Awards 2015 and more recently a finalist in the 2018 European Business Awards for the Environment.

In 2007 when it was purchased by the current owner, the vision was that environmental sustainability should be at the forefront of the business. The aim to was demonstrate that it was possible to run a leisure and tourism business efficiently and profitability with minimal environmental footprint. The result being that both costs and environmental impact are reduced and winter energy costs are less than those in the summer.

The origins of the Glenuig Inn are believed to date from the mid-18th century – probably an older drover’s inn – and still retains much of its traditional country inn charm although with a definite 21st century slant. It provides appealing charm not only to the wide local community but to the wide range of visitors to the locality.
