The Poolewe Hotel
In Dixon's Gairloch (1886) he wrote about this hotel as follows:- "Compared with the Gairloch, Loch Maree, and Kenlochewe hotels, it yields but humble accommodation. Some improvements are being effected, and I believe even ladies find the house comfortable enough. Mr A. Mclennan carries on a posting business. Boats can be hired for sea-fishing in Loch Ewe, and trout-fishing can generally be had on some fresh-water lochs"
Don't tell the moderator but it is also the local pub. Local band "Steam Puddings" playing on Saturday, so live music on occasions. It has been extended recently Dixon would probably be very pleased with the accommodation now!
