Applecross InnWith attic dormers facing the sea, the whitewashed Applecross Inn is a quintessential Highland retreat—and an excellent spot for a meal throughout the day. Run by Applecross resident Judith Fish, the inn features seven well-appointed guest rooms but is best known for its restaurant, where guests can enjoy local seafood like prawns, crab, lobster, oysters, smoked salmon, and the specialty whitefish. The restaurant's focus on regional ingredients even extends to the ice cream, which comes from a nearby artisanal producer. Food is available from noon until 9 p.m., and guests can choose to eat either in the dining area, equipped with a peat-burning stove for colder months, or the outdoor beer garden in warmer weather.
