Aultguish Hotel

This postcard shows Aultguish Hotel, Garve

The name Aultguish is from the Gaelic "allt ghiuthais" meaning fir burn. This famous inn is situated at the eastern end of Loch Glascarnoch on the main road from Dingwall to Ullapool, 6 miles north of Garve. Originally the inn was a stopping place for drovers taking cattle to the markets in the south. Later it also became a staging post for coaches travelling between Garve and Ullapool. Much enlarged and modernised the hotel is still a popular place to stop on this lonely road and its setting amid spectacular scenery makes it a favourite base for walkers and climbers.
