19th Century travellers' inn located on the A836 and surrounded by - Nothing ! The Crask is as remote an inn as you'll find but the welcome is as warm as you'll find anywhere.

The Crask Inn may be basic and it may be the only place for miles but it's worth calling in regardless and if you wish to see the most spectacular of night sky with no light pollution, then this is the place to stay.
