Bunessan Inn

Bunessan Inn has been at the heart of our local community for 3 centuries. In 1773 whilst en route to Iona, Dr Samuel Johnson & James Boswell went ashore in search of whisky from Lachlan McLean, the inn keeper. Unfortunately for them, the whisky supplies had been drained at a funeral a few days earlier! But don’t worry, our bar is always well stocked, with a range of lager, gin and of course, whisky! 


We reopened our bar and restaurant in June 2023 following a cellar refurbishment and installation of new toilet and baby change facilities. Work has continued, largely behind the scenes, on necessary maintenance & repairs, staff accommodation and the refurbishment of guest bedrooms.


Guest accommodation and restaurant will be open from Easter 2024 to the end of the season.
