Welcome to Am Fuaran Bar
Am Fuaran is a traditional, cosy, west coast bar situated in the township of Altandhu on the Coigach peninsula approx 5 miles from the township of Achiltibuie.
"Failte gu Am Fuaran" - "welcome to the well" - There is a well at the bottom of the driveway and many years ago when people had to travel by foot they used to stop for a drink of water and a wee rest ... When the bar was built it was thought a fitting name, as it was a watering hole ...
The bar has been trading since 1976. The founders Mr Andrew Wilson and Mrs Shona Wilson built it up from a ruin which was the home of Shona's father the late Mr Alisdair Maclean. The building itself dates back to the 1800's. Old photographs adorn the bar walls and give a flavour of the wealth and richness of the history behind the place.
Now the bar is owned and run by Andrew Wilson, and Catriona and David Last. Andrew and Catriona are the children of the original founders Andrew and Shona Wilson.
We pride ourselves on using the best of local produce
specialising in local, freshly caught seafood.
Whether it is a cold winter evening or a warm summer day, the setting is perfect. You may enjoy supper by the large log burning stove, or dine outside on the decking overlooking the sea from which the seafood you can enjoy is caught. Also take in the outstanding view of "Isle Ristol" - one of the Summer Isles - and beyond.
We are open all year round but do reduce our hours in the winter months. However, if you are in the area we can always provide a meal if given a day's notice - all our produce is fresh and cooked to order.
