Like whisky? Like regular and impromptu live traditional Scottish folk music? Yes, then off to the Ben Nevis Pub you go then! This wee place with its stone walls, cosy fire and its contemporary Bothy* feel, is a little piece of the Highlands and Islands in the city.
There is literally ten feet of whisky behind the bar with shelves and shelves containing hundreds to choose from. And, if you don’t know your Islay whiskies from your Speyside, Highland or Lowland ones, no fear! The very friendly bar staff are on hand to advise your palette and your sore ‘heid’ the next morning.
Every Wednesday night there is live Scottish folk music in the pub, but also spontaneous sessions that can happen at any time, particularly at the weekends and definitely during the Celtic Connections music festival, (Jan-Feb), when there is a plethora of folk musicians hot hoofing it around the town!
Oh! and Winnie the Dog loves it too!
Spring is here, the afternoons are brighter and the Ben Nevis is the perfect place to sample a hazy afternoon with a dram….or three doon Finnestoun way!
