Scotland’s oldest pub is the Clachan Inn, in Drymen, Lanarkshire, just north of Glasgow. Lying on the West Highland Way, this is a convenient point to break a journey to Loch Lomond. The inn was registered as a licensed pub in 1734, and distilled its own whisky. Originally fitted with a turf and thatch roof. Now fitted with a slate roof, the building is now waterproof and a cosy place to rest from long walks.
