Remote Scotland pub goes on sale

EDINBURGH, Scotland (AP) - August 13, 2010

The local is Scotland's most remote pub - with no roads in or out. Located on the Knoydart Peninsula in the West Highlands, the thirsty must hike about 18 miles (29 kilometers) from the nearest road or travel seven miles (11 kilometers) across the sea loch from the town of Mallaig.

Owners Ian and Jackie Robertson are retiring and seeking offers starting at 790,000 pounds (US$1.2 million).

Jackie Robertson said Thursday she's enjoyed the pub, which she describes as ideally situated for those who want to get away from it all.

But she says it's time "to stop pouring pints and start drinking them."
