Food & Drink


Enjoy the country pub atmosphere in our traditional bar with real log fire, our sun-lounge, or outside on a fine day.

Food and drink in the sun

Bar lunches and suppers are served from 12 noon to 2.15pm and 6pm to 8.15pm .

Our menu focuses on the best local produce, changing seasonally to offer rustic, freshly cooked classic bar meals and often the Chef will be inspired by some exceptional local ingredients when offered by the Cairngorm landscape.

Please see our menu.


Our friendly bar is popular with locals and tourists alike. An ideal place to wind down after an active day.

Cairn Hotel bar

Enjoy our wide range of malt whiskies. On a winter evening warm your feet in front of the log fire and your inside with a local malt.

Bar seating area with log fire

We also offer a range of wines, spirits, lager and beers. Real ale is supplied from a range of Scottish breweries. We are proud to be listed in the CAMRA Good Beer guide 2010 and the CAMRA Aviemore & Cairngorms Pub of the Year 2010.

We always feature draught Ale from our local breweries, the Black Isle Brewery and the Cairngorm Brewery, and usually a guest Ale from Skye, Orkney or beyond.


We are reviewed on the following sites:

Fancy A Pint - "...more often than not, going to the pub can often be a pretty dismal experience. Happily, the Cairn Hotel bucks this trend, it would be a top boozer anywhere."

Trip Advisor - Visitor reviews: "A Highland gem", "Great hotel, friendly staff”, "Great little place”.
