Visited brewery for the tour. Malki (the alki) was both knowledgable and entertaining. It costs £5 but for that you get a history of the brewery, a look at the brewing process and tasting of their range of beers. Would recommend for adults.

On a trip to Aviemore we went to the brewery. We learned about the process of brewing and more importantly got lots of free samples. The tour guide Malky was very entertaining and knowledgable. Would recommend

After a day of exploring the Caringorms, we stopped in to the Cairngorm Brewery for a tasting. Although they are open until 5:30pm, tastings stop after 5pm. All of the staff seemed occupied with administrative and restocking duties, so we kind of had to wander...More
