Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

The Sunday evening set menu has some excellent choices, the food was very well cooked. There seemed to be good choices at the bar and it was an absolute pleasure to eat here

More variety and cuisine would have been better. Cleaner rooms and a comfortable seating area for guests. Smoking area not front porch is needed .

“Traditional high quality pub food”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

We stopped in Carrbridge looking for somewhere for lunch on the way through and we nearly didn't go in as the bar seemed to be very dark - however we're glad we did as we had a very good lunch at a very reasonable price.
We ate in the light and airy 'conservatory' room next to the bar and had excellent service from the staff.

“we wouldn't stay anywhere else!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We have stayed at the Cairn a number of times in Winter over the last few years, and honestly haven't found anywhere else we'd rather stay! We have always received the warmest of welcomes by all the staff, and have found the service to be excellent. The food too is amazing, and is even given the seal of approval by my 6-yr-old (who is very fussy!). Unfortunately though, our stays at the Cairn have rekindled my love for real ale, which has had disastrous effects on my waistline! All in all, a home from home...just with much better cooking and proper ale!
