On a recent business trip to Inverness I decided to spend a night in the Cairn. I had a nice room overlooking Main Street, and I wasn't disturbed by overnight traffic. I had several pints of beer and a very nice dinner. I met the owner and he introduced me to several local residents. I shall definitely stay in the... More

Excellent and varying range of guest ales, many of them locally-produced, can be supped in front of a real log fire, unless you wish to play snooker (which I didn't). Staff are friendly and often seem to have amazingly good memories of what I had a fortnight or so earlier when I was in previously. I generally find the locals... More

Nice coal fireplace can imagine in the winter this end of the bar would be well and truly popular. I notice from certificates on the wall the bar has been... More

Our regular eating establishment when staying in Carrbridge. Food was as good as ever! Excellent value and massive portions. The other half had the Steak pie which was huge and smelled delicious, my burger was homemade and tasted great, served with lovely rustic chips. Staff are always friendly and welcoming. Will be back to eat here in June!

An excellent pub in a great village! They have a wide variety of beers on tap including three beers from the area. The armosphere is also amazing. If you are passing through Carrbridge, don't miss out on this pub!

Brilliant hotel, great food and pub in our favourite highland village with a roaring, cosy log fire and live music! Great whiskies, real ale and banter. I recommend the Tomatin!Very near the famous bridge! Love it. Cheers :)
