Nairn was our first stop in a 2-week tour of the Highlands. We stayed 3 nights as it is a very pretty place with a long beach walk and easy access to wonderful castles and historic sites. During our visit it was my husband's birthday, meriting a special dinner, but I had neglected to plan ahead! Our kind hosts at... More

I had booked into the Sunny Brae along with a group of friends. The family run hotel made us very welcome on our arrival. The sea view room was larger than chain hotels and had all the facilities required including wifi. Excellent menu choice and the food freshly prepared with fresh local produce. Wine list extensive and comfortable surroundings including... More

Wonderful little family run restaurant overlooking the sea in Nairn. The attention to detail is meticulous, the food is excellent, service is wonderful. They have a great variety of wines and whiskies and can help and advise guests. It is a good place to go for a celebration or a special dinner, so the dress code is smart/casual rather than... More

As Nairn is a fairly small town, when we picked the Sunny Brae Hotel Restaurant out of a list of local eateries in our hotel, we were not expecting what we got at Sunny Brae. The service was amazing, the food was top quality gourmet, and the view of the ocean was amazing. We came in jeans, I would definitely... More

We were in Nairn for one night and this restaurant was recommended by our guest house hosts. What a fabulous place. We felt a bit underdressed after we arrived because it is quite elegant.
