About
The Pine Marten Bar and Scran is lovely small alpine style bar and café with a very friendly atmosphere, in the heart of the Cairngorm National Park. Live music most Friday and Saturday nights and many other mid week nights during school holidays. Great local beers and a wide selection of Scottish Whisky and Gin. Soft drinks and teas, coffees and hot chocolate available. The adjoining little shop is well stocked with grocery essentials, fresh bread, milk, sandwiches and snacks, chocolate, fudge, ice creams, cold drinks, bottles/cans of beer, BBQ goods etc etc. The shop is open from 9.00am everyday during the main seasons. The bar is open and serves alcohol from 11.00am till late. The Café is open for breakfast and lunch from 9am - 4pm then 5pm -7.45 for dinner. Glenmore is a great place to be - lots of cycling, walking, skiing (winter!), watersports or general relaxing. Come and visit us - we are very friendly.

Good for drinks but food is average and overpriced
Jun 2021
Great beers on tap, really cool atmosphere, and friendly staff. Burgers are well overpriced though and not worth the money. £12 for a chips and burger with a bland patty that tastes like one of those bulk frozen buys is a bit steep. Surely it doesn't require much more effort/cost to make a fresh burger patty?

Lunch

Visited for lunch today with a small family. Food and drinks were excellent, decent portion sizes, the staff were attentive and the prices were reasonable. Only disappointment was that we didn’t see any red squirrels. Maybe next time

Perfect pint, location and food
Jun 2021 • Family
Outstanding service, food, beer and bikes! We hired bikes from the rental shop, also at the same venue. The bikes were fab, even perfectly sized Frog bike for my daughter. We ate here at the end of the day, sitting out on the balcony. Perfect view of mountains and woods. Pints of stout from the local brewery went down a treat, food was very satisfying after a very active day. Katie was running to serve tables as it was so busy, but still managed to look after us very well. This place is popular with good reason, a great venue for food and drinks. Thank you Katie and your team.

Amazing experience.
May 2021 • Couples
Would just like to say again a massive thank you to all staff. Stayed for 3 nights and what a blast me and my partner had, second time staying and loved it just as much as the first time. The cabins are just gorgeous and cosy, the food wow amazing!!we couldn't get enough. Would love to name each member of bar staff and say how great you all were but unfortunately we only got one. Shaun is an absolute delight and what a credit to your team honestly never laughed so much with a waiter. Scott and Kate the owners are wonderful and so lovely they both make sure you get a warm welcome and nothing is too much for them. Will definitely be back soon.

Great scran and welcoming atmosphere!

Lovely little cafe/bar with friendly and welcoming staff. The food is delicious and the location is just stunning. The wild birds provide a spot of entertainment as they visit the various feeding stations dotted around the tree house.

I had my first proper meal here for nearly a week, as was daft enough to have braces on 5 days before we stayed here 🙈. My burger was fantastic, couldn't have asked for a better re-introduction to real food! I thoroughly enjoyed it. Special shout out to the halloumi fries and chutney too, yum!

Wouldn't hesitate to pay another visit when we visit the Cairngorms again!

Cracking wee pub
Apr 2021
Located close to loch Morlich
The Pine Martin is a cracking wee pub.
Basic menu but very good food.
They have invested in a new outside area inline with Covid rules, which just complements to the style of the Pine Marten.
Very friendly staff.

One negative is the could do with a better heater in the outside bar, the existing one is way to Smokey, not great when staying in a Motorhome and all your clothes smell of smoke.

There was a few people that was there that said if it was a bit warmer they would of stayed for more drinks.
Apart from that great place and friendly atmosphere.

Great scran, good vibes
Apr 2021 • Couples
Excellent place to eat and chill. Reminiscent of some of the best alpine ski lodges out there. One of the best burgers I've had and a display of lively wild birds to entertain. 100% recommend if you are in the area!

Nacho Wars
Nov 2020 • Couples
Having another brilliant stay at the Treehouse next to and by The Pinemartin Bar and Scran. If you haven’t stayed here give it try and it’s literally 1 minute from the great pub and 2 minutes from the beach. Beats any hotel stay.

Into the food - service is always great from all staff and the menu is made up of a choice of fresh healthy alternative combined with bar snack, which are also freshly made.

When to start - halloumi fries are great and the nachos - well that’s where they excel in snacks !!

Crispy nachos with the right amount of cheese, home made guacamole and always fresh and well sourced sour cream - great to scoop from the crispy nachos.

Nacho wars - soggy or crispy - crispy every time and excellent for scooping up the fresh sides.

Winner winner nacho dinner at the Pinemartin Bar and best Scran !
