Whisky lovers will certainly enjoy our whisky list which has around 90 single malt whiskies - some of which are quite rare. We are fortunate to have one of the best sea views in Nairn.

“Nice Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

As a vegetarian, options in Scotland are limited. Bandstand really came through with excellent service and food. I had a soup to start, pasta with mushroom for an entree, and sticky toffee pudding, all of which were tasty. There is a nice view as a bonus!
