Food and drink

mcFor breakfast and lunch by far the best place (and in my humble opinion the best cafe in the Highlands) is The Mountain Cafe for its refreshing menu and no skimping on quality. Be warned queues are likely…but its well worth it!

If you are eating out we highly recommend the Old Bridge Inn, a fine pub with good food and regular music.  Anderson’s in Boat of Garten, a short drive away, does fantastic pies and a range of other tasty treats including ice cream.

The Old School Shop at Rothiemurchus sells meat from the estate, has the best selection of whisky and wine in the area and good local cheeses.

Right next door to us is the well-known Inshriach Alpine Nursery Garden. As well the plants, they have an excellent cake and coffee shop open every day except Wednesday. Whole cakes to take away can be ordered in advance.

Last but not least, there is a Tesco in Aviemore, open every day.
