“Best pub in Aviemore, with variety of beer, gin and whisky what’s not to love. In winter the fire will be on for you to warm up by, try and find the pack of cards hidden in the books for a wee game of cards. They also have live music and party nights through out the year. So check them out to see who playing soon. ”

“The "Cairn" is a family favourite with us, no nonsense pub food and is always busy, don't worry if it looks too packed though, go to reception and they will give you a buzzer so you can go get a drink in the bar while you wait for your table. Friendly staff and great atmosphere, there is often live music, look for the board in the bar and it will tell you whats on each night. Also through the summer months in the evening, Spud the piper plays outside for a while.”

“Cairngorm Brewery Company is a craft brewery established in 2001, situated in the village of Aviemore within the Cairngorms National Park in the Highlands of Scotland. They currently have a 20 barrel Brewhouse, capable of producing 6500 litres of the finest ale each day. With a full range of permanent and seasonal cask beers to suit all tastes, many of them available throughout the year in 500ml and 330ml bottles. You can go just to buy the beers, but we definitely recommend booking onto the tour, fascinating and very generous sampling hic!”
