About the Pub

The Cairn Hotel is a traditional Highland inn with seven guest rooms and is popular with both locals and visitors.

The three handpumps normally offer a beer from the local Cairngorm brewery with the second from Orkney or Cromarty and the third pump features a different Scottish guest ale with every cask.

Freshly cooked, seasonal bar meals are available every day in the busy pub.

Carrbridge lies towards the Northern end of the Cairngorm National Park with all of its attractions. Locally, there is the 1717 packhorse bridge (which is still standing, but off limits - just in case) over the River Dulnain and the Landmark Adventure Park just down the road which is very popular with families.
