Newly opened in 2016 we serve delicious local cuisine in the Terrace, indoor and out. Come and sample some excellent food matched with a extensive selection of wine. There is a choice of almost 300 malt whiskeys and 20 gins, you can enjoy in front of the cozy stove watching one of the best views Scotland has to offer.
