The Caberfeidh

The Caberfeidh serves both large and small plates in an atmospheric wood and stone-clad room, with wonderful views overlooking the river mouth and sea loch. The emphasis is on local, seasonal, free range and wild produce, including locally caught fish and shellfish, as well as wild game, free range beef and lamb and they do a mean sticky toffee pudding! There is also a bar serving real ales – perfect for a quick sundowner after a long day in the hills! Tel: 01571 844321
