Absolutely jammed - one hour wait for the restaurant but food served in the bar was fine. Good atmosphere.
An Teallach - Crofters Pale Ale4.20AcceptableAn undistinguished, easy drinking mid-brown ale. Brewed with lager malts apparently.

Busy alehouse with hand pumps working furiously. Restaurant very busy - excellent burritos and enchilladas.
Cairngorm - Highland IPA5.00GoodSeasonal ale brewed to 5.0% ABV. Light bodied and amber with lasting tight white head. Enjoyable with dry finish but could have done with bolder hopping. Didn't drink it's strength.
