With exposed stonework and original beams, the Merlin Restaurant offers an atmospheric setting in the most historic part of the hotel to savour fine food and wine.

Our a la carte menu shows off the finest local produce, lovingly prepared for you by our talented team of chefs, from the likes of Scotch lamb loin on a pillow of mint mash to fillet of Scottish salmon on a bed of garlic and pea puree. Our extensive wine list has the perfect accompaniment, with the finest vintages from around the world including France, Italy, New Zealand and Chile.

We also have a delightful children's menu to tempt the little ones, and breakfast is served in this room every morning.

Unwind with a glass of red or pint of real ale as you tuck into some traditional pub grub in the Ptarmigan Bar.

Famous for homemade steak pies, this cosy lounge bar offers a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy a variety of food and drink. The menu also includes haggis, neeps and tatties, Angus beef burgers and Finnan haddock, plus something for afters.

Whisky connoisseurs will be in their element here as we have around 70 Scotch malts, many of which are rare finds.

Popular with guests and locals alike, the bar is a fantastic place for a catch-up, or you can snuggle up on a comfy leather chair in front of a roaring log fire to plan your next day's activities.
