We all have different taste and likes where eating food is concerned so we will list the places that are most popular with our guests, along with contact details and tips where relevant.
Please remember you are staying in the rural Highlands and many restaurants stop serving food at 9pm except at busy times. However, the Indian and Chinese restaurants usually serve food later.
