Owner was very nice and the bar staff nice too. We were staying in one of the houses adjacent to the main hotel and we could park right outside the door. The curry was one of the best I have had and would recommend that. Brekky wasn't bad but not the best. One night our heating was not working and... More

We, four friends, stayed at the highlander inn for 3 night to visit the speyside area to take some walks in this beautifull region, but most important to see some distilleries and taste some lovely whiskies. The owner, Tatsuya and his staff are very friendly and always ready to help you. The food is really very good and the room... More

Ask if Tatsui is in the house. You will not find anyone more knowledgeable about whisky in these parts. And he's balanced about it too - he loves and offers a large selection of the Japanese ones but his collection of the Scottish - pretty much any area of the world, is to die for. We were given this place... More

My wife and I stayed at the Highlander Inn for 2 nights and it was just about everything we could have hoped for! The bar is truly the highlight -- not as flashy or grand as the Quaich down the street, but more intimate and cozy, warmer, and with a whisky collection that seems to carry a history of its... More

We went there for a business dinner. The pub food was good and the stuff fine. There is a chance to enjoy British pub games. The whisky choice is probably the most comprehensive I have ever seen. I just watched this time.

This is a lovely traditional pub close to the banks of the Spey, serving excellent food and with a great selection of whiskies. Very friendly, welcoming staff. Rooms were clean and comfortable though perhaps a little pricey for the standard.

Lovely place - staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful - food was excellent especially if you wanted food with a Scottish twist or flavour. The location on the banks of the Spey are more than impressive and it's a fantastic base for walking in all directions - will definitely visit again

We were not in the main hotel, so your experience might differ. However, we stayed in the rooms located across the street. They are very tired in appearance, and there is a strong musty smell. You share a toilet and a bathroom with the other lodgers. The location is great if you wish to stay in Craigellachie. And you are... More

My wife & I stayed here for just one night on a motorcycle tour of Scotland specifically to experience the local whisky culture. We were definitely not disappointed.

This is only a review on the food as we didn't make use of their Inn. So, we stumbled upon this place towards the end of our stay in Scotland. We enjoyed it so much we ate here again on the last night of our stay. The place can get very busy, so it might be worth reserving a table.... More
