Food & Drink

spectacular views

Boasting one of the most spectacular views in the Scottish Highlands, we use where possible, the best locally sourced ingredients to produce creative menus with home-style cooked food.

Complimented by a wide selection of drinks and local hand-crafted beer and spirits, makes the Boathouse Restaurant & Bar a must go-to destination for any visitors to the area.

Our doors are open from breakfast to lunch every day and serving evening meals until 7pm.

We welcome all ages of guests and size of party. Afternoons at Loch Insh are made for sitting with friends, watching the breath-taking views while relaxing with a coffee and a slice of our fabulous range of cakes, including our famous carrot cake made to the same recipe for 40 years!
