Named after the burn flowing past nearby and set within the same building as the Rothiemurchus Estate's excellent farm shop and deli, it's all too easy to be lured into this cosy café and restaurant after being tempted by the delights in the shop. Rothiemurchus's strong commitment to using its own top-quality produce as well as other local ingredients means the menu, whether breakfast or lunch, offers a guaranteed taste of the Cairngorms. From the estate there is highland beef in the burger or roast beef and mustard sandwich, smoked trout in pâté served with homemade soda bread, and forest venison in sausages with chive mash or inside a wrap with redcurrant jelly. Home-baking fills the counter with scones, cakes and traybakes, while changing art exhibitions adorn the walls.
