The McInnes opened under new management last year and it's been a welcome addition to the village. Dependable pub grub, a carvery on a Sunday (go earlier rather than later) and a good place for a wee drink at the bar.

Local trails take you up Creag Bheag just behind the house. It's well worth the effort as the views up and down the valley are really very lovely. FYI the record for the hill run is around 30mins ;-)
