Superb Restaurant overlooking Loch Insh and the Cairngorm mountains. The Boathouse, as we are known, is literally that, an old boat shed where the boats live downstairs and you eat upstairs and has been in existence since 1969. Eating upstairs makes you feel that you are literally on the water! Set in 14 acres of woodland in the foothills of the Cairngorms National Park, the site borders the RSPB nature reserve and has a half mile of Beach frontage. Visit Scotland Rated as a 3 star visitor attraction.
Opening hours are from 8.00am for breakfast if you are staying with us, 10am for bar snacks which include Burgers, toasties, panninis, salads and home made scones, soups and sweets. through till 6pm. Then from 6.30 pm enjoy our evening menu, last orders are at 8 pm and we close at 10pm. We have a hotel licence and a public licence to remain open later if you are staying with us (reduced hours in winter)
Our large glass balcony offers probably the best views of the valley on a sunny day ! It means you are sheltered from the wind whilst being able to enjoy all the action on the loch even if you don’t want to get wet !
The quarterdeck bar looks out over the loch and ski slope too so there plenty to keep you entertained.
Other facilities on site include Watersports, Beach volleyball, Football and Basketball areas. We now also have three children’s play areas around the grounds at the beach and an interpretive board walk which leads off site. This takes you to the Insh marshes nature reserve and beyond giving a great insight into the flora and fauna to be found and a brief history of the area. There are endless options for walks and bike routes from 1km upwards. Please ask for advice from our resident instructors on where to go. Remember bikes can be hired on site too.
