Looking for a place to eat on a stop over to the Highlands found this pub just meters from our accommodation. Can recommend the Haggis neeps and tattie. Great portion size, mulled ale was a revelation. The local recommended whiskey Blair Athol well worth trying.

An excellent restaurant for your lunch or dinner. Stopped off during a walk around the village. Really great service and excellent value for money. The main course could have been a bit warmer or served on a warm plate but overall a very good meal.

I don't think it would be, but double check. If not, there is an outdoor seating area if the weathers in your favour!
