Where the bar is open, and the fire is on.

Join us and get cosy inside during the colder months, or bathe in the Scottish sunshine and enjoy drinks and al fresco dining during summer, in our beer garden. The Boat Country Inn offers a perfect place all year round to stop for refreshments along the Speyside Way by the Strathyspey Steam Railway. Our bar is always open and our team are ready to welcome and serve you during your stay, visit, or quick stop, before continuing on your journey.

The lounge is a cosy corner to share a drink and recount stories of the day. Browse the cocktail menu or order a flight of whisky together. Our Whisky selection has something for all palates, Speyside, Lowland, Island, just ask the team for what’s on the shelf.

Beer, lager and wine are plentiful with craft beer, red, white and rose wine hand selected by our manager on the menu.

We are also delighted to present Uile-bheist Distillery and Brewery and have a full range from this low carbon craft brewery, distillery and visitor experience in Inverness.

“Made with 100% locally grown and malted barley, Scottish oats and the purest water from the River Ness, Uile-bheist is a local brew, through and through.”

Whisky Tasting

The Boat isn’t just a country inn, hotel, bar and restaurant. We offer experiences to make your stay even more enjoyable. Book our whisky and chocolate tasting, where you will be guided through four different expressions of whisky. At the end of the tasting, you’ll know which expressions you enjoy and be able to choose from hundreds of whiskies available behind our well-stocked bar.

You’ll experience a pre-selected flight of malt whisky and Scottish handmade chocolate that complement each other perfectly. All for £70 for two people.
