Hearty fayre for the man about town


Rabbie whiled away many an afternoon when he had finished printing the latest edition of the Scotsman. Lazy afternoons with his cohorts, hearty fayre, strong tea and a beer or two. Quite the life for the man about town…

For the sophisticated man about town the Bothy hosts a Gentleman’s Afternoon Tea for those discerning gents who favour hearty fayre, strong tea, fine beer and good company.

Our chefs have put an altogether masculine slant on the traditional afternoon tea, swapping out the traditional delicate finger food and replacing it with homemade pies, sausage rolls and proper sandwiches. A fine selection of teas served strong and a pint of delicious tank fresh beer round off proceedings, what better to enjoy in the fabulous Bothy bar where the Highlands meet Apres Ski.


Our afternoon teas are offered daily at 12pm, 2pm or 4pm.

Each sitting in 90 minutes. Please let us know if you have any allergies or dietary requirements prior to booking.
