Perched on top of a hill and with panoramic views of the Cairngorm mountain range, our restaurant offers a menu packed with delicious seasonal Scottish food. We use the best locally sourced ingredients, from the tender beef and lamb grazed on the pastures of Strathspey and North Scotland, to the wild mushrooms handpicked in local woodlands and fresh salads and herbs and vegetables from our own kitchen garden. With ingredients this good we make sure our food is cooked to perfection.
Our talented Chef heads an enthusiastic team, ensuring that dining at Mountview is an opportunity to enjoy the wonderful, fresh, local ingredients for which this area is so well known.
