The Cairnbaan Hotel is an extremely well run business that has been run by the current proprietors for 16 years.

The business trades throughout the year and its quality is reflected in the number of awards it currently holds such as achieving 4.5 out of 5 on Trip Advisor and being ranked number 1 hotel in the area. Additional marketing is carried out through its own informative website www.cairnbaan.com. The hotel trades throughout the year from a good mix of tourists and local customers.
