    Ambled into the Garth, after seeking a dinner recommendation from the gal at the info centre in Grantown-On-Spey.  This lovely looking gem is located at one end of the high street, and made me wish I had booked my accommodation here instead of a B&B at the opposite end of town. As I walked in, several gents who were behind me, asked if I was from the AA (I trust they meant Automobile Association and NOT Alcoholics Anonymous!!). I must have had a "no-nonsense" vibe going on .....

    Passed a lovely 1/2 hour in the bar -all by ourselves- with heavenly sunshine streaming in. We "discovered"  Bellhaven's Best to our delight. The time was most pleasant, marred only slightly by the weird radio station playing whiny country & western music in the background.... Not that I was expecting bagpipes, fiddle music, jigs & reels mind you.., its just that I didn't expect to find Elvis, Roy Orbison & Tammy Wynette alive & well in the CairnGorums!

    The dining room decor is very classy & wonderfully appointed: tartan wall paper, stag horn wall sconces, dark wood tables & large comfy chairs, etc. It was obvious that this place was popular with locals as well.

    The meal was very good: piping hot carrot coriander soup, followed by the lamb with chili & mint sauce with mashed potatoes for him & the chicken breast stuffed with haggis on a bed of mashed potatoes for her, accompanied by a large side dish of veggies (boiled potato, cauliflower, green beans & carrots). We decided to follow it with a yummy selection of Scottish cheeses & biscuits (& a handful of rather sad grapes -perhaps a couple of nice crisp apples would have been a better alternative?) All this was washed down with a big red juicy Barolo.

    We strolled back down the high street: warm, full & happy! All in all -a very good experience.:)!
