The Golf View Hotel & Spa provides a scenic panorama out to the Moray Firth and Black Isle; guests seated in the hotel’s brasserie and bar can take advantage of the views, perhaps catching a glimpse of the inquisitive dolphins and other creatures local to the waters.

Dining :

Welcome to the award-winning kitchens of Nairn.

Choose fine dining in the award-winning Fairways Restaurant, a meal in the contemporary Links Brasserie with panoramic views out over the Moray Firth or afternoon tea in the comfort of the lounge.

  • Two dining options
  • Award winning food & service
  • Moray Firth & Black Isleviews from Links Brasserie
  • Bar and lounge areas

The restaurant comprises full windows, almost from ceiling to floor along one wall, and the heavy velvet curtains and rich décor give Fairways a more formal setting to sit down to dinner than the brasserie. A certain ambience is created with the combination of dim lighting and our attention to quality and detail.

Dress code is casual, so feel free to dress up or down as you like.

Sample a taste from award-winning kitchens with our six course taster option. The menu changes daily and is passionately prepared to complement the seasons. The à la carte dinner menu, from which our tasters are based, has been created by our celebrated Head Chef Saurav and brings together classic Scottish and traditional dishes with a creative twist.

Being right on the north coast of Scotland, seafood features largely our menus, with the mouillabaisse of monkfish and Arbroath pollock being counted amongst the favourites.

Steaks are also a bit of speciality here with beef from our very own chief exec’s Crerar Home Farm Lammermuir Luing herd sometimes being featured on the menu. To top of these pedigree, top cuts, all steaks are cooked on our Josper grill and through the elegant combination of the grill and oven technique, benefit from a unique charcoaled flavour.

The Golf View offers a Young Diner’s menu which is exclusively for those under the age of 15 – regardless of how much the older diners may want to try it.

We have always felt that younger diners should have a choice without compromise when it comes to their dining selection. So we offer the choice of anything from our “adult” menus, though we have also created a different menu aimed at the discerning younger diner who may be looking for something different.

We have described the dishes simply but we can explain them more in person and of course we can add or take anything off as you wish. If you fancy something different, that’s fine just tell us and if we have the ingredients we will be delighted to make exactly what you like.

Breakfast, also served in Fairways Restaurant, consists of a light breakfast of hot drinks, fruits and cereals, buffet style. Following your Nutella on toast, mini croissants or homemade porridge – from regular World Porridge Making Championship entrants! – we invite you to order from our hot breakfast selection which includes your choice from eggs Florentine to cinnamon French toast with maple syrup and bacon, to a brace of boiled eggs with soldiers if that’s how you like it.

Breakfast in bed is also an option, simply let us know by the night before and we will be happy to arrange at a supplement.

We believe greatly in locally sourced ingredients, high quality and seasonal produce for our menus, which means occasionally dishes from our advertised menus may be unavailable.

Bar :

The bar is stocked with our hand-picked selection of wines, whiskies from around the country and a cocktail list combining the classics, some of our own and all of our love.

Decide to sit with a drink at the bar, or by our open fire in the lounge. Ask our whisky ambassador for his recommendations, or try a local ale…

  • Lounge
  • Bar
  • Over 40 malt whiskies
  • Extensive wine list
  • Cocktail list
  • Beer, ale & lager

Golf :

Golf View Hotels & Spa works with you to create your perfect Scottish golf experience, whether it be a one off event, short golf break or bespoke luxury golf vacation.

Few places could offer more stunning settings for classic links golf than the Highlands of Scotland. From Nairn to Dornoch, this part of Scotland is blessed with many excellent golf courses, all offering a challenge to golfers of all levels as well as superb surroundings. While the Nairn Championship Course and Royal Dornoch are probably the best known golf courses in the area, there are enough courses to fill a full golf itinerary to keep any golfer satisfied.

Try Nairn Dunbar or Tain which are both relatively flat links, or the inland Boat of Garten, often described as one of the most picturesque courses in Scotland. With so many fantastic Scottish golf courses, Scotland is more than the Home of Golf; it is the home of links golf, the original form of the game that had its beginnings in Scotland over 600 years ago. Scotland’s golf courses have forged a reputation as the finest and the most famous links golf courses in the world.

At Golf View Hotel & Spa, our aim is to create an unforgettable golf vacation for you, taking in the best of golf in Nairn and the surrounding area. We can plan everything for you, leaving you to enjoy your golfing vacation in the knowledge that you will be experiencing the finest standards of golf and the warmest Scottish hospitality. We understand the importance of high quality, personal service both before, and during, your golf tour.

Few towns the size of Nairn feature two championship golf courses in such close vicinity. Within just over one mile of each other lie the excellent facilities of Nairn Golf Club and Nairn Dunbar Golf Club. Nearby there are two more golfing gems – the Royal Dornoch and Castle Stuart championship links courses. Together they provide a challenging and enjoyable test for all standards of players – from novices to the world’s top amateurs and professionals.
