Steading Bar (Strathdon)
Set in the rolling foothills of the Cairngorm Mountains, the 220 year old Colquhonnie Hotel overlooks the Aberdeenshire Don Valley from a south facing, elevated site. The hotel shares this lovely viewpoint with the Sixteenth century ruins of the unfinished, Colquhonnie Castle and the historic Lonach Hall, home of The Lonach Highlanders. The hotel started life off as a coaching inn serving the route from Deeside over the hills to the valley of the Spey. In those days it took several days to complete the journey by coach. Today you can reach both destinations from the hotel in little over an hour.
Steading Bar recently reopened but has not been visited yet so ale situation is unknown.
