In 1785, the poet Robert Burns wrote of his love of Whisky..

Let other poets raise a fracas 

"Bout vines, an' wines, an' drucken Bacchus, 

An' crabbit names an'stories wrack us, 

An' grate our lug: 

I sing the juice Scotch bear can mak us, 

In glass or jug. 


O thou, my muse! guid auld Scotch drink! 

Whether thro' wimplin worms thou jink, 

Or, richly brown, ream owre the brink, 

In glorious faem, 

Inspire me, till I lisp an' wink, 

To sing thy name! 

We love Scottish Whisky and at Candacraig the guests are able to savour and understand its wonderful complexity from the comfort of their armchair.

Through years of collecting, the Whisky Library is stocked with an extensive selection from Scotland’s finest whisky regions. Expert Whisky tutors are available to host tastings and educate you on the amazing history and flavours of Scots whisky.


The team at Candacraig love Land Rovers but they love the planet more so have decided to build a bike shelter and encourage our guests to explore the majestic Cairngorms National Park by bike.

There are some wonderful tracks and trails near Candacraig. By hiring gravel bikes or e-bikes, guests can travel high and far into the hills of our neighbouring estates, enjoy great open views, and admire wildlife along the way, under the watchful eye of professional guides.

Healthy exercise for the body combined with a light impact on our environment. What's not to love? The only thing that can improve this is one of our chef's glorious picnics, enjoyed at a beauty spot or in one of the lunch huts used by local gamekeepers.
