The Old Bridge Inn in Aviemore is a wonderful stop for lunch, dinner or just to enjoy a relaxing drink. Right on the River Spey there is a large outdoor seating area, and some oven under cover.
Balavoulin in the center of Aviemore serves lunch, dinner and pretty fabulous cocktails. There are designated areas in the bar for your pooch.
