They commented “After spending many years in hospitality from the family business of The Moorings Hotel in Fort William and building The Classroom in Nairn, Cawdor Tavern has been a very special to run.”

Martin Sutherland, a Licensed Trade & Business Agent with Graham+ Sibbald, commented, “We were delighted to be marketing the Cawdor Tavern. This outstanding business has proven itself to be a key player in Nairnshire attracting large crowds all year round.  It is regarded as one of the most impressive traditional pubs in the area and its reputation is well known.  The seller has decided now is the time to pursue other interest and step away from the trade leaving behind a very well-presented business for the next owner enjoy.”
