About us

The cosy bar area

The name Caberfeidh (pronounced Caber-fay) is Scottish Gaelic for stag's antlers. Traditionally, the chief of Clan MacKenzie was known as 'Caberfeidh', derived from the old Mackenzie Coat of Arms. This is the name of the family who many years ago set up a shop in the building. It has undergone several changes since then, including a café before becoming a bar, restaurant and now a dining pub.


The Caberfeidh was taken over by Colin Craig and Lesley Crosfield in March 2014, as an addition to their renowned Michelin starred restaurant and boutique hotel The Albannach, also in Lochinver. Self-taught chefs Colin and Lesley met while the latter was running her small hotel and dining pub Altskeith in Kinlochard near Aberfoyle in the Trossachs. They bought the historic old house which became The Albannach in 1990 and have dedicated their lives since to making it what it is now – a stylish boutique hotel and Britain’s most northerly Michelin-starred restaurant.

Located in the heart of the village where the River Inver meets the sea, The Caberfeidh is a harmonious addition, furthering Lochinver’s growing reputation as a culinary destination. Changes this season will focus on the menu and wine list, with more substantive alterations to follow.

A local young chef was recruited to run the kitchen under Colin and Lesley’s direction.  Liam Mcvey trained in professional cookery at Inverness College and has worked in the kitchens of various restaurants in the city. He was delighted at the opportunity of running his own kitchen at such an early stage in his career, as well as to be back among family and friends. 

As at The Albannach, the emphasis is on local, seasonal, free range and wild produce, including locally caught fish and shellfish, as well as wild game, free range beef and lamb.
