We stayed here for four nights in January and couldn't fault the place. Stunning scenery, hot tub and sauna in peaceful surroundings, comfortable beds and well equipped kitchen. Kate and David were very welcoming and helpful. Loved the area and will definitely be back!

We had a whole week in the Staffroom at this peaceful location. We had great expectations as we had chosen very carefully for this special trip to Scotland - we were not disappointed! This apartment/cottage is so beautifully designed & renovated that nothing has been omitted. We slept well in the huge bed & snuggled in to watch TV on...

Stunning design, stunning location, just stunning. Tastefully converted and contemporary designed former schools house. Perfect for touring highlands, half hour away from everything you need in inverness. Close enough to aviemore for activities but far enough away that it is a backwater- I find aviemore high street like the Blackpool of the north and ok in small doses! The woods...

Off season, late booking, but do not regret it a moment. We were looking for something special in the north Cairngorms area and found it. We stayed in the Staffroom and had a great stay. We arrived late, not a problem, door open, nice scones awaiting for a late night snack, that is service. Livingroom/kitchen is adequate with a sofa...

Absolutely beautiful place, Kate was very welcoming & made us home made brownies...my favourite! Think she must have physic powers! We only stayed one night which was a shame would loved to have stayed longer. Everything in this self catering accommodation is high end, comfy beds & plenty of hot water. Will definitely return!

We recently stayed for 5 nights at The Old School and loved every minute of it. Kate was very welcoming, helped us out with suggestions for local places to visit, delicious scones and even coal for the BBQ! The rooms are restored to a top standard with large comfy beds, lovely bathrooms and a really cozy feel - perfect after...

I recently stayed at Kate's beautiful accommodation for a long weekend. It's situated in perfect distance to Carrbridge and I couldn't have asked for more!! The grounds were amazing (they went on for miles). There really isn't anything like waking up to the sprawling hills with the occasional glimpse of a deer. End of day soak in the hot tube?...

Kate was able to fit us in and I cannot stress enough how luxurious Mrs Clarks Classroom was. we were blown away. my 5yr old is scared of dogs and Kate's lovely dog helped her overcome this...

Another fabulous stay at The Old School, Kate treated us like VIP's for the whole week!! Spotlessly clean accommodation as always, loads of space to relax, chocolate brownie, eggs and a warm welcome waiting for us! The hot-tub was very inviting after a day in the hills, and we loved George, the new 'gardener', greeting him with a cheery hello...

Just returned from our first stay and absolutely loved it. We stayed in the staff room with our 2 year old twins and cannot fault the stay. The boys loved (perhaps too much!) the dogs and goats and there is loads to see and do right on the doorstep. The grounds were great and we even enjoyed al fresco dining...
