My 8 year old grandson, myself and the dog stayed at Lochanhully for a half-term break. It was fabulous. The staff were helpful, the lodge was lovely, and the pool just right. Aviemore is only a short drive away and Carrbridge has all the essentials (food, fuel, and a nice cafe) Would definitely recommend.

What a brilliant little woodland getaway. The lodges, although basic, have everything you really need. Clearly decorated recently too. Staying here is like a home away from home. Great views looking out into nature, and a nice lake with hungry ducks! The staff here were really helpful (Personal thanks to the reception, pool and the maintenance staff, who couldn't have...

The plusses of Lochanhully are firstly the staff under Ruth the manager, the location just outside Carrbridge, the compact but easy to heat chalets and the nice wee swimming pool. However, having been there twice before we feel that it is suffering under the dead hand of Macdonalds who don't seem to be looking after it as well as it...

Words cannot describe how amazing this place is. Not just where you stay but also the surrounding area. Our lodge was clean and comfortable and had all the amenities you would need. We dined at Jakes Bar one night and the food was great. Faultless and good sized portions rivalling what you'd get at a good country pub. Highly recommended!

A firm favourite for over 13 years, the well kept grounds ( and resident ducks ) swing parks and scenery never disappoint, with the addition of Jakes bar , there really is no need to go anywhere else.

First off, I have been coming here several times a year, for the past 20 years, my husband for the past 30. The lodges are nice but very basic. There is a double bedroom and a twin bedroom with a single bed with a pull out bed underneath. This is a nightmare to set up and none of my kids...

Our family of five with children aged 17, 14 & 9 went here several times whilst we were in Prague. We visited in December so it was quite cold, as a result we did not use the dining area as that area was freezing. You need to pay for the usage of electricity so it can get costly to heat....

Stayed for 3 nights but wished we could have stayed for longer. Spacious,clean and well laid out and equipped lodge. Peaceful and relaxing setting. Dog friendly and nice walks through the grounds. It was actually nice not to have wi-fi in the lodge just to get away from it. We didn't use the pool (although it looked nice but small)...
