Wow! What a wonderful stay. Neil and Catriona have built a beautiful and luxurious guest house and are superb warm hosts. My son (8) and I felt superbly looked after and we are looking forward to returning soon with the rest of the family. Thank you.

Neil and Catriona could not do enough to ensure that our week's stay was so enjoyable in this beautiful part of Scotland. Lovely comfortable room and great choice for breakfast.. Guest house is in an elevated position with super views over the Cairngorms and is very convenient for many of the attractions of the area..

Back to this lovely lodge after a year and this is still the best B&B around this area. The host Catriona and Neil could not have been more helpful, the accommodation is luxurious and the Breakfasts are superb. We will be back again next year as this is just the most relaxing place to be. Close to Aviemore and Carrbridge...
