Our cottage had a swimming and golf pass for Spey Valley so we stopped by to take advantage. To be honest, it’s a bit dated in places (very 80’s) but, to be fair, they’re obviously aware of this as its clear that money has been spent as both the swimming facilities and reception area were very nice. Overall it had...

We called in here as the board outside the hotel said 'non residents welcome.' We were delighted with the meal we had and with the ambience of the dining room. Everything was excellent and freshly prepared. Best fish and chips EVER. Highly recommended.
