Coming up from Edinburgh we were delayed I emailed to say we were running late but would check in by 8PM. We received an email back saying check-in is 4-6PM. However the website says to call or email if you would prefer an earlier or later check in...We called after the initial email and was told that check is 4-6PM...

Very centrally located that makes this guest house very convenient. It's only a 10 minute walk into the main street filled with shops, cafes, outdoor clothing shops, hiking stores etc. The owner greets you upon arrival and shows you to your room after taking the time to guide you about the area. You may choose the time you would like...

Check in is between 4 and 6, no exceptions! We were delayed with business in England and got stuck in traffic due to an accident, followed by a lot of construction. Got a rather curt phone call at 6:15 asking why we were late, and if we were coming. Confused, I told her we were on her way. She then...

This place is just the best. We have stayed before and we were again not disappointed. The attention to detail and the breakfasts are of such a high standard. The rooms are fantastic and the guest sitting room with the honesty bar is very comfortable and relaxing. Thank you Sheila and we will see you again in the autumn.

My wife and I visit the Aviemore area every month for a weekend stay or longer, however this was our first (but not last) visit to The Old Minister's House.
