We decided to visit Aviemore as my hubby was working in Aberdeen and we’ve always wanted to visit. On arrival, we were advised that our allocated booking of the Morlich hotel had been changed to the Highland Hotel as they had decided to close the Morlich which was disappointing.

The hotel is situated in a campus like setting with 5 other hotels/buildings. Our room was clean with tasteful decor but TINY. I had to move everything in order to make space for my luggage on the floor.
