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...

Such a great place to stay. Both Catriona and Neil are amazing hosts! The breakfast was definitely something to write home about too! The room was super comfy and the view from Room 1 was a treat. Great location. Highly recommended.

Stayed for 3 nights? This lodge is just exceptional, way beyond what we were expecting. Wonderful views, amazing attention to detail. Breakfast was more than we were able to eat.

Stayed 2 nights in luxury. Nothing was too much trouble, we came back from golf soaked the first night, Neil had all our golfing gear dried by the morning. The bed was really comfortable. Breakfast superb. Thanks again Neil and Catriona for making our stay so comfortable.
