A little GEM of an ex Hunting Lodge. Gordon & Trixie were the perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble. The atmosphere of the lodge and its grounds was stunning - a real Scottish experience! The food was excellent. The room was excellent.

We arrived at this beautiful lodge mid-afternoon and was greeted by Dennis, one of the principle owners. Our room was a nice suite with everything fresh and clean overlooking the gardens. We stayed in for dinner which was well prepared and very enjoyable. I would recommend this lodge for anyone who wishes to stay in the area.

We stayed at Dalrachney as we were attending a family function close by. The building is truly stunning and this old hunting lodge does not fail to impress. The owners are very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was superb. A delicious cup of peppermint tea served in lovely china really set me up for the day. We didn't dine...

Nestled in a quiet spot you find this little jewel of a hotel. As you drive up the gravel driveway the grand stonebuilt manor house appears in full view. If you can imagine the historical past of this place as you step foot inside it comes alive when you observe the portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the...

Dalrachney Lodge was a beautiful 2 night retreat to commence our Scottish road trip. The perfect base for exploring the Cairngorms and Balmoral area. Gordon and Trixie were absolute delights and could not do enough to make our stay very pleasant. We ate in the restaurant on both evenings and thoroughly enjoyed dinner, starting with drinks in the sitting room....

Lovely old shooting lodge, with wonderful hosts, the title says it all, nothing was too much trouble. I arrived with elderly parents and they went out of their way to accommodate them in a room on the ground floor, normally used as a self catering annex. The food was delicious and served quickly, the public rooms were well done with...

Gordon and Trixie, the owners were both very nice and couldn't be more helpful. The king bedroom was very comfortable; we were based in a sunny room on the 3rd floor in the eaves.

We are glad you had a comfortable stay with us and liked your room. Also great to hear that you enjoyed your meal in our Bistro. Good to know that you would stay again and do give us a call first to get the best rates rather than booking online! Many thanks for your review.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dalrachney Lodge is an independent family run Country House Hotel in Carrbridge in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. We recognise how precious your relaxation and holiday time is away from home and we aim to provide a tranquil environment in which to enjoy our wonderful surroundings. Dalrachney Lodge a former Edwardian Hunting Lodge, is set in 3 acre grounds within the Cairngorms National Park and rests directly beside our own 1 km stretch of the Dulnain River. Our Bistro menu features locally sourced food and a good selection of whiskies. We have Egyptian cotton bed linen, Heirlooms towels and Floris toiletries in all rooms. Our Superior rooms have handmade Savoir Super King size beds. Having taken over just two years ago, a substantial renovation project is ongoing which has seen our Drawing Room and Bar/Bistro refurbished and completion of two new bedrooms with new en-suite bathrooms. In March 2015 a biomass boiler system was installed and another two new bathrooms have been completed. Investment in the Hotel is continuing with work starting on updating more bathrooms later in the year and a self-catering cottage will be available for rental in the Summer. We hope you will come and enjoy our Scottish hospitality and all the Cairngorms has to offer. ... more   less
