We booked this hotel at fairly short notice as we were meeting others in the area for a field trip. What a good decision it was to stay here! Carrbridge is a delightful village within a few miles of Aviemore and highly recommended as an excellent base to explore the surrounding countryside or the nearby Cairngorms. It has the charm...

We stayed one night en route from Edinburgh to the Highlands. The owner and his wife were most attentive. We had a beautiful room overlooking substantial well looked after private grounds, and the river. Public rooms were luxurious but in a comfortable way. The food was good, in particular excellent locally sourced ingredients. Wines well chosen and fairly priced. Not...

Many thanks for posting a review from your stay last August. We are very glad you enjoyed the Hunting Lodge atmosphere so much that you stayed an extra night.

Had a great, relaxing weekend away in Dalrachney Lodge. Old fashioned in style in the main rooms of the hotel with a bit of class. Bedroom was excellent with good quality shower room en suite. Location and setting is great...woke up to a couple of inches of snow which really set things up.

Our second visit to this country house hotel, though our first under its current ownership - we were pleased to see that key amenities have experienced some quality modernisation, but without detracting from the traditional grandeur and charm of the impressive building. My wife and I were made to feel welcome, with attentive but unobtrusive service. At the end of...

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
