Located in the outskirts of Carrbridge village near Aviemore this resort is the perfect base for exploring both the Cairngorms National Park and Moray Speyside. Located in the village of Carrbridge this is a very peaceful Scottish resort. Traditional woodland cabins located around a small lochan offering guests a secluded escape, perfectly located for exploring the Cairngorms National Park. Lochanhully is also pet-friendly so why not bring your four-legged family and explore the many popular walks nearby? With Aviemore less than 20 minutes away and Inverness just a 35 minute drive there’s a huge selection of activities, shopping and leisure nearby too.

Dear Guests, thank you for your review, I do hope that the price of the electricity has not overshadowed what I wish was a pleasant experience. The charged electricity is the same policy across all Macdonald Resorts. Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback on your stay and I hope to welcome you back the our resort in the future. Kind Regards Ruth

The picture on the website looked ideal. In reality the lodges were a rather rundown and tired. We arrived, I think we were the further lodge away from the reception, up a hill and had to walk a fair bit with the luggage to get from allotted parking space. The lodge was clean,

"Lodges around the Lochan give the best views.Ask for the new remodelled lodges."
"We had chalet 11 overlooking the lake."
"Ask for a cabin close to the hotel main building if you want to be near the facilities."
"Request a lodge overlooking the loch as these looked much lighter than the forest lodges."
"Get one by the loch cabins 8,9,10,11 else you are looking at trees"
