If you are looking for a wonderful holiday experience in the Highlands, we can highly recommend the Muckrach Country House Hotel. My wife and I spent three nights here Oct 13-15. We had never visited Scotland before but was looking for a location in the Highlands. Grantown-on-Spey and the surrounding countryside is absolutely beautiful. And the Muckrach Country House Hotel was a perfect selection. The Manor House is equal parts luxury and down home hospitality. We used its central location to do side trips during the day and then enjoyed the luxury and relaxation provided by exceptional hotel staff for the evening and night. The rooms are very comfortable and the bathrooms are well appointed. But we enjoyed relaxing in the Library and Bar for wine in the evening before having dinner each night there at the hotel. Mark Huntley, the General Manager, was an exceptional host as was the rest of the Manor House staff. We were extremely pleased with our stay and look forward to returning for a longer vsit.

We had previously had dinner here last year and it was very good.
This time it was a bit disappointing with my venison steak that was meant to be rare was well done and my wife’s sirloin steak was just warm. Apple crumble was also cold. Staff were nice but seemed a bit under staffed. A real shame because it is a lovely setting.

We recently traveled to Scotland for a much needed vacation. During our stay we booked with Muckrach Country Hotel. We were originally going to spend three nights and then find accommodations daily as we explored the country. We fell in love with Muckrach as we drove in the first afternoon. Muckrach's setting is idyllic, nestled on a hilltop surrounded by even higher pastured hills. The trees were golden and just starting to lose their leaves. As we entered Muckrach we passed down a hall that led us past the library to the check in desk which faces a sitting room. Our host, Mark, gave us our keys and showed us to our room on second floor. The rooms are beautifully decorated with en suite bathrooms and plenty of space to unpack to help you feel at home. Later we met an acquaintance downstairs in front of an evening fire in the drawing room. We shared drinks from the bar before sharing a delicious dinner in the atrium. We were there on Sunday night so had the Sunday roast which was excellent! Our first few days flew by and we decided we needed to extend our stay for the full length of our vacation. The staff is wonderful! Their attention to detail and service can't be beat. Although we were in the country, we were within a short drive to the sites we had come to see-Balmoral Castle, Culloden Battlefield, distillery tours, Loch Ness, Inverness, etc. We loved the tranquil setting, the service and food, but best of all were the friends we made there. We are planning a return trip and taking our brother and his wife next summer. I am sure they will love Muckrach as well!

Stayed in the Dulnain self-catering unit at Muckrach. Could not fault any aspect of our stay. The accommodation was clean, warm and well decorated. The food in the main hotel was delicious. Would highly recommend.

We stopped by on the way to Speyside for coffee and realised that wherever we were going to be staying would never be as nice as here, so we spoke with Lucy the front of house manager and she offered us 2 rooms at a great rate for our last night.

We came back 2 days later and our rooms were ready, they were beautifully prepared, clean, modern and spotless. And to make it even better they have a hotel puppy dog to take and walk, Harry the 6 month old lab. He really puts smiles on people faces.

We booked dinner for our last night and that was just fabulous, all the food was perfect. We wanted a Malbec wine, but they had sold out so Mark the manager, came with 2 glasses of alternates for us to taste and choose. Now thats personal service and great customer service.

Breakfast was absolutely first class. We had the kippers, wow are they really that big? They were beautifully prepared, so fresh too.

Have to say, we travel all over the world and this is one of the nicest, personal, boutique hotels we have ever stayed at. We want to return, it is so nice, friendly, clean and wonderful.

Pictures of Harry the hotel puppy dog we took for a walk.

Highly recommend, would suggest you call direct for best prices as direct is cheaper than comparison web sites!!
