I have stayed at Pine Bank on a number of occasions and quite honestly say the quality of the accommodation and service can't be matched. Easy to find, next door to an excellent pub and fantastic facilities and car parking. The chalets are of a very high standard, extremely clean, warm and full of character. Will definitely return and can... More

Second time at Pinebank, this time stayed in the Fintry, really nice, although when we arrived it was freezing, I went to reception next morning to let them know and was given a bag of logs for the wood burner, also that night the owner Simon popped in to ask if we were ok and dropped off another bag of...

Really pleased with the standard of our cabin. Usually when you ask for dog friendly you get the tired old place that no one else wants to stop in. Well not here, it was spotlessly clean and modern. We will definitely be back.

As doggy people ourselves we are very pleased to offer a wide range of accommodation both from our premium and classic range for people and their four legged friends! We are glad you liked the chalet and hope you enjoyed some of the fantastic walks we have around here. The Old Bridge Inn pub next-door is dog friendly too! More

I booked this short break as a very special birthday present for my partner from the 8th March 2015 for 3 nights. We stayed in Nethy and it was spotless with everything that you needed, the location was very quite within a 10 or 15 minute walk to Aviemore and you also have the Old Bridge Inn within a 5... More

We stayed in the Sheilling which is a self contained flat located in the main house. Comfortable overall and the log burner is a nice homely touch. We did find the kitchen difficult due to our height and the slanted eaves but it added to the character. The only issue to mention would be the sofa - it was badly... More

Many thanks for your review. The sofa in Sheiling is not old but unfortunately has succumbed to a few marks recently and is on the list to be replaced within the next couple of months. We do sincerely apologise for this. I would like to reassure you however that it is clean, just has the odd stain unfortunatly. We were... More

my beloved and I returned for what must be our 4th or 5th time at pine bank. We stayed in Bynack this time and were instantly bowled over by the quality of the refurbishment. The log burner is a great addition together with the uber clean kitchen and bathroom, so even when we were stormed off the mountain, a very... More

Hubby and I returned to the Braeriach cabin after visiting last year, and once again thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We ended up arriving slightly later than planned - but no problem, after a quick call ahead - the key was waiting for us on arrival, allowing us to head to the cabin straight away. We were delighted to see the... More

Beautiful chalets in the perfect location for Aviemore, Glenmore, Rothiemurchus, Cairngorm and the surrounding area. Great for couples, families, friends, dog owners or groups. We'll be coming back to Pine Bank for many years to come.

We were up ski-ing for a long weekend in February 2015. The lodge we had was very basic & quite small but it serves it's purpose very well as we were out most of the day & ate out at night. The location can not be beaten & as you're on the road to the Cairngorms & within walking distance... More

Many thanks for your review and we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay, our deluxe accommodation offers some more luxuries then our classic accommodation, but as you said if you are intending to head out and about day and night this is not always required. We do hope to see you again soon! More
