4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Spent just one night while travelling the Highlands. Very comfortable accommodations and a good breakfast. Highly recommend the side trip over to Loch Muick for a quick hike after breakfast. The sitting parlor was very welcoming as we enjoyed some of Alison's stories of local history. A quick stop at the town bakery and we were on our way.

My wife, daughter and I stayed at Creag Meggan for 4 nights early in September. We couldn't have been happier with our stay. Great location in quiet area on the edge of town. Allison and Rob were great hosts. Set right in the Cairngorms National Park, it's a perfect staging area for hiking, discovering the park and local castles like... More

I stayed here with my wife and baby daughter around June 2010 (very late review!) The host was absolutely lovely and made us feel at home. The full english breakfast is something my wife and I still mention from time I time and has since been our standard for a full English. Arrangements were made for our baby and parking... More

This was quite good for a one night stay. The room was small but had ensuite, the bed was very comfy and we has a good view of the rabbits roaming the paddocks. The service was ok and we had a good breakfast. Only paid 60 pounds which was good. This is excellent when visiting Balmoral Castle as only 10... More
