We recently stayed for 5 nights at The Old School and loved every minute of it. Kate was very welcoming, helped us out with suggestions for local places to visit, delicious scones and even coal for the BBQ! The rooms are restored to a top standard with large comfy beds, lovely bathrooms and a really cozy feel - perfect after... More

I recently stayed at Kate's beautiful accommodation for a long weekend. It's situated in perfect distance to Carrbridge and I couldn't have asked for more!! The grounds were amazing (they went on for miles). There really isn't anything like waking up to the sprawling hills with the occasional glimpse of a deer. End of day soak in the hot tube?... More

Another fabulous stay at The Old School, Kate treated us like VIP's for the whole week!! Spotlessly clean accommodation as always, loads of space to relax, chocolate brownie, eggs and a warm welcome waiting for us! The hot-tub was very inviting after a day in the hills, and we loved George, the new 'gardener', greeting him with a cheery hello... More

Just returned from our first stay and absolutely loved it. We stayed in the staff room with our 2 year old twins and cannot fault the stay. The boys loved (perhaps too much!) the dogs and goats and there is loads to see and do right on the doorstep. The grounds were great and we even enjoyed al fresco dining... More

Great location and clean modern accommodation. The welcome was great with homemade cake and fresh eggs. The rooms were of high standard as was the whole building and grounds. Kate was helpful suggesting points of interest and asking how we were enjoying ourselves. The hot tub and sauna was also a bonus however slightly concerning that there was a camera... More

I am glad you enjoyed your stay her at The Old School. We try very hard to maintain our high standard of accommodation and yes we are very proud of our achievements. The good housekeeping deposit is fairly standard in most self catering properties now, but thankfully it is mostly unnecessary. The camera at the hot tub is not yet... More

We had a brilliant holiday at the Old School. The house, garden and location were all perfect. We were made to feel very welcome by Kate and really appreciated the fresh eggs and home baking when we arrived. When I read reviews prior to booking my holiday I was a bit concerned that some mentioned dogs as our nine year... More

We had a wonderful time in Scotland, made even better with our stay at the Old School. We were very close to excellent hiking trails and other places of interest, including Inverness and Loch Ness. The Old School was equipped with everything we needed and more, like the sauna! Close to Aviemore and shops too. A perfect week. We highly... More

Even before arriving at The Old School, I felt warmly welcomed by Kate's very kind emails and quick replies to my numerous questions. She suggested how to get to Carrbridge from Edinburgh (by train or even better by rental car), told me exactly how long it would take, and I found Duthil despite the lack of Satnav or map with...

The perfect place to come (home) to after a long journey up from London. On arrival we were welcomed by Kate and her amazing three dogs. We were very impressed by how crisp and clean everything was. We had everything we needed - a fully equipped kitchen, two bathrooms, free access to the WIFI, great beds and a very spacious... More
