We stayed at The Old School last week on our second visit to Carrbridge. We chose this accommodation as we wanted a quite location just out of the village. The accommodation is immaculate, yet very comfy and cosy, The hot tub and sauna are a fantastic added extra, set in the garden overlooking the mountains. Kate and David were welcoming... More

I stayed for 3 nights in January as part of a large group celebrating a 30th birthday. We hired all three apartments out resulting in exclusive use of the facilities. I would like to start by saying the facilities are absolutely beautiful, the apparent I stayed in was lovely, the bed was very comfortable and the heated floor in the... More

It is with no surprise that I read your review, although I do note your wonderful photos on Facebook advising of the wonderful time you all had. I l'd like you to know how difficult your party made my weekend and to point out your misuse of the facilities. I provide self catering accommodation NOT serviced accommodation Extra guests visiting... More

We stayed here for four nights in January and couldn't fault the place. Stunning scenery, hot tub and sauna in peaceful surroundings, comfortable beds and well equipped kitchen. Kate and David were very welcoming and helpful. Loved the area and will definitely be back!

We had a whole week in the Staffroom at this peaceful location. We had great expectations as we had chosen very carefully for this special trip to Scotland - we were not disappointed! This apartment/cottage is so beautifully designed & renovated that nothing has been omitted. We slept well in the huge bed & snuggled in to watch TV on... More

Stunning design, stunning location, just stunning. Tastefully converted and contemporary designed former schools house. Perfect for touring highlands, half hour away from everything you need in inverness. Close enough to aviemore for activities but far enough away that it is a backwater- I find aviemore high street like the Blackpool of the north and ok in small doses! The woods... More

Off season, late booking, but do not regret it a moment. We were looking for something special in the north Cairngorms area and found it. We stayed in the Staffroom and had a great stay. We arrived late, not a problem, door open, nice scones awaiting for a late night snack, that is service. Livingroom/kitchen is adequate with a sofa... More

Absolutely beautiful place, Kate was very welcoming & made us home made brownies...my favourite! Think she must have physic powers! We only stayed one night which was a shame would loved to have stayed longer. Everything in this self catering accommodation is high end, comfy beds & plenty of hot water. Will definitely return!

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
