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

What a beautiful place this is! We had an amazing time here and the Miss Mackintosh Classroom exceeded all our expectations. It is pure luxury! We loved it all. There's a beautiful kitchen, which has everything you need (do bring your own cooking oil, sugar/salt/coffee/tea, etc, there's a Tesco in nearby Aviemore). There's a lovely cosy living area, with TV/DVD... More

We spent last Christmas in Miss Mackintosh's classroom and it was perfect!! The building itself is amazing and Kate has put so much effort into the decor! From the moment we arrived we were uber impressed! Once inside it instantly felt like a home from home. we loved the spiral staircase and the christmas tree was gorgeous! Kate welcomed us... More

We stayed at the Old School at the end of July for a week and had the most amazing family holiday. On arrival we were welcomed by Kate and her dogs (that our kids nearly took home!). The hospitality and friendliness shown to us during our whole stay was second to none, from the home baked (still warm!) peanut butter... More

Time again for my annual review, after our 4th visit to this beautiful place. Thanks again Kate and David for another memorable holiday. This time we stayed in Miss Mackintosh's classroom which is at the front of the house with a lovely view from the bedroom window. The addition of the Wi-Fi access was appreciated by the children, although they... More

Have just spent 3 nights at the Old School with friends and had a wonderful experience. The accommodation has been renovated to an extremely high standard, with great attention to detail. We were all impressed with the manner in which Kate and David have transformed the building, and will certainly return, hopefully in the not too distant future. Kate's banana... More

We just spent 7 days in Mrs Clarke's Classroom at the old school house with a party of five (4 adults and a seven year old). Upon arrival we were greeted by Kate's lovely chickens who later on provided us with fresh eggs almost every day! The accommodation by far exceeded our expectations in every way. The rooms were done... More

We just finished a 4 night break in The Old School and stayed in the 'Staffroom' with our 23 month old son. The only reason we didn't rent one of the classrooms was because of the spiral staircase and our son's inability to foresee danger! Kate showed us one of the classrooms and we would rent one of those next... More

Hi Nicola. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us, but I'd like to clarify a few things that you have incorrectly pointed out in your review. The Staffroom does have wifi available in the bedroom. We are about to upgrade this and will be available throughout the accommodation by the end of the year. I provide both a travel... More
