What a lovely B&B. Close to Aviemore but lovely and quiet. The decor throughout is gorgeous, lovely warm colours. We were upgraded for free which was an added bonus (four poster bed). And made a new friend, Archie the dog. Would stay again!!!

Very friendly atmosphere, clean rooms, nice mix of old and new. Food quality is excellent. I like the fact that pets are allowed in some of the rooms. Nice quiet surroundings on private land. The bar was well stocked, rooms have just been upgraded to a high quality.

We stayed at Dalrachney for 3 nights over New Year's Eve. The lodge has been beautifully and tastefully restored to a very high standard - lots of comfy tweed sofas, mounted stag's heads and tartan carpets to give a tasteful Scottish vibe! Our room was spectacular - the Four Poster King Suite, with great views, an incredibly comfortable bed and... More

We made a late booking for two nights at Dalrachney. We were the only guests in this beautiful atmospheric old shooting lodge. Gordon, Trixie and staff were the epitome of hosts and made us feel more like returning friends than guests. The room was spacious with fine linen and wonderful thick bathroom towels! Coming from the USA we really appreciated... More

Discovered this gem whilst staying in Carrbridge recently. Set well off the beaten track in lovely gardens the owners of the Dalrachney lodge are most welcoming. It feels like dining in a private house which it virtually is. The food was excellent and there is a wonderful selection of whiskies! I thoroughly recommend this restaurant and can't wait to pay...

We were lucky enough to stumble upon this lovely Country House Hotel after a bad experience at another establishment.

While the room facilities are gradually being updated one wouldn't want to spoil the character of the Lodge with too much 21st century glitz. It is a charming building, beautifully furnished and well maintained. Check-in took a minute or so and we were greeted with the news that since they were between shooting parties, we had been upgraded. Our room... More

First impression: gravel drive and approach; impossible to wheel luggage over. The hotel is old, in need of refreshing but the service was good. The room and bath were large and comfortable with a lovely view. Dinner was OK, but expensive. However, that's because of the pound/dollar ratio. All in all, a nice stay.

Thank you for your review and we are glad you had a nice stay. It was unfortunate that due to the exchange rate you thought your visit was expensive. Yes, the hotel is old - it is an Edwardian Hunting Lodge built in 1905 and these buildings do not have lifts, especially with only 11 bedrooms and yes - we... More

Dalrachney Lodge was a weekend retreat for us and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. This is a small, independently owned, traditional Scottish Highland hotel with friendly, kind and caring owners & staff.

Initially I thought Dalrachney Lodge might be a little too sedate. It was quiet, and on the evening we dined there our dining room companions gave old age a bad name. Sooo boring to overhear endless exchanges of recipes! But the Lodge itself is utterly delightful. We stayed two nights in an attic or rooftop room which was very comfortable... More
