We stayed two nights in August. The new owners had been in about a month and made us very welcome. Complimentary Scotch on arrival a v pleasant touch. Good breakfast and a very spacious comfortable room. Didn't use the honesty bar but it was a nice touch, along with the complimentary cake every day. Lovely setting, quiet with local walks... More

We recently stayed at the fairwinds. They are under new ownership but we were still able to meet Lindsay and Allison as they were helping out the new owners. This place was very nice, clean and in a good location to visit the Cairngorms and whiskey distileries. The town was very small but had a quaint pub that we visited... More

Great lodges in a perfect location, short walk from Landmark so ideal if visiting with kids. Lodges are clean and well equipped. Grounds are kept lovely. Would visit again without hesitation. Very reasonably priced

A lovely place sat in the middle of peaceful grounds. We all enjoyed walks in the woods looking for wildlife. Rooms were large, comfortable and clean. Homemade cake in the rooms was a perfect touch. We were in Osprey and our friends were in a room on the ground floor which was like a self contained flat. Lyndsay and Alison... More

I come to Scotland every year with a walking group and Fairwinds Chalets are amongst the best chalets we've stayed in. They're in a lovely location in the hotel grounds, situated around a pond and surrounded by mature pine trees. There are red squirrels in the grounds, and owls can be heard in the evening. The chalets themselves are attractively... More

Nice warm welcome, shown menu on arrival and meal was cooked to perfection. Enjoyed the welcoming dram! We wound down after a busy day (and a lot of travelling) chatting to the other guests in the comfortable conservatory and when bed finally called we slept like logs! Again, breakfast was perfect and my wife particularly enjoyed the fresh fruit available.... More

Not our first visit to Fairwinds, and definitely not our last. Food to die for in a gorgeous location - so quite and peaceful. Our hosts Lindsay and Alison catered for our every need. A lovely touch is the honesty bar. Sublime!

Set back from the road, Fairwinds Hotel provided just what we needed for our final stay of our much needed holiday. We arrived to find red squirrels on the feeder which delayed us leaving the car because our view was so good! Our room was exceptionally comfortable and the service and food at both dinner and breakfast was delicious and... More
