Very friendly. A wealth of experience on hand to discuss the days plans. Well set up for early starts and drying wet kit etc. A cup of tea and a cake next to the fire in the sitting room when you get in. Meals in are good and if you want to go out there are good options within walking... More

We had a lovely stay over the New Year, with Fraoch Lodge the perfect base for exploring the Cairngorms, Aviemore, Grantown-on-Spey etc.. The house is extremely cosy and Andy and Rebecca and especially wee Gregor, are the perfect hosts. It felt like a true home from home and we will definitely be back.

We had a lovely weekend stay at Fraoch Lodge. The house was beautifully furnished and very cosy and welcoming. Rebecca and Andy's son Gregor made us laugh. Just wish we'd had more time to sit and enjoy the cosy sitting room (we had a party to go to).

My family and I have been staying here for the last 3 years and have enjoyed it every time. The location is perfect for skiing in the Cairngorms and is close to Aviemore (10 minutes away). Rebecca and Andy are perfect hosts. Their hearty breakfast prepares you for the day ahead, and both hosts are very knowledgeable of the local... More

Lovely village, next to a wonderful restaurant. Very friendly people. The owner is a mountaineering enthusiast, which can be very helpful for choosing hikes in the Cairngorms. Small living room with a fireplace, great during the colder days of the year. Decent breakfast, including homemade and organic marmelade.

We were completing a hike of the Speyside Way and stayed at the Lodge in September. The owners were away on a trip and Karen, the housekeeper was our hostess. She was extremely helpful and the dinner she cooked was exceptional. The price for our stay was quite reasonable and the rooms were clean and adequate. I have stayed in... More

Very cool welcome from Andy. Smooth atmosphere and nice bedrooms. Andy is a very good guide as said a french women we met there (we unfortunately had no time to treck in the mountains) and gave us nice advice. Congratulation for Rebecca who is a perfect cooker. Do not hesitate to book for diner. Marc and Florence CHAVAND

We had two nights with Rebecca and Andy, welcomed with a cup of tea, and a very comfortable room and a great breakfast. Great knowledge of the area. I wish I had longer there and taken some of the walks in the area. Highly recommend a stay there. Rebecca even baked her own bread and jams top stuff!

Single room does what it says on the tin, comfy, clean and warm. On my own, I would have liked a key, but it didn't bother me enough to ask! Loads of hot water, good working shower. Kitchen well equipped, nice to chillax after viewing Harleys all day in Aviemore! Bus stops just outside, meant I didn't bother taking L/rover,... More
