Andy and Rebecca were wonderful hosts. We were warmly welcomed and quickly felt at home. During our visit we enjoyed fascinating conversations with Andy who has a huge amounts of knowledge about the area and is a qualified International Mountain Leader. The accommodation was priced very reasonably and included a tasty breakfast with home made jams created from fruits grown... More

We were on a motorcycle trip through Scotland and had been stayed there for two days in this family guided B&B and we were satisfied. The host family is very friendly and welcoming. It's a quite and relaxing place. The room was not equipped with a tv but we didn't miss one.:) In the proximity you'll find everything for your... More

I visited Boat of Garten for a guided hiking tour and can say it was fantastic. To stay here was as like as to be a member of the family. This place is really good suitable for hiker and People who love nature and slow food.

A disappointing stay for 2 nights in June. All the nice things that we had read in the reviews unfortunately could not be said for our trip. Certainly not a warm welcome- shoes off, coffee? This before we were even into their porch! Not even a 'hello' or ' how was your journey?' Shared a new en-suite room at the... More

I'm sorry you didn't consider your stay value for money but the price did include a transfer of over 130 miles round to the Linn of Dee plus a pick up at Whitewell; a thorough briefing to help with the route (plus maps), packed lunch for your day's hike through the Lairig Ghru and a late dinner especially for you...

We visited during the gentleman of the road festival so the whole area was crazy busy. Generally this place does exactly what it says on the tin and not too noisy nor too crowded, we met some interesting characters including Andy the owner and his son! His wife and his mother were both lovely and the place was clean enough... More

My 3rd visit to Fraoch Lodge and I had a great time again. The walking holiday (Classic Mountain Horseshoes) was fantastic - especially Ben Nevis via the Cairn Mor Dearg Arete. Andy's Mountain Guiding skills are second to none. As always, Fraoch Lodge offered a very comfortable retreat after a hard day on the hills - Rebecca's cooking is superb!!... More

The perfect highland location for small groups or large. The lodge fit all fifteen of us (on a school class trip) quite comfortably, with two or three to a room, and enough bathrooms for all of us. The lodge included a guest kitchen (where we put together lunches with the delicious, fresh ingredients provided by our hosts), a living room/lounge... More
