I stayed at Fraoch Lodge for five nights and I absolutely recommend it. It is a family run B&B with strong emphasis on being eco-friendly; rooms are very simple, clean and cozy; bathrooms are shared but well maintained and clean; breakfast is good with excellent home baked bread and home made marmalade and there is an option to choose a cooked breakfast. The dining room and lounge are cozy and convivial with stoves and fireplace and there is a kitchen at guests disposal if you wish to cook.
Yes there is a 'no-shoes' policy, waste recycling rules and you have to strip your own bed on departure, but owners Andy and Rebecca are welcoming, friendly and helpful and show genuine interest in their guests.
Andy is a fantastic guide if you want to explore the Cairngorms and Scotland and if you have the opportunity try Rebecca's great cakes and dinners.

Each bedroom has its own hand basin.There is a comfortable guest lounge, which is one of the highlights of a stay at Fraoch Lodge. Most guests very much enjoy the opportunity to sit by the open fire and share their experiences. We don’t have a TV but the fire/conversation seems to provide enough entertainment along with the cards and games behind the sofa. ... more less
