My husband and I didn't intend playing golf every day of our holiday but we couldn't resist it. Lovely course, challenging, amazing views, well maintained, great staff nothing was too much trouble. Make sure you have plenty of balls.

The main problem was breakdown of communication. The accommodation was not as we had booked which caused great embarrassment. After two days we were offered another house, but with a further charge. The house was well equipped, clean. Bathrooms needed a little TLC. Patio area was very tired. BBQ was not fit for purpose and garden furniture was poor with... More

My reservations were made through Intervals International. This place was rated as one of the "premier" locations; pictures of rooms looked good and comfy. Unfortunately the reality was not so much. The first accommodation we (my cousin and I) were given was a "chalet". Nope, not what you would think! Pealing paint inside and out. Dank, moldy smell. Sofa in... More

Timeshare exchange with DAE for a family holiday in Scotland, allocated to a Chalet, a wooden version of a slightly large static caravan (I haven't been in a caravan since I was 10!) wasn't sure what to expect as we're used to our own space, extra bathrooms, wifi etc. It is small but actually quite cosy, it's not luxurious but...

A fantastic sojourn to the golfing Mecca that is Spey Valley. Stayed in the Golf and Country Club. Very tidy and always a pleasure. Golf course is fantastic and also 9-hole internal course to go round which is getting more and more attention as the years go by. Would like to see a lot more invested into the Spey Valley... More
