We loved the Muckrach! It's the epitome of a serene and welcoming country inn, beautiful both inside and out. We understand it was gut-renovated fairly recently and the results are wonderful. Public rooms are lovely, our bedroom (the Glenlivet) was charming, well sized, with all comforts. Muckrach is surrounded by green pastures, stands of trees, and lots of cows. And... More

Just back from a wedding at this hotel and cannot fault it. The hotel itself if gorgeous and the grounds are lovely. Staff were exceptionally helpful and the food was delicious. There were around 60 guests and it was the perfect size for a magical yet relaxed day. Highly recommended.

I arrived late but the hotel had kept the kitchen open for me and delivered a very tasty chicken club sandwich that was better than most chicken I've ever had. Served with a great glass of house wine that was definitely high quality. The general public areas were beautifully restored to a very high traditional quality, with a modern twist.... More

Stayed at the hotel over the weekend for a wedding where I was best man. If you're organising a wedding for around 50-60 people I'd say this the Muckrach is a great choice which ticks all the boxes - stunning scenery, friendly/helpful staff and fantastic food in a venue where it's both easy to either mingle or dance the night...

We stayed at the Muckrach Country House Hotel for two nights in July 2016. Everything about our stay was wonderful. The rooms are newly refurbished with tasteful furnishings, a comfortable bed with starched white sheets, and two comfy chairs to sit in, and the bathroom was one of the best I've had at a hotel with marble and tiles on...

Wonderful event...situated in the library, with representatives from Connage Cheese in Ardesier and Massimo from Muckrach leading us through 5 different gins. Lovely platter to accompany the cheese and gin. Good value and tremendous fun. If you get the chance to attend one if these tasting events I would highly recommend it.

We have stayed on Speyside many times but this was our first experience of Muckrach House. It did not disappoint. The building has a lot of character and no expense has been spared on the recent refurbishment. Our room was spacious and comfortable with delightful views over the surrounding hills an meadows. Food was very good and service was informal... More

Staying at Muckrach was the highlight of our ten day trip to the UK. The level of detail lavished on the property was evident in the rooms, the grounds and the superior service by the staff. The accommodations are luxurious, but the price was reasonable, especially with the exchange rate at the time of our visit. My wife and I... More

We stayed here for one night recently. The hotel is beautifully appointed, with a "country-modern" style and decor and attractive grounds. We stayed in the Glenfidditch room - very comfortable with high end bed linens and modern bathroom. We ate dinner and breakfast in the restaurant - both meals were delicious and the serving staff were very good with a... More

Beautiful country hotel with stunning rooms, exquisite interior decoration, professional staff and delicious food. Wished we could have stayed longer! Especially nice to learn that South Africans are managing the hotel and cooking the delicious food! We really felt special at the hotel and the next night we stayed at another hotel for the same price and could never, ever... More
