My wife booked us a week in Miss McIntosh's classroom and I'm now delighted that she did this. The quality of the accommodation is first class from the furniture to the appliances. The finishings such as tiles and joinery are superb. A lovely quiet location and very close to Carrbridge. The hot tub is excellent and it looks like we... More

We stayed in Miss MacIntosh's classroom for one week, we found the accommodation spacious, comfortable and it had everything we needed for a brilliant stay. The hot tub was fabulous, a real treat in a wonderful location. Kate was lovely and more than helpful. The location of The Old School was perfect for us as a young(ish!) family with lots... More

The Old School is just outside of Carrbridge. We stayed for 3 nights and very much enjoyed it. It has been renovated to a very high standard inside and contains nearly everything you would need. Kate, the owner, was very welcoming and made coming and going very easy for us. The kitchen is well-equipped and the bedrooms are nicely furnished.... More

My partner and I stayed at the old school for a long weekend at the beginning of February. The accommodation is luxurious and very well equipped. Our hosts Kate and David were very welcoming and accommodated our arrival and departure times to suit our travel arrangements. The highlight of the old school has to be the hot tub and sauna...

We stayed at The Old School last week on our second visit to Carrbridge. We chose this accommodation as we wanted a quite location just out of the village. The accommodation is immaculate, yet very comfy and cosy, The hot tub and sauna are a fantastic added extra, set in the garden overlooking the mountains. Kate and David were welcoming... More

I would like to start by saying the facilities are absolutely beautiful, the apparent I stayed in was lovely, the bed was very comfortable and the heated floor in the... More

We stayed here for four nights in January and couldn't fault the place. Stunning scenery, hot tub and sauna in peaceful surroundings, comfortable beds and well equipped kitchen. Kate and David were very welcoming and helpful. Loved the area and will definitely be back!

We had a whole week in the Staffroom at this peaceful location. We had great expectations as we had chosen very carefully for this special trip to Scotland - we were not disappointed! This apartment/cottage is so beautifully designed & renovated that nothing has been omitted. We slept well in the huge bed & snuggled in to watch TV on... More

Stunning design, stunning location, just stunning. Tastefully converted and contemporary designed former schools house. Perfect for touring highlands, half hour away from everything you need in inverness. Close enough to aviemore for activities but far enough away that it is a backwater- I find aviemore high street like the Blackpool of the north and ok in small doses! The woods... More

Off season, late booking, but do not regret it a moment. We were looking for something special in the north Cairngorms area and found it. We stayed in the Staffroom and had a great stay. We arrived late, not a problem, door open, nice scones awaiting for a late night snack, that is service. Livingroom/kitchen is adequate with a sofa... More
