We had a brilliant weekend here. We don't have a car, so we came on the train to Carrbridge, which turns out to be a pretty little village with amazing forest and hill walks in all directions, and an equally great social life at busier times of year (including the Golden Spurtle World Porridge Making Championships and a chainsaw sculpture...

Fantsatic welcome from James and Maria into their wonderful guest house. We had a lovely stay with our little boy and couldn't fault anything. First class breakfast set us up for the day visiting the local area. Would highly recommend anyone putting this on the top of their list for a great stay.

The guest house is warm, spotless, welcoming and the highland full breakfast is to die for. Our eldest daughter is still raving about the "best porridge with maple syrup ever". A great base for all your highland exploring... More

James and Maria are very friendly hosts and gave us great advice where to go out for dinner (the pub next door that wouldn't have chosen by ourselves but was great). We had room 1 (twin) that has the - private - bathroom just opposite the corridor. Everything is very clean. The house is older and the floors are a... More

The Craigellachie Guest House was recommended by another Guest House that was full for the dates we wanted to book and we were absolutely delighted with the recommendation! One of the best guest houses we have stayed in. Very, very clean, tidy and James and Maria are welcoming without being intrusive. Really nice breakfast, well cooked and good choice. Lots... More
