We have just had a 5 day wonderful break a the Dulaig staying with Gordan and Carol. I had my 50th birthday whilst there and they made it really special by putting up banners making me a lovely chocolate cake and giving me a gift. They couldn't do enough for us and nothing was too much trouble, even taking us to our meal the night of my birthday, in a neighbouring town, to a place that they had recommended and that proved to be wonderful.
The Dulaig is a beautiful building which has been lovingly decorated and furnished to the highest standard by Carol and Gordan, and the bedrooms are wonderful. The cake fairy came every day with something homemade by carol and gordan and we looked forward to seeing what was waiting for us in our room when we returned from a long day out, They are very knowledgeable about the area and can recommend pubs restaurants places to go etc. The gardens are lovely with wild ducks on the pond and pheasants strutting round and numerous birds to look at. The breakfasts are to die for with so much choice and everything is fresh and locally sourced. The eggs are fresh from their own chickens, This was really a special place to spend my birthday with friends and I couldn't recommend it highly enough to anyone who wants to stay in a comfortable, luxurious and friendly home with wonderful hosts. Keep on doing what you do best Carol and Gordan, we will be back.

The best way I can describe the Dulaig is to say that it is obvious that Carol and Gordon love what they are doing here. The house is beautiful, beds are unbelievably comfortable, and everything is spotlessly clean. Our hosts were friendly and the town was very nice to walk to dinner in after a long day driving around the area.

As most other reviewers have said, the breakfasts are amazing. Also, every day we found a different homemade 'sweet treat' in the room waiting for us, which was very nice! If you like friendly people, good food, and comfortable accommodations, we would recommend the Dulaig without hesitation!

This was the best place we stayed during our two week vacation in Scotland. Carol and Gordan made us feel like guests in their home. The home was lovely and very comfortable and welcoming. The breakfasts were surpurb. Thanks for a great stay. We hope to return!

Beautifully restored house and gardens with genuinely helpful and friendly hosts. The standard of room, service and food could not be better. This is a must stay venue if you are in this area and we will most certainly return. This was the perfect luxurious start to our holiday.

Very nice and confy room, beautyfull bathroom, all the treats in the world on courtesy tray and a pleasant view on the amazing garden. Carol, that will cuddle you with her husband Gordon through all your stay, will prepare for you a super tasty breakfast . All the rooms in the house are classy and elegant. We were welcomed with a nice cup of coffee and cake and shown around with kindness and professionality at the same time.
You fill at home and just wish you could stay longer!
Can't wait to be back.

The accomodation was remarkable, not only for the tastful finish of the beautiful building and grounds but for the degree of detail in every aspect. The owners obviously love their house and it shows. They are both extremely helpful and the breakfast is as elegant and as good as the rest. We are looking forward to returning.

Room Tip: Any, they are all good

If you are planning a visit to Inverness or the Cairngorms National Park stay here. The faultless standard of the rooms and the gargantuous home made fresh breakfasts (with delcious cinnamon toast ) aren't just what make that makes this place special. The hosts, Carol and Gordon are the warmest and most helpful people you will ever meet. They know everything about the area and were invaluable in ensuring that our stay in the Cairngorms included activities (such as feeding reindeer high up in the mountains) that we didn't even know exisited and which made our holiday extra special. Carol, Gordan,The Dulaig and their warm Scottish hospitality will be an experience to be remembered for many years. We are going back!!
