“Speyside Way walkers from York”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Very welcoming. Transported 4 walkers from end and to start of 3 days walking. Accommodation excellent, breakfast great, check out the black pudding and the size of the on-site free range eggs! Packed lunches available on request. Hosts Jenny and John very friendly.
This was the best of 5 B&Bs used on our Speyside Way walk.

This is a great B&B - in fact the best B&B I have ever stayed in. The welcome, the rooms and the breakfast were all absolutely first class and significantly better than many hotels that I have stayed in. If you are looking for a base in Moray or the Cairngorms this is really a fantastic option!

Just returned from walking part of the Speyside Way as a party of 5 ladies of 'a certain age'. Jenny and John put us all up in their lovely home and went out of their way to make us comfortable. Rooms and bathrooms were spotless, food was excellent and very good value, and the location is stunning. Our hosts really 'went the extra mile', helping us 'oldies' with lifts when we arrived cold and wet in nearby Cromdale. I can heartily recommend the accommodation 'Bedrock' has to offer.

We booked here again after having such a wonderful stay last time. It did not disappoint.

The location is perfect for skiing as it is central to all the ski resorts in Scotland. John has lots of knowledge of the area and made some great recommendations where to hire snowboarding and ski equipment as well as the best places to go for our ability.

The rooms are comfortable, quiet and clean. The decor is very tasteful. I particularly enjoyed the selection of tea, coffee, hot chocolate, cup a soup and flavoured water in the room. The endless jar of local shortcake biscuits was a very nice touch.

The breakfast was also very nice, generous portions and lovely eggs from the chickens in the garden.

Thank you Jenny and John for a wonderful stay, and making us feel welcome and at home. Nothing was too much trouble for you. We will definitely book again for the next ski season.

My partner and I travelled the Scottish highlands from Canada and stayed at John and Jenny's B&B in the Cairngorm's national park. The accomodation was the best of all the places we stayed in Scotland. I had the best sleep of my whole trip!!!! The room was beautifully decorated, the surroundings were peaceful and the scenery gorgeous.They welcomed us with so much kindness and attentiveness. We were even greeted with cupcakes on our arrival. We had a delicious breakfast both days and even got a complimentary drive to the foot of the mountains for a hike. They also had many great recommendations for exploring the area. We purchased "refreshments" for our two nights and John and Jenny were so kind to put it in their own refridgerator so that it stayed cold. We were blown away by their incredible hospitality and would gladly return there in a heartbeat!!!! Cheryl & Adam, Grimsby Ontario

My daughter and I stayed with John and Jenny during our roadtrip through Scotland. After a disasterous first night in Grantown-on-Spey, we were lucky enough to find the Bedrock through Trip Advisor.
Lovely room and lovely people. The views were spectacular. Very affordable, gorgeous breakfast, and could not have felt more welcome.
Could not recommend it more.

We stayed in April for 3 nights. Jenny and John were really accomodating and made us feel very welcome. The food was fantastic and I am a vegetarian which was no problem, I got a full vegetarian breakfast instead :-) (I hate it when the only other things people offer is egg on toast).
The double room was really clean and very nicely furnished. Plenty of room to store all our clothes etc. The shower was powerful & nice and hot and the en-suite was a good size.
The location was lovely, we did a few nice walks along the river spey and from Grantown on Spey. We are hoping to return in November and we can do some more walking and biking knowing we have a warm cosy B&B to return to.
