I recently visited Achnagonalin House with a few friends and family for a birthday getaway. Upon arrival we were so surprised at the house! By looking at pictures we knew it would be a beautiful place but were really taken aback at just HOW lovely it was. The interior didn’t disappoint either. With more rooms than you will ever need for a price that - in comparison to many others we looked at - just couldn’t be beat in terms of value. Each room was fresh, spotless and welcoming. Despite going up in thick snow we were NEVER cold, and had many cosy nights in front of the log fire. Amenities are relatively close and the walk or drive is half the fun, getting to take in some really lovely scenery. I would recommend to anyone looking for the perfect mix of relaxing down time with the option to go out and explore. Thank you, we will be back!
The house was perfectly prepared for our arrival and entirely suited our needs as a fishing party. It would do equally well as a holiday base for a family/families. The bedrooms are all of a good size and all the reception rooms are comfortable and well furnished. The drawing room has an excellent fire and there was a plentiful supply of firewood provided. The dining room is a good size with a table and chairs that encourage long convivial dinners! Our wonderful cook confirmed that the kitchen was excellently equipped. The games room was greatly enjoyed with the pool/billiards table being used nightly! While we didn't meet the property manager (as we had no problems), she responded to the one query we had (to do with the hot water system) immediately, clearly and effectively. We will certainly return.
Love house with great view and surrounding. The communication with Malcolm was great. We enjoyed our stay.
We had a fantastic break at Achnagonalin House. The house was perfect for the family and the kids and had everything we needed. The kids disappeared into the lovely garden area to play football and rounders - yes there is that much space!!
Easy reach into Grantown and Spey. We walked in a couple of times for dinner when we didn't want to take a car.
Lots to do in the area and come home to lovely log fire.
We will definately be back.
Thanks the McMahon family.
Came here with a group of friends. Had an excellent time. Not one single fault. Garden is huge so lots of outdoor games played. Will defo come again.
Visited Scotland with a group of 12 people. Everybody was so happy with this fantastic home. The two young teenagers were especially happy with the room were they could watch DVD's and get away from us adults. And i addition to that they had the pool room and the tabletennis room as well.
This house is the perfect place to stay if you´re exploring Speyside since there are a lot of whisky destilleries in the surroundings. If you´re going to Glenlivet, take the Old Military Road which is to the right one mile north from the house.
We all would be so happy to come back again.
Just one thing, the house isn't easy to find, but if you ask around you will eventually be invited for a drink by the neighbours.
