The Auld Alliance is not only a great base from which one can explore the Cairngorm area, it offers the best food of any guest house we have ever encountered. Lydie, who runs the guest house provides French cuisine of the highest quality. Breakfast each morning is a beautifully presented mix of fresh local produce and homemade breads/croissants. We opted to stay in for dinner and were not disappointed. Each one of the four courses was an absolute delight. A great 'alliance' between French culinary skills and fresh Scottish produce.
The room was very clean, comfortable, spacious and well appointed with beautiful views of the Spey valley. The house is tastefully restored with many interesting artifacts and paintings. After a day of walking in Cairngorm National Park, what better than to return to a roaring log fire in Lydie's lounge, followed by a such excellent cuisine.
