Another glorious week spent at Alvey House in the middle of the glorious Highlands. As a young family (3 year old and 6 year old) we have been back to Alvey again and again. There is so much to do in the area and as Roy and Margaret (our hosts) have grandchildren of their own, they are always able to direct us to the best spots to keep the kids entertained, rain or shine (or both as is often the case!).
A traditional Victorian home which has been tastefully converted to a guest house with a variety of rooms, Alvey is full of charm and character.
As ever, our room (this time the large family room, though we have previously used the combination of double/twin and single) was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. There was a child monitor left in the room for us so that we could put the kids to bed then head down to the guest lounge for a tipple in front of the fire before retiring ourselves.
Each morning a full cooked breakfast set us up for the day and our hosts even put together a packed lunch for us on the days that requested.
Once again we were sad to leave but know that we will be north bound on the A9 again soon.
