I stayed in Nethy House with a group of 18- year-old students. They simply loved it - especially because of our great hosts Richard and Patricia. They turned this stay into an experience that none of us will forget.

I had the pleasure of organising a stag doo as the best man, we settled on nethy bridge and stayed at the converted railway station!

We had a fantastic time and our hostesess with the mostess Richard! looked after us our whole time there, the accomdation is basic but thats exaclty what we wanted and it was great to have the place to ourselves. Plenty washing facillites and cooking facillites and great to have the big benches in the kitchen, we will always be grateful to Richard for helping us apologise to he neighbours for "borrowing" their wood! I will never forget Richards explanation of the love shack and proceeded to show its strong by shaking it!! He also organised our taxis into aviemore, a indian buffett, highland games and just in general looked after us when we needed it! Highly recommned it and we will be back one day!

Many thanks for your kind words. I know that Richard will always do what he can and he, too, has some amusing tales to say about your stay! I do hope that we may see you all again soon.

Have stayed here a couple of times now with groups of teenagers and absolutely love it. The tiered bunk system and rustic charm of the place (not to mention the extremely genial and welcoming host, Richard!) have been much appreciated.

Keep on keepin' on!

For a stag weekend you couldnt ask for a better set-up. Amazingly helpful and friendly staff who let you get on with your own thing and enjoy the facilities. I would recommend this place to any stag party as it has everything. Top notch Abernethy Bunkhouse - great work guys!! D

Thanks for that - it is so nice when we know that people have had a good time. I see that you were in the bigger house and of course that has the bar and the hats - but, when we build our new one we shall have the same facilities! We seem to have a lot of stags and hens nowadays - I think because you get the whole place to yourself - saves hassles and grumpy fellow guests!

i organised my husbands 50th gathering here at Nethy house, as the reviews looked excellent on here. A group of 44 thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and had a fabulous time. The hostel is in such a beautiful part of scotland and easily accessed from the A9 through the Heart of the Highlands! On the friday night i had arranged for a Quiz for our party and that was so much fun,our friends Sharon and Stevie took on this role with a lot of shouting at times disagreeing over the correct answers which where in the quiz book!!!
After the quiz i had organised for Kareoke , but the quiz finished late so folk went through to the cosy snug bar, which had a lovely atmosphere for an unmanned bar, we made our own entertainment . i had taken up a wee music centre and various cds and set this up in the bar,and when you have all your friends and family around its just perfect.
Meal times ran like clockwork, and the kitchen was fab and had everything i needed to cook for everyone. the best plan with a big party is to put everyone in an orderly queue and serve up food for them, so my sisters and i did just that, especially when folk had a few drinks in them!!!so we where glamourous dinner ladies for a while on the friday night!!!
The saturday some of us went through to Aviemore which is a lovely wee town with some gid pubs, especially the Papa Rocks and The winking Owl ! A few of us had been up to this area a few times in the past and the area is fabulous for skiing and walking which is what a lot of us like in the crowd, but this weekend was a celebration weekend so just took to drinking and having a gid time that way for a change!!! we arrived back to the hostel late afternoon and decided too have the BBQ indoors as the weather wasnt to gid, so i was glad i brought my Jumbe size GEORGE FOREMAN for back-up as this cooked 100 burgers !!! 100 sausages where cooked in the oven , and i cooked the steaks on top of the stove, the steak came from the local buthcher and was just first class, everyone commented how tender it was and the best steak they had every had, so compliments to the local buthcher in the village of Nethy bridge for supplying our meat!!! when everything was cooked everything was put in the hot plate and this was great for everyone helping them selves as and when,throughout the evening.
The entertainment i had arranged for saturday night was a band called The Racketeers a cover band from scotlands central belt. They did rock covers including Kings of leon, coldplay, rolling stones, etc, every song was just ACE and folk where up dancing most of the time just having a ball.!!!so would definately recommend this band for anyone looking for this type of music for your bash here, as they know the lay out now.The band stayed at the hostel with us on the Saturday night so they didnt have to travel back that night. after they had played, most folk went through to the cosy snug bar and contiued partying!!
This is such a great venue for a gathering and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone planning a get together, ideal for putting on your own entertainment, there is a pub accross the road, but most of us didnt even see it as we had our own entertainment and cosy bar!probably the best in the area that weekend for a while.
I would like to say a very personel THANK-YOU to Richard and Patricia, and Richard was very helpful and approachable .(Shame we didnt get to meet you Patricia on this visit, hopefully next time.) We had invited them to our entertainment but couldnt make if, such a shame as they would have loved it for sure.Your venue is a special place and you should both be very proud of it for giving gatherings such an experience and happy memories to take away with them for years to come. we would love to come back in the future and stay again, Our kindest regards to you both .

Talis, that is so kind to write such a great review. I, too, am sorry that I didn't get to meet you due to that stupid migraine! We really appreciate feedback, as you know and can take criticism but this has made my day. Yes, I agree, Mike Mustard's meat is good and often given as a reason that people moved to Nethy Bridge! Thanks for taking the time to review us.

This is the fourth time we have taken the HUB network scout event back to Nethybridge and this was the busiest. With over 50 participants from across Scotland there are a range of expectations when they all arrive on the Friday evening,But when they leave on the Sunday it's safe to say that all these expectiations have been met if not exceeded. A key to that is the warm wlecome and great facilities on offer in and around Nethyhouse. The owners are very helpful and flexible in the run up to the event when the numbers and requirements of the group are changing on a daily basis and they are always willing to pop down to the centre to help us locate the controls for the TV or chalk for the pool table ;). Their local knowledge and contact list is also an great resource, whether it's a massage you're looking for or 5 kegs of beer they can put you in touch with the right person.

The centre itself offers great facilties. The rooms are spacious and functional. The showers and toilet facitiles can cope with even the messiest of groups. The bar is agreat facility with TV, darts, pool and a disco area it ticks all the boxes and you can set the prices :) A cheap night in. The catering facilties are also ideal for big groups with ample storage in the basement and food deliveries to the door. The local shop and butchers are handy for the bits and pieces you may have forgot.

The large playing fields over the bridge are great for big events and the numerous paths and wlaks in the local are can be utilised for walking/ cycling or running (we had folk doing all of these this weekend). Parking is good and it's easy to find.

There is porbably an awful lot more I could say but I ned to get back to work.

Thanks again Richard and Patricia I know we'll be back next year.

Room Tip: Ones without folk who snore will generally improve the quality of your sleep. Room 2 can be a bit no...

Thank you very much for your super comments about our larger Abernethy Bunkhouse - Nethy House. It is always appreciated when people take the trouble to comment as it is all useful for later visitors.
It is an ageing property, and like its owners, feeling the occasional twang of old age - but it is still very popular with groups like yours for whom a hotel is not really an option!
We always look forward to your group and travel experience does go both ways. Thoughtful guests always make for better service.
