“A wee gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2010

This is a fabulous spot. The owner Kate is very helpful and friendly as are her 3 gorgeous labradors! There are 3 apartments in this converted school house. Beautifully appointed, very comfortable. We didn't want to leave. In terms of location, Carrbridge is a few miles outside of Aviemore. There are good cycle routes on the doorstep as well as Landmark - a fantastic adventure park for kids (young and not so young)

Can't fault the place. We'll definitely be back.

The Old School is the best holiday accommodation we have ever found in Scotland and the owner, Kate, made us extremely welcome. She is deservedly very proud of her business and went out of her way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The cottage was immaculate, very spacious and no expense has been spared in it's renovation. The bed was huge and extremely comfortable, the bathrooms were luxurious, the spiral staircase amazing and the children were fascinated by the ice dispenser in the enormous fridge!
The children loved playing with the very friendly resident dogs and enjoyed being so close to The Landmark Centre at Carrbridge which is a great day our for families. The location between Grantown and Aviemore gives a good choice of places to eat and attractions to visit. We will definitely be returning next year and would reccommend The Old School to everyone.
