We've stayed at the Fairwinds 3 times over the past 12 years now and each time has been a fantastic visit, without fail. The owners Alison and Lindsey are friendly and cannot do enough for you. They really add that finishing touch to your stay through making you feel like you're 'part of the family'. We've stayed in the chalets each time, and the tranquillity of the surroundings is just perfect for a quiet retreat away in the country for a few days. The chalets sit around the lochan nestled in the woods of Carrbridge. There are many beautiful woodland walks at your fingertips from the premises and the lovely village of Carrbridge is just a 5 minute walk. Value for money is average. They also open the restaurant in the hotel building (which was an old manse) to non-hotel-residents. Lindsey's cooking is FANTASTIC, she has the potential to be a cook in a five star restaurant! The only real downside to our stays here is that the track leading up to the hotel and the paths around are poorly lit as it can get very dark up there, very quickly. Secondly, the decor of the chalets has a lot to be desired, it's very pine and 80's, however it adds to the cabin feel. Overall though, we'd go back again!
