Docharn Lodge Guest House
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Neil and Catriona are wonderful hosts who have very clean and modern accommodations. The king bed was comfy. Breakfast was delicious! The location was perfect for exploring the Cairngorms. The patio is as peaceful as the photos look. I will be going back and will probably stay longer at the Docharn when exploring the highlands.

We just left the wonderful Docharn Lodge and miss it already. We spent nearly 3 weeks traveling around Scotland and this B&B was the highest quality place we stayed in. It's better than most high end hotels I've stayed in. The house itself is beautiful, warm and inviting. Lovely terrace, lovely views. Our room had the most comfortable bed, with gorgeous quality linens and pillows, windows brought in lots of light, and Catriona even had two bottles of complementary wine waiting for us, as well as the usual tea and coffee making facilities and shortbread. There was a flatscreen TV, though we did not use it, and the wi-fi was the best and fastest we've had in Scotland. The bathroom is to die for. Drop dead gorgeous and modern, huge shower. This place really shows its quality in the details -- like providing cotton balls and Moulton Brown toiletries, including body lotion. Great high end shampoos and conditioner too. The bathroom lighting was a bit dark, though atmospheric, that's the only criticism I have. A close-up make-up mirror was provided, so I didn't have a problem.
The tasteful decor everywhere makes you feel like you are really in a boutique hotel. Breakfasts were cooked to order, and delicious. Catriona even brought out whiskey for our porridge when she heard we liked a bit in our oatmeal. The choices were the most abundant I'd seen yet. Croissants, lovely brown toast, different cheeses, so many juices I couldn't remember them all -- stunning fresh fruit salads, I could go on and on. Finally, Catriona and Neal are delightful, informative, friendly but not intrusive at all. We didn't want to leave!

Teresa, wow! Thank you so much for this fantastic review, it was very kind of you. Neil and I were delighted to have you both stay with us at Docharn and hope that you might one day return. I trust you had a good flight back to Washington DC. Happy travelling.

We found Docharn lodge through good trip advisor reviews and are very glad we came! We spent two nights in room 1, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The setting is stunning with views over to the lairig ghru and cairngorms. We saw deer grazing while having a delicious breakfast, what better way to start the day.

The room is spacious, very clean and comfortable and we were made very welcome by Catriona and Neil (we were even offered a lift over to dinner at Dalrachney lodge to let us have a drink!)

If you enjoy biking we would also recommend hiring from Adam at Boat of Garten. There are some great trails around the lochs and Osprey centre.

We are looking forward to a return visit next summer! Thanks for a lovely stay

My husband and I took our 11 year old son to Docharn Lodge for three nights and we had a delightful stay with excellent hosts, Catriona and Neil. The accommodation on offer is exceptional and not at all what we expected of our first experience staying at a B&B and puts some top end hotels in the shade. Every detail has been carefully thought out to make your stay a memorable experience. Comfortable beds, beautiful decor and luxury bathroom with our own private patio area and the most delicious breakfasts made our stay one which we will want to do again. A great location with all local attractions close to hand. We look forward to our return trip.

Room Tip: We had Room 1 wich private patio area which was ideal for a couple with one child. All rooms are b...

What a delight to stay at Docharn Lodge! Catriona and Neil were wonderful hosts who were very attentive, generous and charming. We came over from Germany to spend our first holiday in Scotland in June and are very happy to have chosen Docharn Lodge for a three-day stopover which is a wonderful location to relax and explore the Cairngorms. The area offers great mountain bike and hiking trails.

We had a fantastic room with an extremely comfortable bed and a high-tec bathroom. The breakfast was very delicious with a wide variety of fresh and home-made ingredients and a perfect americano. Catriona and Neil, thank you for your warm welcome and great hospitality. We really enjoyed our stay in your beautiful house and we would love to see you again. Docharn Lodge is a must on a trip through the highlands! Barbara and Edwin from Germany
