We spent 6 nights at Dalrachney and had an extremely peaceful, relaxing time. Breakfast is delicious and unrushed, in the evenings we sat by the fire with a nightcap and relaxed even more ! We ate in the Bistro on our first night and had locally sourced meals that were freshly prepared and very tasty. Gordon and Trixie are always...

We last visited the Dalrachney about 20 years ago. It has the same charm as before but much much more of a luxury feel. The bathroom was the best hotel bathroom we have ever had (powerful hot shower, immaculate tiling, not a hint of bodge job). The bed was the comfiest hotel bed we have ever slept in. Not too...

This old hunting lodge has a lot of character. Coal fires in the evening great for a relaxing night in with drinks and board games. This has the feeling that you're Airbnb-ing in a friends stately home, rather than staying in a hotel. The owners are definitely foodies. Great selection of meals and wine. They mentioned in passing they only...

Wanted to revisit Carrbridge after some 38 years away! Dalrachney Lodge is a wonderful place to stay with the most pleasant, attentive proprietors and staff. Accommodation is very comfortable and the food (particularly breakfast) is excellent - just what one needs for a winter visit! We were the only guests during our stay so we were somewhat of a 'captured...

We had 3 nights here with a family of 4 adults and 2 children and felt very comfortable and well cared for. We were the only 2 rooms booked in the lodge due to the time of year which made it a bit quiet in the lovely lounge and dining room but the food was excellent and the selection of...

Stumbled upon this place listing and was pleasantly surprised when we first arrived there. The location is serene and has plenty of outdoor space. The proprietors are very warm and accommodating, coupled with the interiors gives us family atmosphere. The room we stayed at had an extremely spacious and classically decorated bathroom. This area is suitable for long walks and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dalrachney Lodge is an independent family run Country House Hotel in Carrbridge in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. We recognise how precious your relaxation and holiday time is away from home and we aim to provide a tranquil environment in which to enjoy our wonderful surroundings. Dalrachney Lodge a former Edwardian Hunting Lodge, is set in 3 acre grounds within the Cairngorms National Park and rests directly beside our own 1 km stretch of the Dulnain River. Our Bistro menu features locally sourced food and a good selection of whiskies. We have Egyptian cotton bed linen, Heirlooms towels and Floris toiletries in all rooms. Our Superior rooms have handmade Savoir Super King size beds. Having taken over just two years ago, a substantial renovation project is ongoing which has seen our Drawing Room and Bar/Bistro refurbished and completion of two new bedrooms with new en-suite bathrooms. In March 2015 a biomass boiler system was installed and another two new bathrooms have been completed. Investment in the Hotel is continuing with work starting on updating more bathrooms later in the year and a self-catering cottage will be available for rental in the Summer. We hope you will come and enjoy our Scottish hospitality and all the Cairngorms has to offer. ... more   less
