We were let down by a really disappointing air b&b and called Docharn on the off chance they might have a room, thank goodness they did, this was one of the best b&bs ive ever been to and I spend 130 nights a year in hotels and b&bs! The welcome could not be any warmer, it was like going to stay with dear friends, Neil gave us lot of tips on where to find the best wildlife, all of which paid off and our stay was beyond brilliant! The rooms are comfortable, they’ve thought of everything, they are modern have electricity by the bed and the bed was really comfortable. Then there is the breakfast, I don’t think we had lunch once during our stay, we were still full from the delicious breakfast in the evening! It is certainly in my top ten cooked breakfasts Thank you both for our lovely stay, we hope to come back soon

Great long weekend. The lodge itself is stunning, with great views, local walks and Neil and Catriona were lovely and very helpful. Being a new lodge it was very modern, unbelievably clean and we will definitely be back. All the very best

Myself and my partner stayed for one night and we couldn’t fault it. We were greeted with an incredibly warm and friendly welcome from Neil and Catriona. The house itself is immaculate, with beautiful snow capped mountain views. The breakfast was delicious. Wonderful attention to detail- we’ve stayed in a lot of places in the Highlands and this is well and truly on our favourites list, you’ll struggle to find anywhere better.
