I spent several days at Neil and Catriona's lovely home this past September 2016. The pastoral setting is peaceful and comforting. The home (and room) were nicely furnished and the breakfasts were excellent. But further, the hosts were genial and very welcoming. I was there because of its proximity to two golf courses I wanted to play: Kingussie and Boat...

My husband and I spent two nights at Docharn Lodge during our tour of Scotland. The Lodge is located in an elevated position outside the village of Boat of Garten with scenic views of the Cairngorm mountains and the surrounding countryside.

This was our second stay at Docharn Lodge, and as usual, it was perfect! Both Catriona and Neil are extremely accommodating and welcoming, and have great knowledge of the local area. The B&B is beautifully decorated and located on the edge of the village, with stunning views of the ski slopes. Would highly recommend this place, and we would certainly...

We stayed for 3 nights at Docharn Lodge and it was perfect. The B&B is beautiful, and the room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Catriona and Neil were superb hosts - extremely helpful in providing restaurant ideas and walking routes. On arrival, we were welcomed with a cup of tea and a plate of biscuits. Breakfasts were delicious, and there...

In all the places i've stayed, rarely do i feel the need to write a review simply to say how amazing it is. People might see this as quite a pricey B&B, but you need to be mindful of the fact this is aviemore and this is no ordinary B&B. It's actually far cheaper than some of the other B&Bs...

Fabulous stay at this most beautiful and welcoming B&B. The owners Neil & Catriona were perfect hosts. The breakfast choice was unbelievable and the little extras in the modern room (Molton Brown toiletries, chocs, wine and daily bottled water) were a lovely touch. Faultless stay! Fabulous views of the Cairngorms on our private patio area. Stayed 3 nights. Expensive compared...
