Crash out on a deep and squishy sofa and enjoy a DVD whilst your prized pets curl up cosily at your feet.

Great location to explore the area around Aviemore and the mountains. So many activities within 10 miles Mountain biking for all levels, golf, walking and water sports to name a few. The beach at Loch Morlich is a must for kids and dogs. Castle was nice and warm for the hole break with cold temperatures outside and the log fire was great with a gooRead mored stock of logs. Would highly recommend. Hide

The castle was spotless comfy and cosy, the grandchildren loved the whole castle experience. Had some great days out on the sledges with all the snow we had. Just loved the place.

After a few days in bustling London and Edinburgh, the slow pace of the country was just what we wanted. Our family enjoyed our favorite evenings together, playing Bananagrams and working on a jigsaw puzzle. We visited the Rothimurchus Centre, and the Reindeer Centre, for full days, and enjoyed home-cooked meals using the well-appointed kitchen at Read morethe castle. Hide
