Previous visitors' comments about Kinveachy Lodge:
An excellent location for hill-walking, very reasonably priced with very comfortable rooms. An excellent laundry room for drying clothes after a wet day out. Bedrooms are very quiet even when people remain up late in the public rooms. The view to the Cairngorms at sunset is superb. The Cairngorm Brewery will deliver casks of beer and hand pumps which can be set up in the bar.

We had a great week, the staff were very friendly and helpful. We hired the chef who produced excellent meals and took away some of the stress with having such a large party. The house was comfortable with everything we would require. It was an old property but that added to its charm.

The Log Fire. The Views to the Cairngorms. Interesting Winter Activities. Adequate shops in Aviemore
Excellent chefs. Large estate with brilliant walks. We found the house & grounds safe for children aged 2, 5, 6 and 12.
