  • "We visit Scotland often and have stayed in several properties over the years but this has been the best."

    Lynne was such a lovely lady and apart from the stylish, comfortable property, which lacked nothing you would need for a wonderful stay, there were lots of lovely little extra touches you don’t normally get. Lynne has got it absolutely right with both the property and her lovely way with people

  • "The lodge was far more than we expected."

    Lynne really has thought of everything you would need and want. The personal touches on arrival are not only delicious but well received. I would go as far to say you just need to take your family and clothes, everything and I mean everything you need is there. There was lots of information about the local area and things to do. The garden area is very secure for our dogs, well one dog and a diva. Even they had their treats.. we had an amazing time and Lynne was so helpful and friendly. The view everyday was breathtaking Thank you and I would highly recommend this property to everyone.

  • "A lovely cosy lodge with all the comforts!"

    The owners made us feel very welcome. This lodge is kept to the highest standard and was an absolute pleasure to stay in. Situated in a lovely area with woodland directly behind the house which is accessed by a garden gate and surrounded by great views. Lots of bird life and wildlife visits the garden too, including Red Squirrels.The village of Nethy Bridge is lovely with a well stocked shop & post office, there is also a brilliant farm shop and tea rooms. The location has easy access to others places of interest and the landscape is spectacular. We had a terrific holiday here, we were sorry to leave, we would definitely go back. Highly recommended!

    Really well-equipped throughout. Thoughtful touches included all the maps, local guides, the binoculars to watch the birds and red squirrel. And the welcome pack was amazing!

  • "The house is not large but very well equipped and had everything we needed for a great holiday."

    The garden gate opens directly onto the Abernethy forest which allowed us easy access to endless walking, running and cycling routes. The welcome box of goodies was fantastic too!

  • "Lynne and Simon gave us a very warm and informative welcome shortly after our arrival and they had the wonderful Culreach Lodge spotless, with everything we needed including a fabulous welcome hamper & wedding gift including delicious homemade goodies for our 2 week honeymoon stay (thank you both once again!"

    ). The Lodge is in a beautiful, quiet area with spacious grounds which allowed our two dogs to run around and enjoy also. Lots of visiting birds in the garden and a huge woodland to the rear of the property to explore too (but beware of the Ticks on your dogs that were prevelant around the bracken at that time we went!). The lodge has been recently refurbished with modern fittings, a real home from home feel with pretty much everything we needed which made for a memorable and enjoyable stay. A small magnified make up mirror at the dressing table would have been useful (for the shortsighted like me!) but there was plenty of large mirrors to use and it wasn't a necessity. The bed was super comfy and the shower was a good pressure with an adjustable temperature. We were 5 minutes by car to Nethy Bridge, 10 minutes to Grantown-on-Spey and 25 minutes to the larger town of Aviemore. Lots to explore around the area and beyond and we used the A-Z atlas of Scotland that Lynne & Simon had left amongst other literature to use whilst staying there. On returning later at night after long days out, it was difficult to locate the entrance without any lights or reflectors on the gate but we judged it right most of the time and only missed the turning on one occasion!

    !! No better description than this for the Lodge, location, furnishings and fittings, the garden and its wildlife. The Owners, Lynne and Simon 'go the extra mile' in making their guests feel comfortable. Arrivederci.

The property

Nethy Bridge 2.5 miles.

Culreach Lodge is an inviting detached cottage in Grantown-on-Spey near Nethy Bridge, settled next to the River Spey.

Sleeping up to six guests, over a single-storey and with immaculate views of the surrounding woodland and countryside, Culreach Lodge is a charming base within the Cairngorms National Park and is ideal for discovering the magnificent Scottish Highlands.

You are greeted to the property with a long gravel driveway which offers private parking for three cars, and a garage which is available to store bikes, before you take a couple steps up to the property and enter the utility room, which is perfect for your pets to sleep and also has a handy washing machine and tumble dryer, keeping everyone fresh.

Moving into the well-thought out and open-plan living space, there is a well-equipped kitchen area so guests can rustle up an evening meal to enjoy round the dining table as they toast to a wonderful trip, or make a quick breakfast and enjoy at the breakfast bar before a long day ahead.

There is a sitting area, with a gorgeous woodburning stove and plenty of sofa space, so choose your spot, grab some popcorn and flick on the Smart TV, where you can enjoy your favourite Netflix shows as you rest after a long day in the countryside.

When the evening draws to a close, head down the corridor where there are two stylish super-king-size bedrooms, which can be changed to a twin set up to offer flexible sleeping arrangements, both offer plenty of storage and a quirky dressing table hidden behind one of the mirrored wardrobe doors.

There is also a bathroom where guests can relax in the bath, and maybe even add some bubbles, or take a quick shower before heading out for the day.

To finish the property there is another flexible bedroom which is super-king-size and can be made into a twin on request, offering scenic views out to the woodland where you may be lucky enough to spot red squirrel, as well as an en-suite shower room so you can get ready in peace and style!

The patio doors from the living space lead out to the garden, where there is an ample lawn for your children or furry friends to play, plus a picnic table for a spot of alfresco dining or a bottle of wine under the stars.

A garden gate then leads you onto forest walks.

A short drive leads you into the centre of Nethy Bridge, which is a popular Highland village offering the beautiful Abernethy National Nature Reserve, a golf course and tennis courts, as well as local shops, pubs, restaurants, a Post Office and a butcher's.

In the opposite direction, you can head into Grantown-on-Spey to visit the local museum or the interesting Grantown East, a pizza restaurant based inside an old railway carriage, offering mouth watering sweet pizzas too!

Across the River Spey, the town of Aviemore has lots to discover, such as the historic ceremonial Ring Cairn and Stone Circle, the Strathspey Steam Railway, which offers afternoon tea and rides between Aviemore and Broomhill, Rothiemurchus Estate with it's 13th century island castle and wildlife, and don't forget to visit the TreeZone Outdoor Adventure Centre, which makes for a great day out.
