    “Great place - we will definitely be back”

    We rented the Suidhe on the recommendation of a group of friends who have been here many times. They were absolutely right! There were eleven of us, using all 6 bedrooms. The down sides? Yes fire doors are heavy. Rather that than the alternatives. Some of the decor is tired. Or to put it another way, the house has been very well cared for and the decor is in keeping with the character of the place. It's not the place for white walls and shiny glass surfaces. Cleanliness. When we stayed the house was clean and tidy with fresh linens and a wholesome feeling. Crockery and cutlery were fine and plentiful. The hot tub. Our party used the hot tub and didn't have any issues with other people. We knew, from the descriptions, exactly what we were going to get in terms of other accommodation on the site. The Best Bits............ The furniture was in keeping and very comfortable (except for one chaise long in the lounge). Some of the pieces are quite beautiful, as were the artworks around the house. My bed, the four poster, was brilliant. None of our party had a sleepless night. The log fire in the lounge was fantastic with all of the fuel included in the rental. The kitchen is adequate for a large party but the dishwasher fills up quickly. The amount, range and quality of the crockery, cutlery and utensils were all excellent. The bar at the back of the house is a great addition. The cask beer is local and kept very well. The bar is well stocked enough to keep locals and visitors happy and satisfied. On Thursday evenings, an informal group of musicians turn up and play for their own amusement and are smashing entertainment. The location of the Suidhe is it's major advantage and one of the reasons we will go back. Loch Insh is a mile away and easy on foot with good stretches of footpath. The Watersports Centre, apart from offering watersports and dry-slope skiing, is a great place to eat lunch or dinner. There is some good, non taxing walking to be had around here. Loch An Eilien is a delight with a made-up path all the way around. There is a car park close by and the area around Rothiemurchus deserves exploration. Up the road from there is Glenmore Forrest Park on Loch Morlich. There is so much to do around there that you will never be short of entertainment. Our party to the walk up to Lochan Uaine (Green Loch). That was a smashing walk and I recommend it for anyone, including wheelchairs. At about an hour each way, it's worth planning your visit there. This has only scratched the surface of the location around The Suidhe. The scenery outside the window and across the main road is spectacular and FREE. We have stayed in places in Yorkshire, Wales, Cornwall and elsewhere. The stay at The Suidhe was one of the very best and we will certainly make a point of going back.
