My wife and I wanted to visit the Cairngorms and Aviemore Area. We picked the hotel from TripAdvisor and booked two weeks before our stay. There were standard, superior and Four poster rooms available. The hotel has a rich Royal history.

I love the Cairngorms and Moray Firth (wider Black Isle) with a passionate obsession with wildlife. The Grant Arms has positioned itself within this area of interest with great success. While the hotel doesn't cater only obsessives such as me, it does hold excellent resources and links guests for information (sighting) sharing and guiding and watching arrangements with other local...

I came here for the first time for 4 nights in December 2016 for a wildlife birding experience. It was the perfect place to stay with a tremendous ambience and outstanding meals. After a full day out in the countryside, a relaxing G&T and the warmth of the reception rooms to relax in were just the answer. Also the available...

We had a lovely break, wonderful food, guided birding some of the time, lots of good advice and friendly interest. We were also blessed with lovely weather, specially for our visit to the not-to-be-missed Findhorn Valley.

From the gentle bird song as you walk in to the friendly receptionists; everything about this hotel is relaxed and welcoming. I checked in myself and 5 guests for a week stay in December 2016. With snow on the ground, the hotel was warm and comfortable. Unlike many hotels, there is plenty of public seating and for guests, coffee and...
