Yet another fantastic stay with our daughter, son-inlaw and 8 month old grandson which was their first visit. We love the laid back pace that Lochanhully deliver year after year and this visit was no different. We had a few issues with the cleanliness of the lodge but it was sorted out by the staff after we brought it to...

Husband stayed last week with his parents and was absoultely delighted to see the much needed upgrades that have taken place. The new 'Jakes' resturant was fantastic, they had a high tea which they raved about for days and a gorgeous woodburner in the quieter lounge area. The lodge they were in had a new sofa and new tv. Now...

Excellent lodges, friendly staff, lovely setting, peaceful.

Just back from Lochanhully; very chilled break. The lodge was very clean and well equipped. We felt that a TV in the bedroom would be an added bonus. Jakes bar/restaurant is privately owned and owners/staff were very attentive and friendly. The food was very good and reasonably priced.

My 8 year old grandson, myself and the dog stayed at Lochanhully for a half-term break. It was fabulous. The staff were helpful, the lodge was lovely, and the pool just right. Aviemore is only a short drive away and Carrbridge has all the essentials (food, fuel, and a nice cafe) Would definitely recommend.

What a brilliant little woodland getaway. The lodges, although basic, have everything you really need. Clearly decorated recently too. Staying here is like a home away from home. Great views looking out into nature, and a nice lake with hungry ducks! The staff here were really helpful (Personal thanks to the reception, pool and the maintenance staff, who couldn't have...

The plusses of Lochanhully are firstly the staff under Ruth the manager, the location just outside Carrbridge, the compact but easy to heat chalets and the nice wee swimming pool. However, having been there twice before we feel that it is suffering under the dead hand of Macdonalds who don't seem to be looking after it as well as it...

Words cannot describe how amazing this place is. Not just where you stay but also the surrounding area. Our lodge was clean and comfortable and had all the amenities you would need. We dined at Jakes Bar one night and the food was great. Faultless and good sized portions rivalling what you'd get at a good country pub. Highly recommended!
