We stayed for 2 nights to attend a family wedding, everything was brilliant, great location, views and our hosts Neil and Catriona were so friendly and helpful which all contributed to our most enjoyable break. Rooms were well presented with excellent facilities and our breakfasts offered a good choice and were delicious.

We have stayed at Docharn many times now and Neil and Catriona's hospitality and welcome never disappoints. The accommodation is supremely comfortable, the breakfast menu excellent and the views from the house stunning - one of our favourite views in the World! We will continue to go back again and again.

Docharn Lodge would be worthy of a "Grand Design" title, forever expecting Kevin McCloud to pop his head around the corner, Catriona & Neil have done this building proud, it would be an insult to refer to this property as a B&B, Catriona & Neil were the perfect hosts, both friendly & knowledgeable. The breakfast was perfectly done & sets...

Recently stayed at Docharn lodge with a group of friends. From the moment we arrived Catriona and Neil made us feel so welcome and everything was perfect. The rooms were spotless, the beds comfortable and the breakfast in the morning was first class. The surroundings were breathtaking. Could not ask for anything more and we will definitely be back!

I spent several days at Neil and Catriona's lovely home this past September 2016. The pastoral setting is peaceful and comforting. The home (and room) were nicely furnished and the breakfasts were excellent. But further, the hosts were genial and very welcoming. I was there because of its proximity to two golf courses I wanted to play: Kingussie and Boat...

This was our second stay at Docharn Lodge, and as usual, it was perfect! Both Catriona and Neil are extremely accommodating and welcoming, and have great knowledge of the local area. The B&B is beautifully decorated and located on the edge of the village, with stunning views of the ski slopes. Would highly recommend this place, and we would certainly...

“Room 1 is our favourite partly because it has its own 'front door' which means we can leave the house quietly for early morning bird watching trips but honestly all three rooms are excellent. ”
