Dalrachney Lodge Hotel is family-run and offers versatile accommodation options to suit every budget whether for couples, families, individuals or small groups in an informal and friendly setting.
The main Lodge reception is approached via the riverside drive way which is lined with approximately two hundred mature Scots Pines. Situated in its own grounds beside the Dulnain river
within the Cairngorm National Park in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, Dalrachney is an ideal base for a memorable break. Enjoy breathtaking scenery, abundant wildlife, castles, museums and numerous year-round outdoor activities including walking, climbing, fishing, shooting, golfing, bird-watching, sailing, canoeing, abseiling, skiing and snowboarding.
The hotel is situated on the outskirts of the historical village of Carrbridge described by Queen Victoria as "the jewel of the North". Dalrachney dates from 1845 and was formerly a Sporting Lodge. There is, in a local museum, a guncart used by King George V during his stay at Dalrachney Lodge. Modern facilities are skilfully blended with original pitched pine woodwork and high corniced ceilings, Furnishings are in keeping with the character of the house and original paintings grace many of the rooms. In the cooler months log fires in the delightful lounge and cosy bar-bistro provide a warm welcome. The bedrooms are spacious and well-appointed and have magnificent views. We are regularly visited by deer, red squirrels, rabbits and many kinds of birds. We even have a resident stoat but he is harder to spot.
Dining at Dalrachney augments the Highland experience and we are recognised for our friendly but efficient service and good food using as far as possible fresh local produce - game, beef, salmon and trout. vegetarian options are always available and individual dietary needs can be catered for. Guests can dine in the traditional Lodge Restaurant or the more informal Stalker's Bar-Bistro.
