We had a perfect few days here in sheer luxury. Well equipped and perfectly comfortable and in a terrific location for exploring Cairngorm Nation Park. Really, everything you could wish for. This place was recommended by a friend and we are so glad we got the chance to stay.

We stayed in the Staffroom with our 2 teenager for a week in August ... and what a week it was! It was our 10th holiday in Scotland and the last time we had such a good weather (sun and 23-25° C) was on our very first Scottish holiday in 1999. We also had a huuuuge problem with the very... More

This is beautifully equipped self catering in a scenic location. Extremely comfortable. The hot tub in the woods is marvellous! The host couldn't have been kinder and was able to accommodate us at very short notice. Nothing was too much trouble. Easy access to all of the sports that Aviemore is known for. I can't recommend this place highly enough.... More

My wife booked us a week in Miss McIntosh's classroom and I'm now delighted that she did this. The quality of the accommodation is first class from the furniture to the appliances. The finishings such as tiles and joinery are superb. A lovely quiet location and very close to Carrbridge. The hot tub is excellent and it looks like we... More

We stayed in Miss MacIntosh's classroom for one week, we found the accommodation spacious, comfortable and it had everything we needed for a brilliant stay. The hot tub was fabulous, a real treat in a wonderful location. Kate was lovely and more than helpful. The location of The Old School was perfect for us as a young(ish!) family with lots... More

The Old School is just outside of Carrbridge. We stayed for 3 nights and very much enjoyed it. It has been renovated to a very high standard inside and contains nearly everything you would need. Kate, the owner, was very welcoming and made coming and going very easy for us. The kitchen is well-equipped and the bedrooms are nicely furnished.... More

My partner and I stayed at the old school for a long weekend at the beginning of February. The accommodation is luxurious and very well equipped. Our hosts Kate and David were very welcoming and accommodated our arrival and departure times to suit our travel arrangements. The highlight of the old school has to be the hot tub and sauna...
