We were surprised that this resort was part of a chain.....it has all the charm and qualities of a family run business.
The staff were lovely, the lodge was spotless, the beds were just the most comfy I have ever slept in and the kitchen (described as a "mini-kitchen) was better than the resort we stayed in the previous week in Aviemore (owned by the same group) who advertise a full kitchen.
The setting could not be more beautiful. The lodges surround a small Loch with woods behind that can be explored with walks that extend up hill and down dale with stunning views. Carrbridge is only a small village (with a brilliant Pub) but is just 7 miles from Aviemore and we found heaps to do even off season. (our favorites were the Colluden Battlefield exhibition, The Caingorm Brewery tour, the Dalwhinney Distillery, the Cairngorm Wildlife Park and the funicular railway up the Cairngorm Mountain and walk to the summit).
Having spent the previous week in the area, there were a couple of days we preferred to spend "at home" just chilling, feeding the ducks and red squirrels outside the conservatory. The resort were more than happy to lend us DVDs (with a small deposit refundable on return) and board games. The pool, though small was very warm and luxurious.
Our holiday in Lochanhully exceeded expectations and we very much hope to return next year.
