We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us,we enjoyed very much having you here. Our evenings talking about your family tree were great and to think so many came from this area. Neil also enjoyed his round of golf with Malcolm.

We stayed a couple of days in Docharn Lodge Guest House and enjoyed every minute of it. The place is luxurious, comfortable and cosy. Catrina and Neil are so nice people. Great breakfast. Excellent value for money. Mylène and Jean Louis

My husband and I stayed at Docharn for 5 days recently. Any traveller to the Highlands must experience this absolutely beautiful house and amazing owners - Catriona & Neil. The genuinely warm welcome, attention to detail and peaceful environment along with the stunning views from your breakfast table is what Docharn is all about. The rooms are not only beautiful but have every possible technology. Add to this a breakfast which is just a culinary delight and we were in Highland Heaven! This place has everything. We can't wait to revisit. If you are travelling to the Highlands, don't even consider anywhere else. Fran & Liam from Ireland.

Room Tip: Just ask Catriona & Neil & they will look after you.

Couldn't be better. The room was really modern with beautiful furnishing, comparable to a 5 star hotel. The location is 5 minutes from Aviemore by car with a really nice view of the Cairngorms. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of choices and really fresh ingredients. Absolutely fantastic job by the couple who run it, not a single thing I could suggest to improve it.

WOW!!!!!....What a find!!...Stayed here last weekend for 2 nights with my hubby and 10 yr old daughter!!!!...was a last minute thing to catch a bit of skiing sunshine!!!....the pics and previous reviews were what swayed us to stay here, and boy we were not disappointed!!!...we arrived about 5.45pm after being on the slopes all afternoon, to a very warm welcome from our hosts Neil & Catriona...
The location of the lodge is something special!!, with stunning views towards the Cairngorms!!...(probably made even more spectacular with the beautiful weather we had!)
We were shown to our room which was absolutely perfect for 2 adults and child!! biggest bed i have ever seen in a B&B...very contemporary design and soft furnishings simple with a touch of luxury...which then extended into the en-suite with the added bonus of high end luxury toiletries!!...i was in heaven!
It didnt finish there!...as if tea/coffee/hot chocolate/ shortbread wasnt enough!! they also provided 2 small bottles of wine for mummy & daddy, and small bottle of juice for our daughter (with chocs)
there was also the added luxury of 3 fluffy white bathroom robes for our use!!!.... Our wee one felt sooo special!! ( yes! there was one to fit our 10 yr old perfectly !! )
Breakfast was to die for!!!... best quality Fresh fruit salad/locally produced meat, eggs etc for Full Scottish!!/quality brand cereals/ wide variety of tes& coffees, homemade bread, croissants...the list goes on!!...PERFECT!!!
Thank you Catriona & Neil!!!.....we had a fabulous weekend staying at your lodge! We will certainly be back...p.s...The homemade scones on arrival clinched it for me!!!

just back from an overnight stay here, absolutley fantastic, close to aviemore etc but also just far enough away for the peace n quiet we were looking for, views amazing, catrina was a great host and couldnt have done any more for us, breakfast was exceptional, and didnt feel rushed at all, will definitely recommend to friends and we will be back for a longer stay without a doubt :)

Thanks for this. Although (this time) your visit was short, I thoroughly enjoyed having you stay and hope its not too long before you return. I'm sure your dogs missed you and were pleased to see you when you returned home.

My partner and I booked this B&B for while we were on a few days climbing in the Cairngorms. It might further away than other accommodation around the Aviemore and ski centre but this did not detract from a beautiful building and location. The room was large and clean and modern, as was the bathroom. The breakfast was generous and delicious with homemade bread and jams and locally sourced items. For me the real gem here is Catriona and Neil. They were wonderful hosts who put in a lot of effort to make you feel at home and go the extra mile to make your stay as comfortable and as relaxing as it can be. And after day out on the cold, snowy mountains it was hard to beat the roaring, cozy log fire. When I am in that area again I will definitely return.
