Fraoch Lodge


Deshar Road, Boat Of Garten, Inverness Shire, PH24 3BN

    We invite guests into our home, Fraoch Lodge, as if it is their own. This means you can relax in our sitting room, enjoy fresh, home-cooked meals at our dining table and use a range of home-from-home facilities. We also offer guided activities.

    Fraoch Lodge is run along the lines of a homestay hostel. It is ideal for walkers, mountain bikers and families planning an active vacation in the Cairngorms National Park. Sleeps: 12 Our room set up is very flexible - we can assign you a whole area for your family's/group's use or offer you your own private room. All rooms have their own hand basins and share shower/toilet facilities. There is no TV here; instead we have a largish garden which backs on to the local football pitch and the woods, where there are several waymarked routes laid out; plus games and books to borrow in the lounge
