Following a change of ownership in Spring 2013 a considerable refurbishment programme is being undertaken and has already seen the 1850s Hunters Lodge completely refurbished with 2 new en-suite bedrooms and self-catering accommodation.
Breakfast is included in the price and is freshly booked to order, with options such as Cinnamon Toast, Scrambled Eggs & Smoked Salmon and of course a full cooked breakfast with Haggis!
Having taken over in March 2013, a substantial renovation project is ongoing which has seen our Drawing Room and Bar/Bistro refurbished and completion of two new bedrooms with new en-suite bathrooms. In March 2015 a biomass boiler system was installed and another two new bathrooms were completed. Investment in the Hotel is continuing and refurbishment of four more bathrooms was completed in early February 2016.
Our self-catering cottage, Cairngorm View, has also been refurbished and is now available for holiday rental.
The Hotel is situated in the historical village of Carrbridge described by Queen Victoria as "the jewel of the North". There is, in the museum, at Fochabers, a dog cart used by King George V during his stay at Dalrachney Lodge. The property retains its original pitched pine woodwork and high corniced ceilings. The new furnishings are in keeping with the character of the Lodge. In the cooler months log fires in the delightful Lounge and cosy Bar-Bistro provide a warm welcome.
Situated within the Cairngorm National Park in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, Dalrachney is an ideal base for a memorable break.
