About Us

A family run hotel with delightful locally sourced food run by the Cassidy family and their small friendly team. The Cassidy family moved to Aviemore to enjoy the local scenery, nature and great outdoors and are on hand to give local tips and impart their favourite walks, historical sites and local information. The Cassidys are keen outdoor enthusiasts and enjoy skiing, mountain biking, hiking, nature and all the amazing natural local offerings that the Cairngorms National Park has to offer

Our Setting

In a delightful rural location overlooking Loch Alvie, which is only a short walk away. The hotel is a great base for exploring the surrounding area and the popular destination of Aviemore is a 3 mile drive north, in the heart of the scenically stunning Cairngorms National Park

There is no mistaking that you are in the heart of the glorious Scottish Highlands yet you could be excused for thinking that you were in your own little private country home for a while

On our doorstep lie all the attractions for which the Cairngorm Highlands of Scotland and especially, the Aviemore area, are rightly famous. Our easy to reach, central location means that you don’t spend hours at the wheel, allowing you to pack more in to your day


Just 20 minutes drive away, Cairngorm Mountain is Scotland’s premier ski area, with lift accessed riding. It’s also a great base for all winter activities. Our location also means that you can easily get over to The Lecht ski area or doen to The Nevis Range. Great options for a change of scenery   

Please note we are able to provide ski storage if required
