Guestbook reviews

Beautiful setting, fantastic house.

Spey Lodge - Secluded Home in the Cairngorms

We went with a group of four people to have a weekend in the highlands. The house is really good, with many things that create a great space of holidays: projector to watch movies, everything to cook, good bedrooms, great sound system, beautiful outside spaces and it is possible to walk to many spaces from the house. Everything was clean and safe.
