About the Owner

Claire & Douglas Mackenzie are both from Scotland. Central & North Perthshire and The Isle of Skye.

Douglas' ideal posting would be manning a Light House on West Coast. Lochinver and Summer Isles are a must see. Sutherland up to Cape Wrath! For Claire's ideal posting/location would be from the sea enjoying the Isles of the West Coast and Out Hebrides. However travelling the world would be nice. Tulach Ard House in the Cairngorms, Moray is their chosen home.

We enjoy life near & on the Spey River, Moray Coast. Whisky Tasting trips and historical Scotland on our doorstep. Grantown on Spey is a 'Gateway' to so much we love living here.

Review on Booking System

20th July 2014, guest from Flagstaff:

"I was certainly not disappointed to stay there again. Everything was wonderful. Claire and Doug are incredible hosts with so much knowledge about the area and the Highlands. I felt as though I had hired personal guides. Meals were super too. I can't wait to return."


"Take time to visit the little out of the way villages and sights. There is so much to see in the Highlands, especially along the coast. Great fresh fish and chips too. And visit Orkney; so much history."

Would Recommend: Yes

Comments:This was truly an awesome B&B and it would get 5 if it were not for the fact that we did NOT get the room we booked in april on arrival to the location. Breakfast was the best i have ever had in the U.K so far and the welcoming was truly great, this was an great experience and i recmoned all to stay more than one night here to enjoy both the B&B and the area more!

Comments:We decided to take a few days away to relax after our wedding and found ourselves in Grantown on Spey. We fell upon this fabulous B&B by chance. Suffice to say the welcome was warm, the accommodation spotless and the breakfast memorable. We are already planning a return there for a longer stay. Thanks Claire and Douglas... You are special people and your B&B is outstanding!

A great cottage in a fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cottage set in a great location. perfect access to the woods in Grantown, and easy to get into town too for the pub/shop.

The owners were lovely, and looked after our needs. the rooms were all well appointed, and everything worked really well. The wood pellet stove was super toasty.

special mention must go to the fact that the kitchen knives were sharp, makes such a difference, as most self catering places have kitchen knives that couldn't cut soft butter.

thanks for a great stay.

From the Owner

Grantown on Spey is a quiet thriving traditional highland town in Strathspey & Badenoch a region in the Scottish Highlands. We chose Grantown on Spey primarily looking at what we wanted and needed as a family. Having 2 main train lines 30minutes away and Airports of Inverness and Aberdeen have also contributed to our move to Grantown in 2010.
