We appreciate that a bunkhouse isn’t the accommodation of choice for everybody, but if you are doing activities with us and wishing to stay in a hotel, then we can still be a ‘one stop shop’ to also look after your accommodation requirements.

Craggan Outdoors has relationships with a range of local hotels, from 3* to 5*, and accordingly can offer a competitively priced package of hotel accommodation and activities. This is something that we find works particularly well for corporate groups that may wish to have more comfortable accommodation and meeting rooms available, whilst also undertaking activities as part of that valuable time out of the office.

Local Hotels
Ben Mhor Hotel
The Grant Arms Hotel
Tigh na Sgiath

The Speyside Hotel

Also of note & slightly further afield is The Station Hotel in Rothes, 30 minutes or so from Grantown, which is a beautiful place & well worth a look for a special occasion. Just south of Aviemore at Alvie is Rowan Tree Country Hotel, & 10 minutes further south at Kingussiue is The Cross.

Back a little closer to Craggan Outdoors, & looking now at other self-catering places, assuming that our bunkhouse accommodation is not your thing, then right across the road from the centre is the 16-bed Craggan Mill Lodge, & there is also The Pines House in Grantown, which like Craggan Mill we would recommend to groups of up to 20 people that are wanting something a bit more upmarket. Likewise Moray Lodge which sleeps up to 22 people & even offers the luxury of it’s own swimming pool. Also in Grantown & an exclusive bolthole for couples is The Snug.

Big Husky Lodge is another ‘posh lodge’, also for up to 22 people, that is just 10 minutes from us at Boat of Garten. Also at Boat is the Boathouse Guest House which sleeps up to 18 & can be booked for exclusive group use. Another similar option for groups of up to 16 people at Boat of Garten is Alba Highland Cottages. Also at Boat, & suited for groups of up to 10 people is the lovely Balvattan Farmhouse. And a wee bit smaller again, & also at Boat is Glencoldon Cottage which is for up to six.

Also for smaller groups of up to six, take a look at Bynack which is 10 minutes away in Nethy Bridge. Also in Nethy Bridge is the award-winning Lazy Duck, with their unique combination of small hostel, campground, self-catering cottage & log cabin. Or if preferring to be in Aviemore, then check out Silverglades for their range of stylish 3 & 4 star self-catering holiday homes, just 15 minutes drive from Craggan Outdoors. Also in Aviemore & sleeping seven is Tigh Na Lochan. Another 6-bed property in Aviemore is Jamieson House
