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.
Also of note & slightly further afield is Craigerne House Hotel in Newtonmore, 30 minutes from Grantown. We list this as they’re nice people that offer a friendly hotel, but that are also happy to let the whole hotel to groups for self-catering. And for any groups that are interested in yoga, one of the owners is a yoga teacher so this can be arranged on-site. In a similar vein, The Boathouse Guest House at Boat of Garten sleeps up to 18 & can be booked for exclusive group use.
Another self-catering option a little closer to Craggan Outdoors is The Pines House in Grantown, which we would recommend to groups of up to 20 people that are wanting something a bit more upmarket than our own Bunkhouse & Bothy. Big Husky Lodge is a similar luxury option for up to 22 people that is just 10 minutes from us at Boat of Garten. 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 are Heath Cottage which sleeps six, & Loch Avon Lodge which sleeps up to five people.
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.
