Welcome to Muckrach Country House
Our luxurious country house is available only as a privately hired accommodation. It is surrounded by acres of picturesque pastureland offering luxury accommodation for that special family holiday, a catch up with friends or a special event. The House lies just besides the quaint village of Dulnain Bridge with close links to popular Grantown-on-Spey and Aviemore within the Cairngorms National Park.
Muckrach is surrounded by some of Scotland’s best scenery which lends itself to some of the best outdoor excursions. From hiking around or skiing down the Cairngorm mountains, swimming at the UK’s highest beach at Loch Morlich, having adventure days at Rothiemurchus, fishing for Salmon in the Spey River, teeing off surrounded by natural beauty, seeing the fairy magic of An Lochan Uaine or the mystery of Loch Ness; you can choose to do it all… or nothing at all.
Our lovingly restored Victorian Shooting Lodge features eleven uniquely designed en-suite bedrooms, piano bar, luxury kitchen, library, snug, outdoor terrace, and a hot tub for that special family holiday, catch up with friends or special event.
Our house offers the utmost in luxury and the perfect balance of space for both entertaining and relaxing.
The large bright conservatory gives you a space to all dine together as a group, or to simply enjoy your morning coffee looking out to the grounds and beyond in the plush furnishings around. Our fully fitted kitchen has everything you need to rustle up a tasty meal, or you can arrange your own private chef to allow you to fully relax and enjoy your time with your fellow guests. The large gallery windows in the drawing room offer uninterrupted views across the grounds to the Cromdale mountain range. In the piano bar you will find a mirror tv and integrated music system letting you set the right mood. Quiet moments can be found in the snug and the library, the latter being furnished sumptuously in rich reds and blues and is complete with cosy log burner.
Our eleven bedrooms offer the ultimate in luxury and comfort. Each room has been uniquely designed in a contemporary Scottish style and furnished with the finest fittings. The en-suite bathrooms are finished with Porcelanosa tiles, rainfall showers and white fluffy towels.
Set in acres of pastureland, the expansive terrace overlooks stunning Scottish scenery and views of our resident highland coos! A beautiful place to enjoy an early evening tipple, al fresco dining, or even star gazing on a clear night.
Outside too you’ll find the hot tub, constantly maintained to the optimum temperature for an indulgent and relaxing dip after the day’s activities.
