Muckrach Country House hotel opened its doors in April 2015, having been fully renovated over 15 months by a family who strive for the best quality and friendly approach to their business.

Highland luxury can be found throughout the hotel, from the floors up to the ceilings, all designed with your comfort in mind. Since January 2014 the Cowap family have stripped Muckrach back and started again, installing insulation, underfloor heating, new windows and re-structuring the internal walls to maximise your warmth and comfort. The 16 bedrooms (with dog friendly rooms available) have Hypnos beds, luxury furniture, fabric wallpapers and Axminster carpets complimented by fully tiled ensuite bathrooms with chrome fixtures and fittings. There is also a newly refurbished 3-bedroom lodge, The Dulnain which is situated adjacent to the hotel. The Dulnain sleeps up to 6 guests in 3 bedrooms. Cosy up by the fire in this luxurious accommodation in front of a roaring log burning stove. Enjoy views of the Muckrach Castle from the lounge area or your private garden outside. The Dulnain is Dog friendly and can come complete with a dog bed and bowl if required. This lodge has a private hot tub hot tub which is situated on the patio area outside of the cottage. This hot tub is for exclusive use for those who have rented the Dulnain lodge.

In the public rooms the chairs & sofas are rich in colour and comfortable, the curtains reflect the tradition of Victorian grandeur with their colour and material. Ceilings are adorned with handmade ceiling roses and chandeliers reflecting the opulence and wealth of a Victorian shooting lodge of a Scottish shooting estate, but don’t let that intimidate you, as the Highland welcome you will receive will reflect the pleasure of your arrival and not whether you are a tweed-wearing clan member.

Muckrach is a 4 star luxury hotel with a refreshingly friendly approach. Near to Aviemore and Grantown on Spey in the heart of the UK’s largest National Park; the Cairngorms National Park, Muckrach Country House Hotel benefits from being close to so many different activities in this beautiful part of the Scottish Highlands.
