Where I stayed
The Old School, Carrbridge PH23 3NA
Your generosity and hospitality were second to none. A push up the drive in 2 feet of snow, a stunning Christmas tree, free range eggs from the chickens, whiskey and Scottish shortbread were all there to welcome us. Due to the amount of snow Kate even went to the extent of driving us into Aviemore for supplies and invited us to a New Year party with her family made complete with her nephew who played the bag pipes! The best Hogmanay we've ever had.
The old school is in a great location for many attractions and 20 minutes from the Cairngorm mountains, where we tried skiing for the first time.
We stayed in Mrs.Clarks class room which is luxurious, tastefully decorated, spacious and warm, even in freezing temperatures. The kids loved the dogs, cats and chickens and had plenty of space to run freely and sledge down the hill without the worry of traffic. This is a peaceful home from home retreat to recharge your batteries and we hope to come back soon.
Thank you once again.
