Auchendean Lodge B&B and Self Catering

Auchendean is currently undergoing an overhaul and changes
When completed, the online booking system will be replaced.

Auchendean Lodge is in the Cairngorms National Park

Auchendean on the hill behind the Strathspey Railway

The Cairngorms National Park is the largest in Britain encompassing a very special part of the Highlands of Scotland.


We have a sensational setting looking over huge unobscured views of Strathspey stretching from the River Spey in the fields below us up to the Cromdale Hills, Abernethy Forest and Cairngorm Mountains.
See our Views page!

The large garden surrounding Auchendean is stocked with many interesting plants and is available for guests to sit and enjoy the views or to play Pitch and Putt on our 9 hole, par 3 course which winds its way around the garden

Bed and Breakfast

All rooms are en-suite and all share our fantastic views
Two rooms have queen double beds, one of those has an additional single bed.
The third room has an Art Nouveau double bedroom suite

Self Catering Flat 

Auchendean’s views of Strathspey & the Cairngorms

This is on the first floor (up one flight of stairs) of a separate building very close to Auchendean. It has a standard double bed, kitchen, sitting and dining room and a large bathroom with a walk-in shower and a large Art Deco bath

It has wonderful views of the garden, Curr Wood and across Strathspey to the Abernethy Forest and Cairngorm Mountains


There are many different types of restaurants in towns and villages around, varying from fine dining and bistros to cafes serving afternoon teas and wonderful coffee & cakes. See our restaurants page.
We recommend that you book dinner ahead as they get very busy.


Our pet lambs and border collie, Bess

If you would like to bring your dog to Auchendean either in the BnB or Self Catering Flat then they will be most welcome

There’s good walking in Curr Wood at the back of Auchendean and in most forests around although ground-nesting birds and other farm animals and wildlife need protection

We do make a small charge if dogs come into the rooms and ask that you clear up after them if in the garden. We also ask that they are kept off all furniture at all times and never left in a room on their own.

Open dates

We are open from the start of April until the end of September.
