We knew when we saw this property with it’s wonderful views to the Cromdale Hills that it was something special. It had all the necessary features in place for us to create a bright and spacious bed & breakfast with a contemporary Scottish feel. We truly welcome all of our guests into our beloved home.

Grantown on Spey is a convenient location for many due to the variety of wonderful things on offer in this area. Experiences range from golfing, distillery tours, castles visits, fishing, river and loch walks, a multitude of outdoor pursuits and of course, the majestic Cairngorms.

We are conveniently situated about three minutes from the town’s museum and local tourist information office, which are both just located off the High Street.

Hailing from the Highlands, we bring a bit of our history to the property. We have chosen to name our rooms after Scottish Clans that have a personal meaning to us, through birth, marriage and our home.

Upon historical research of the property, we found an old advertisement for the hotel during Mrs. Stirling’s ownership. Over five decades later, we still have the same ethos about ensuring excellent customer service for our guests.

Under personal supervision and every effort is directed towards your holiday happiness.

We would love to welcome you to The Spey – Bed & Breakfast whether it be for work or pleasure. We wish you a pleasant stay and an enjoyable time in this idyllic area of outstanding natural beauty.

Kind Regards,

Neil & Anne MacDonald

    Modernisation

    A lot of modernisation had previously been done to the property from 2001. This continued with a mixture of refurbishment and updating along with a new fire system and car parking. They retained as many of the original features as possible. The doors into the rooms are still original (with a change to comply with current fire regulations) and the keys for the Dunvegan Hotel are still in use, although now Clan named.
