A trip to Muckrach

We are lucky enough to welcome a visiting blog from one of our customers who spent a weekend with us at Muckrach with 5 of her friends.

‘6 women with a love for gin and prosecco are some of the common denominators that bring us together. Friends from Cheshire we were looking for a long weekend to an easy reach destination.

This luxury Scottish Highland accommodation does not disappoint even on first appearances. The hotel has 16 luxury bedrooms and is situated in the Cairngorms National Park. It has been restored from a beautiful Victorian shooting lodge into the luxurious Scottish Highland hotel. As well as a hotel there is a restaurant, offering food all day, which is open to non-residents too. The views were incredible with a castle in the distance.

We were shown to our room, a new self-catering lodge in the grounds, The Dulnain. We enjoyed a fabulous dinner and went to bed ready for a weekend full of activity.

We had pre-booked activities at Rothiemurchus for Saturday; shooting clays and quad trekking. We ventured to the quad trekking across the Rothiemurcus estate with beautiful scenery. We had so much fun.

We went back to Muckrach for afternoon tea and homemade birthday cake for our birthday girl. After a couple of hours relaxation time, we then embraced Saturday night as if we were in our twenties again. We laughed so much and celebrated our friend’s birthday. Mark, the very attentive General Manager organised dinner to be delivered to The Dulnain too, a perfect touch.

Sunday started with a 6k brisk walk around Loch an Eilean, another picturesque part of the Rothiemurcus estate. We got back and enjoyed a delicious Sunday roast. By the time our taxi arrived for our flight back to Manchester we didn’t want to leave. We had a wonderful time and can only thank all the staff and team at Muckrach who made our visit incredibly special! We cannot wait to return for another visit soon!’
