Muckrach Country House Hotel

Muckrach Lodge is a 16 bedroom luxury hotel is situated in Cairngorm National Park in the Scottish Highlands. The Cowap family have restored this beautiful Victorian shooting lodge to its previous glory, from a bare-bones building to a luxurious and vibrant Scottish Highland hotel which now features its own coffee shop and restaurant. It presents a delightful location for your Scottish Highland holiday.



The hotel is surrounded by 10 acres of spectacular pastureland and a Scottish castle; an ideal choice of Scottish Highlands accommodation for short breaks and weekend breaks in Scotland.  There is often a Scottish Piper, who pipes guests to dinner, pipes the haggis and is a source of rousing Scottish atmosphere. The lodge is recognised as a fun filled hub for shooting, skiing and fishing within the Scottish Highlands. The local residents speak excitedly of this hotel’s restoration; now you can experience the magic of Muckrach for yourself.

5 dog friendly garden rooms and access with your well behaved dog to the Library in the main hotel only. A 3-bedroom self catering cottage is also available, adjacent to the hotel.


In the heart of the Cairngorm National Park, Dorback is an excellent base from which to explore the area including the Malt Whisky Trail, Rothiemurchus Estate, Loch Garten & the Ospreys, the Highland Wildlife Park, Culloden Moor, Balmoral Castle and much much more.  In Nethy itself, there is an excellent butcher and well-stocked local shop whilst you will find a supermarket in the lovely Grantown-on-Spey.  With walking and cycling on your doorstep, it is the perfect holiday destination.
