Accommodation description

The Glebe is an 18th century, stone-built, detached property that has been an important part of the historical parish of Duthil, near to the village of Carrbridge. Not only was it an ecclesiastical building, but before it became part of the church, it was a girls’ school. It is a very attractive building that when first spotted from the road on your approach, you really hope it’s where you’re stopping. Situated only 2 miles from Carrbridge, and set just off a quiet road, The Glebe has a lovely position with a large enclosed garden and private pine forest with resident red squirrels, deer and an amazing array of birdlife throughout the year.

It truly is an excellent place to relax and spend your day in tranquillity. On entering the property from the driveway, where there’s space for up to 4 cars, the hallway leads off in multiple directions, but straight across is a spacious boot and coat room, ideal for after a long day exploring on foot. The dining area is a large double-aspect room with views out onto your own woodland. The large farmhouse-style kitchen is conveniently linked with an open doorway. Also on the ground floor there are 2 bedrooms and a separate toilet. The master bedroom is huge with an historic stone fireplace across an entire wall. The second bedroom is also a great size and has twin beds and an en-suite shower room.

Up to the first floor and you will find a large, impressive living room, again with a huge fireplace spread across an entire wall. This fabulous room is great for everyone to gather and enjoy spending time together. There are 3 further bedrooms, one a twin with large en-suite bathroom, double bedroom with en-suite bathroom (can also be accessed from hallway), and a comfortable single bedroom.

There is much to see and do in the surrounding area. Carrbridge, with the oldest stone bridge in the Highlands, has a pub, two excellent cafés, a restaurant and an ancient pine forest that hosts an adventure park and a series of walking trails, offering a good chance of spotting the elusive capercallie. Beyond Carrbridge, Aviemore offers the gateway to the ski slopes in the winter and is an all-year destination for adventure travel with mountain biking and watersports readily available. Boat of Garten with the Abernethy Forest, where Springwatch and Winterwatch have been known to film, and Loch Garten are a birdwatcher’s paradise, with a good chance to see Osprey in the summer. Grantown-on-Spey is also nearby and the gateway to some of the best whisky distilleries in the world.

Aviemore, Boat of Garten and Grantown-on-Spey are all linked by the River Spey, offering some of the best salmon and trout fishing in Europe. However, if you want to simply enjoy the river, the Speyside Way hiking trail is a good option linking the towns. If walking isn’t your thing, there is the Strathspey Steam Railway giving an alternative, more historical view. The Glebe has been lovingly restored and finished to ensure visitors have a memorable Scottish Highlands holiday. A week isn’t enough time to enjoy The Glebe and its surroundings. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

    We had a lovely stay. House very clean and beds really comfortable. Kitchen has everything you would need. Only negative is that the garden was not fully enclosed for the dog or toddler. There was escape routes. Overall we loved the house and wild garden.
