Culdearn House Hotel

Culdearn House is a lovely Victorian villa built in 1860, privately owned and is situated in the heart of Speyside. It has retained many original features including marble fireplaces, cornice ceilings and barley twist panelling and has six luxury bedrooms, each individually and elegantly designed. Very much home from home. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the centre of Grantown-on-Spey, sat back from the road within 3/4 acre of grounds on the edge of woodland.
