April Blog a Lodge - Wolf Lodge

Hi All,
Well what can you say about the weather, FANTASTIC.

This month we are looking at Wolf Lodge situated on the edge of the 18th century village of Carrbridge inside the North West gateway to the Cairngorm National Park.

Wolf Lodge is a unique Scandinavian A frame Lodge with a Hot tub, Sauna, Log Stove, Wifi and Full sky package, this is by far and away one of our most popular smaller properties most suited for couples and small families it can sleep up to 6 but we really only advise for 4, but if you have friends visiting for the night it has the double wall bed for occasional use.

Carrbridge is only 7 miles from Aviemore but can feel a world away from the faster pace at Aviemore, In Carrbridge we have the Carrbridge Hotel and the Cairn Hotel with a fantastic pub atmosphere you are made to feel very much part of the local crowd with wonderful pub fire and real ales.

Carrbridge has its own 9 hole golf course which is the perfect place for a quick round in the morning to shake off the real ales and local whisky. Or for those more intent on playing there way round the Highlands off to one of the dozens of other courses in the local area.

Carrbridge is a hub for Birdwatching, Cycling, Fishing and Walking.
For cyclists the The Sustrans Inverness - Perth cycle route #7 comes right through Carrbridge, passing right by The Slochd on its way. This is part of the national cycle network for those interested in more adventurous, multi-day excursions.
For those that love fishing the River Spey and Findhorn are only a few miles away and the River Dulnain flows through the village, Carrbridge offers convenient access with some of the best Salmon Fishing in the country.
For walkers in the village itself there are forest and riverside walks.
with Ellan Woods and Dulnain River walks on hand for that perfect day out and off course for those for serious walkers the Cairngorm Mountains are close by for those that love a challenge.

Carrbridge has also a Village coffee shop and local crafts shop that sells fantastic home baking, it is only 26 miles from Inverness and 31 from Inverness Airport.

For families in Carrbridge don't miss Landmark Visitor Centre this is a day out to remember.

Close by to the Villages of Boat of Garten, Dulnain Bridge and further on to Aviemore and Grantown on Spey this wonderful Lodge is perfectly situated for all the best of the Cairngorm National Park and no day would be complete without returning to the Lodge to sit in and soak the world away in its own Hot Tub with a wee glass of bubbly
