We are once again absolutely delighted that The Good Hotel Guide has given a Full entry to us at The Dulaig, this time in the 2020 edition!
For over 40 years The Good Hotel Guide has been a truisted, uniquely independent guide to the best hotels in Great Britain and Ireland. Its founding editor said "A good hotel is where the guest comes first" and those values still underline the Guide today. Businesses cannot pay to be in the Guide and entries are instead selected ...
We opened The Dulaig garden to the public today as part of Strathspey Opens Gardens event to raise funds for two local charities, Grantown Museum and Riding for the Disabled.
Even though we were busy all day with visitors enjoying our garden the wild ducks who love lazing on our lawn did not leave. We did have a little sign up letting visitors know about our five little ducklings and we are delighted to say the wee ones were not at all disturbed by all the excitement.
All Scots are fascinated about the weather. We are no different and here at The Dulaig we have just installed a weather station. Soon we will be able to see all sorts of facts about what the weather is doing. Surprisingly to most people, our town #Grantown-on-Spey in #Cairngorms National Park is one of the driest places in the whole of the UK. This - and the fact we are one of the coldest places - mean we also have virtually no midges as compared to other places in the Highlands!
The brilliant BBC "Winterwatch" is just about to start its 2019 series based, like The Dulaig, in the magnificent Cairngorms National Park.
More exciting still is that the Springwatch and Autumnwatch series will also be based in this area, enabling us all to follow the wildlife - including red squirrels, capercaillie, red deer, osprey etc - through the dramatic events and seasonal changes here. The programme will also showcase the incredible scenery of the area.
The Times Weekend section today has a great full-page article "Whisky Galore in the Scottish Highlands". We are delighted that The Dulaig is mentioned in the "Need to know" section about places to stay when touring the Whisky Trail!
It has been our absolute pleasure to share our home, garden, love of Scotland and of food, with guests over the past 14 years. The experience of running our B&B exceeded our wildest dreams however we - Carol, Gordon (& The Cake Fairy) - have hung up our aprons for the last time.
Thank you to the wonderful guests from all over the world who have stayed with us. You have given us so many special memories which we will always treasure. Thank you too, everyone else who has supported us: your confidence in us was appreciated more than words can say.
Warmest Wishes to All, Carol, Gordon..and The Cake Fairy x
