That warm hug after a day out and about

We know what you need is a cosy bedroom to call home after a day out exploring. The Boat Country Inn hotel near Aviemore is just that. A place to stay in the Cairngorms. A Victorian period hotel on the platform of the Strathspey Steam railway, in the Osprey village.

Warm and cosy rooms, some with views of the mountains, some with views of the garden, some with views of the village. Whichever room you choose to stay in, the room will be family friendly, dog friendly, a hotel in the Cairngorms. No matter which room you choose, we aim to make your stay a home from home experience.
