I had a fabulous 3 days in the Cairngorms with Andy, Rebecca and wee Gregor (as well as Andy’s mum). I travelled alone, my wife having kindly booked the trip for me. From the outset, I was made to feel welcome, Fraoch lodge is warm...More

Thank you. We are pleased to know that you enjoyed the trip, even if the idea of biking in for the long day at the end did not exactly fill you with joy. I'm sure you enjoyed the ride out.
Hope to see you again...More
Our family spent a fantastic whole week at Andy and Rebecca’s lodge. I only could say this is the most fabulous and memorable holiday we ever have. It’s just like we visited some friends’ house. Rebecca and Andy’s hospitality always made us warm and relaxed....More

Thank you for your very kind review. We hope you are all keeping well and will consider coming back to see us someday. Perhaps we can show you a different aspect of Skye next time or the far north of Scotland.
I spent 5 days at Fraoch Lodge and went on a 4-day guided tour of the Cairngorms in June. Wonderful experience. I cannot describe the landscape, nor do photos do it justice. Andy is an incredible guide. I learned so much. The lodge itself is...More

Thank you. You will be very welcome if you choose to return. Lots more walking on offer! Pictures will be available soon, Just need to wrestle the camera away from Andy to download the shots he took.
What a contrast to last year when I did the same holiday. 2017 - it was just rain but still an enjoyable experience. Enough to make my friends and I to come back. And now 8 months later what a contrast. Hot and sunny all...More

Always an entertaining experience to have you on one of our trips. Look forward to next time.
My partner and I spent five nights in Boat of Garten with Rebecca and Andy. While we signed-up for level two self-guided hikes these proved to be too much for us. Both Andy and Rebecca were able to suggest easier hikes which took us to...More

Thank you. We hope to see you both again in the not too distant future.
This course was perfect for two casual fair weather walkers to push themselves out of their comfort zone in some seriously snowy Scottish mountains. We experienced full white out conditions and seriously deep snow through the week. Andy did a great job of teaching us...More

We had a terrific day in the Torridon hills with Andy, and enjoyed his walking expertise & guiding and his fascinating geological insights.
A delicious & substantial lunch by Rebecca kept us going.
It was a walk we would not have attempted on our own,...More
Full on proper crampons, ice axe, the works, cutting steps in snow, Glencoe in its winter finery, and Andy as a guide to plan the route, pace the walk, know about avalanche risk, have safety kit and the knowledge of how to use it, and...More
Our holiday this year to escape the stress of everyday life in London was to spend a week in Boat of Garten, near Aviemore at Fraoch Lodge run by Andy and Rebecca assisted by Gregor (their son -a delightful young man full of energy )...More
I stayed in Fraoch Lodge in November 2017. As it was very much low season and I was a solo traveller, I was a little nervous of the potential for extreme weather but my luck was in and it turned out to be a fabulous...More
