Part of the award-winning Craggan Outdoors activity centre, Glenbeg Bunkhouse & the adjacent Bothy are located in a secluded rural spot at the top of the Glenbeg Estate, a couple of miles outside Grantown-on-Spey, & from the activity centre.
Glenbeg Bunkhouse is a light, bright & airy converted farmhouse that sleeps up to 27 people over three rooms, two bunk-rooms of 11 & 12 beds each, and a cosier 4-bed room. The building is double-glazed & central heated throughout, and as such is extremely cosy year-round.
Glenbeg Bothy is a converted steading offering snug & cosy accommodation across a single floor. Parking right outside the front door and level access make it a good option for groups that include those with a disability, including wheelchair users.
There is also a 4-bed summerhouse beside the bunkhouse which is used spring to autumn to offer additional beds for slightly larger groups, offering capacity of up to 37 beds.
Downstairs in the bunkhouse is a large open-plan kitchen – well equipped for group self-catering – and dining / common room area, with a range of tables and seating to suit the requirements of how different groups choose to use the space. Bathroom facilities – one private bathroom and communal male and communal female bathrooms – give access to sink, toilet or shower on a minimum of a 1:5 basis. There is also a hanging and drying area for coats & footwear.
In the bothy, a spacious wetroom, suitably equipped to assist wheelchair users and others with disabilities, adjoins the bunkroom. The well-equipped kitchen & dining / common room area is at the other end of the building & includes a wood burner for cosy evenings. The bothy is centrally heated.
Entertainment-wise, other than the glorious setting to enjoy, books and games are provided, as is a flatscreen TV/DVD for the playing of DVDs and plugging in your Wii, Playstation or Xbox – please note that we deliberately choose to have no TV reception – and a radio/CD/MP3 player. There is a small stock of CDs & DVDs, but feel free to bring your own aswell.
For walkers & mountain bikers, you couldn’t be better placed to get straight out on to the paths & trails of the Glenbeg & adjoining Lochindorb estates, as well as the start of the Dava Way around 1.5 miles away. And of course the wide range of activities offered by Craggan Outdoors is also on hand.
Prices vary from £15.25 to £22 per person per night, dependent upon the number of people in your group and duration of stay, on a self-catering / own bedding basis.
