You'll find much more information about the lodge and area on our website. We are sure you'll be hard pushed to find a lodge that delivers more.

Dog Friendly
We love our dogs too, and well-behaved dogs are very welcome at Smithy Croft. There are so many walks right from the front door, along the River Dulnain and through the pine and birch woods near the lodge. There is a tap outside the kitchen door if you need to give pooch a rinse after a muddy walk.

We ask that no dogs are allowed in the bedrooms and that they are kept off the furniture. Dogs may not be left alone in the house unless securely crated. There is a charge for each dog - £10. This will be charged after your booking and we'll get in touch to arrange it.

Where you’ll be

Highland, Scotland, United Kingdom

Perfect for active families and adventure lovers!
Carrbridge and the surrounding area are known as the playground of the Highlands, there is so much to do for all ages… and abilities. You'll find plenty of things to do on our blog at Caledonian Escapes, however here are some of the highlights …. zip lining, mountain biking, skiing, climbing, go karting and quad biking, fishing, clay pigeon shooting, hill walking, sailing, gorge walking, lying on the beach… ! We're sure there will be something for you.

Equally, Carrbridge itself is lovely quiet village so you can really get away from the hustle and bustle here and enjoy a slower pace of life. The Old Packhorse Bridge is just a short walk from the lodge and it’s worth a photo at this iconic landmark. The village itself has a shop, a petrol station and a couple of cafes, restaurants and pubs so you can enjoy some local cuisine a short walk from the lodge.

You'll find lots more ideas of what to explore on our Caledonian Escapes social media feeds and website :)
