Hostel on or near The Findhorn

Post by Jim W » Fri Aug 30, 2013 12:41 am

Does anyone know of a hostel on or near the Findhorn?

Needs to have beds for at least 15.
Been ataying in Aviemore in the past but its 60 mile plus round trip to the Findhorn.

15 minutes closer than Aviemore is Carrbridge. Plenty of hostels and the almost good looking owner of the Cairn Hotel is a boater.
Lets not try to understand each other. Thanks.

I hear he's a better boater than his brother anyway.

EDIT P.s For once ryan is right (albeit a bit biased) the Cairn is a great hotel, with great food and great beer. The banter from Gareth is 'ok' as well.

Will be staying up that way myself in a few weeks while paddling the Findhorn.

Carrbridge bunkhouse is worth a visit, definitely unique!

Have also stayed at Nethy bridge and I think there is a SYHA at Grantown, but Carrbridge is the closest you will find to the upper Findhorn for sure.

Last time we ran the Findhorn we rented the Cromdale Outdoor centre.
sleeps about 30 ish so good for groups and about 17 miles from the river

Cromdale can be booked through Adventure Aberdeen, I do work for them now and again so I guess I may be slightly biased.
