Candacraig House


Candacraig is a family home, so although the decor is luxurious, the atmosphere is always relaxing and warming.

Guests enjoy exclusive use of the impressive formal Dining Room, Drawing Room, Games/Billiards Room, Whisky Library that through many years of collecting provides a leading selection of single malts and Scottish gins, and 12 individually styled bedrooms mostly ensuite, egyptian cotton bedding and complimentary L'Occitane toiletries. The main house sleeps up to 24 and we can also offer accommodation for an additional 4 guests, in cottages adjacent to the main house.

Our resident house manager is available throughout your stay or a full butler service can be provided.

Outdoors, guests have full access to 18 acres of private woodland and manicured lawns, including a large Victorian walled garden, our very own lochan fed by the celebrated River Don and a woodland bonfire area – a very special spot to enjoy a dram by the fire. There is also an outdoor table tennis table, croquet lawn, archery, complimentary bicycles and a children's activity area.  

Candacraig is set within Britain's largest national park, the Cairngorms. The park provides nearly 5000 sq km of protected parklands and contains five of the UK's highest mountains.
