Glenbeg Bunkhouse is a light, bright and airy converted farmhouse that sleeps up to 27 people over three rooms, two bunk-rooms of 11 and 12 beds each, and a cosier 4-bed room. The building is double-glazed and central heated throughout, and as such is extremely cosy year round. Downstairs 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 make and communal female bathrooms - give access to sink, toilet or shower on a minimum of 1:5 basis.  There is also a hanging and drying area for coats & footwear.

The adjacent Glenbeg Bothy is a converted steading offering snug and 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. The bunk-room sleeps six people, with a guest-bed also available if necessary.A spacious wetroom, suitably equipped to assist wheelchair users and others with disabilities, adjoins the bunkroom. The well-equipped kitchen and dining area is at the other end of the building and includes a wood burner for cosy evenings. The bothy is centrally heated.

Bunkhouse & Bothy can be booked separate to each other to suit groups of between 6 & 27 people, or together for larger groups of up to 33 people. There is also a 4-bed summerhouse that can be used to give a few extra beds to add to a small group that is staying in the Bothy, or a larger group staying in the bunkhouse, or to increase capacity to 37 beds in total.

Entertainment-wise, other than the glorious setting to enjoy, both properties have a selection of books and games, & there are 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.

We welcome everybody…couples and families, friends having a party, stag & hen, school / college / university groups, & in general groups large or small that are combining their stay with us with some of our activities, cyclists, bikers & car tourers – Grantown is at one end of the Snow Roads, & also a convenient stop before hitting the North Coast 500, North East 250 or Malt Whisky Trail – walkers – the Speyside Way passes Grantown & it’s the southern end of the Dava Way – & paddlers – an ideal stopover for Spey descents – basically any group that needs accommodation as they spend time in or pass through the area, through to companies that are seeking an ‘away from it all’ meeting base. The Bothy may also be suited to groups that include people with disabilities, as it is all on one level for wheelchair access and has a wetroom that is equipped accordingly, & the summerhouse also gives private space for those needing privacy due to additional needs, but able to remain included overall with the rest of the group for the social aspect.
