Formerly a five star Guest House , the Old Ministers is a grand house offering luxury in a home away from home.

Our Story

We are delighted to be the owners of our dream home since June 2017.  Having experienced the corporate world for many years, a change of lifestyle was very welcome, and we are proud to provide a luxury ‘home away from home’ for visitors from all over the world. You will find The Old Minister’s House to be more than you ever expected from a self-catering house. The attention to detail will make you smile, our riverside views will enthral you, our Scandinavian BBQ bothy will provide some great evening’s entertainment and our hot tub will give you some well needed relaxation. All this and the Cairngorm National Park with lots of adventures on your doorstep. The most frequent comment we hear from our guests is ‘we wish we had stayed longer’.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Old Minister’s House.

Built in 1895, The Old Minister’s House is steeped with character and history. Originally built to house the local parish minister, this grand house has been tastefully updated in recent years to be a spacious and luxurious home away from home.

A great night’s sleep with black-out curtains, pocket sprung mattresses and Egyptian cotton sheets. You can enjoy the wilderness of the highlands with the comforts of high speed WIFI and bedside USB chargers.

The Old Ministers House is a detached property set within private grounds at Inverdruie, Aviemore. We sit on the River Druie which gives spectacular views and easy access to the Cairngorms. With six beautiful ensuite bedrooms there is plenty of space for everyone to get together or find some ‘me’ time.
