A group of 8 plus 2 dogs stayed in the Top Flat in May for a week's hill walking. The accommodation was ideal for us because it comprises 5 rooms with twin beds and as a group of friends a lot of accommodation is ruled out because it's mainly double rooms. The flat is comfortable and the living room and dining room are spacious so seating 8 was no problem (and would have been fine with 10 people). The kitchen is slightly small but we didn't find it a problem and there's plenty of crockery/cutlery/cooking utensils etc. The bathrooms don't have showers but the plentiful hot water and large baths made up for it (especially after a day's walking). The views from the flat are stunning and to top it all, an Osprey visited the garden morning and evening - it doesn't get much better than that!

Had a great stay at No.4, the house was spotlessly clean and well equipped. The views from the house are stunning, and whilst the weather is uncontrollable, the varieties of light and skyscapes create an ever moving panorama that always draws us back. Ample fuel for the solid fuel fire was also welcomed, and our daughter made good use of the riding stables just a couple of hundred yards away and the walks from the house are superb. We had a great time.

Alvie Estate is, in the heart of Highlands, a place of absolute peace and well-being. All is perfectly managed to make your stay the best you can dream. The staff is very kind and reactive, chalets and cottages well fitted to be cosy and quiet.
We know Alvie Estate since years and have never been disappointed: every stay there is a great moment of pleasure, to enjoy the local activities. We can hardly imagine a better place to taste Scotland... a wee dram in the hand!

Since 1990, we love to go every year at Alvie for a 6-week stay with good friends. During all those years, Park Cottage became my second home, with a good comfort and full equipment, very nice and helpful people always prepared to help us with promptitude if we may have a special need. The Alvie location is superb and the view from the hills extrordinary scenic. When climbing up to the hills with my dog and falcons, I have the feeling to reach the paradise. My paradise.

We loved our stay here at the Alvie estate so much that we extended our holiday. The cottage, Wester Delfour 4, was well equipped for self catering, and beautiful for relaxing in the heart of the Cairngorms. The cottage was perfect for relaxing in front of the log fire and enjoying the view of the mountains over the fields after a day of strenuous hiking and activities. The place has a definate homely feel while also feeling clean and new.

We also tried out some of the activities on the estate; such as the horse riding and sampling their fresh venison. They were fantastic. The location is secluded enough to feel like you're getting away from it all, but still in short driving distance to bigger towns such as Aviemore and the whisky distilleries at Pitlochery.

Includes all modern conveniences and comforts as well as wifi and a landline phone.
We would love to return and would definately recommend the estate to others.

Room Tip: Wester Dalfour 4 is a great cottage to choose

Have stayed in Wester Delfour 4 cottage several times now over past few years, and have always enjoyed our stay. Cottage is clean and warm, and the kitchen well equipped. The wood/coal burning stove radiates plenty heat, and gives a cosy ambience on a cold night. Wi fi works well, as does TV. Bathroom is small but functional, shower water pressure could be better, but is adequate. My family (wife and two adult children) love our short vacations there, and will certainly return at some point.

We stayed at Alvie for the first time over 20 year ago and returned with the whole family last November to celebrate our daughter's 21st birthday. Seems strange to say it, but it was the ideal spot with easy travel arrangements for family coming from London, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Ullapool!
The house was just as beautiful as we remembered. It is so cosy with thick comfy carpets that you bounce along on, snug beds and huge baths with loads of hot water. We had the top flat for 10 people and it is really well equipped with everything you need to throw a great birthday dinner. It is spotless too there's not a speck of dust anywhere - and as we had a great game of hide an seek with my two year old niece so we were under beds, behind furniture and inside wardrobes!
The area around Aviemore has lots to do for all ages - we enjoyed an afternoon going up the Cairngorm funicular railway and a great coffee in the cafe at the top so you don't need to be super fit to have a good time. Can't wait to visit again.

Room Tip: We had Gran with us and she found the lack of a walk in shower a bit of a miss but as the flat below...
