The setting avoids the crowds of downtown Aviemore, which is nice; it's also right next door to the Rothiemurchus activities center, perfect if you want to go horseback riding. The decor is fresh, with the pastel tartan fabrics brightened by more vibrant matching shades in the lamps. The rooms are comfortable and spacious, even the "smaller" room on the first floor. Shelagh has thought of every detail, from the stool in the entry way for removing your hiking books, to the right number of plugs, to free wifi, to an iPad for guest use in the living room, to blackout curtains and a pillow menu. Really nice to have a licensed inn, so you can have a tot of single malt after a long day's hike and not have to drive anywhere. (Be sure to have a car for this location.) Shelagh was very accommodating to our gluten-free needs, and even put a little GF treat in my sister's room for her. She is also very knowledgeable about food, and not only puts on a nice breakfast, but scored us some excellent dinner reservations. The whole establishment is spotless and beautifully maintained. I highly recommend this place. We stayed in the first room on the left at the top of the stairs.
