Location - Fantastic : just behind the railway station, 5 mins walk away and therefore also 5 mins walk away from the bus stop and the centre of Aviemore.
Facilities - Fantastic : cozy, warm, everything needed for a self catering stay. Great touch on arrival with the gift hamper (milk, tea, coffee, sugar, Processco, pate, biscuits, oatcakes, beers, etc etc..).
Owners - Fantastic : friendly, helpful (wifi signal inside the Bothy was not good during our stay because of the weather and of course the superb insulation - I needed to do some work during my trip but really easy to sit in the guest house foyer to work when I needed to).
Overall - yes, you guessed it..... Fantastic!!
I can't recommend this place enough. Location is perfect and very close to the main street. We arrived to prosecco, chocolates, pate and crackers which was a lovely touch. The bothy is spacious and very clean and warm. After a long day of driving, we visited the local butchers on the main road and bought a delicious steak pie, and had a night in the bothy enjoying the complimentary prosecco. The self catering facilities were great, with oil, tea, coffee, milk and all basics available. There are board games and dvds in the bothy so we saved some money and had a cosy night in. The shower is fine, very soft and comfortable bed. I really can't fault this place. There is also a guest book which gives ideas of things to do in the area. We will definitely be back!
Was a really nice few days stay! Bothy was very clean and cozy! Had everything we could have needed.
Had a fantastic stay at the Ardlogie bothy. We were greeted by a lovely bottle of white wine and some fresh bread upon arrival. The lodge was very clean and tidy and we felt very comfortable from the start. The lodge is such a warm and homely place to stay when visiting Aviemore and I would highly recommend it to anyone. The hot tub was a very welcome addition as well!
Lovely location near the Strathspey Railway and Aviemore shops, restaurants and cafes. This Bothy is very cute and cosy for one or two people and has everything equipment wise you need for a week long stay or less. It is decorated in a cosy Scottish way with a homely feel. Maybe being picky but we didn't find the bed very comfortable (dipped in the middle) and the shower cubicle space not easy to get into (quite narrow) but we had a good week seeing family and it sufficed. We were greeted with a gift of cheese, milk, wine and bread which was very nice indeed. We didn't try the hot tub but appreciated the fluffy white dressing gowns. Kirsty the owner was very welcoming.

Probably not what you would think was a great honeymoon destination, but having just tied the knot and three days later finding out my pregnant bride was not allowed to fly, meaning the trip to Austria was a no no..and my new brides request of mountains, snow and a log cabin!; this far outweighed our expectations.
The owners were absolutely fantastic and completely lovely and welcoming. The cabin was an absolute delight..and far more romantic than just a ski chalet as I suspect it is normally used for.
As luck would have it there was snow on the ground, and although the owners had no control over the weather, it could not have been more perfect for shutting ourselves away for a few nights to enjoy our mini-moon (as we called it!)..
We will definitely be returning with our baby boy, as we promised
We have spent 4 lovely days at Ardlogie Bothy in Aviemore. The accommodation is very well located as it is only a short walk from the town center on a quiet road. The owners are very friendly and made us feel at home. They even left for us some wine, pâté and oatcakes as a welcome present. The Bothy is nicely decorated and has everything you would need. It is a nice and warm place to come to in the evening after some great walks. Aviemore has a good amount of walks and distractions to offer. Highly recommended!
