Wanting to find somewhere special to stay whilst enjoying a short break to the Scottish Highlands, this was the perfect cottage to call home.
The cottage has a lovely garden with a fantastic fire pit and wooden deck to enjoy the beautiful scenery from. The nearest neighbors being the sheep in the fields surrounding, it is private and peaceful, we ended up spending far more time at the cottage than we had initially planned, we felt so relaxed and you can explore so much straight from the front door.
Inside the cottage is beautifully decorated- a perfect mix of old vintage and contemporary furniture and fixings. All the mod cons available, we wanted for nothing. The cottage was very warm and comfortable, especially when enjoying a glass of wine by the wood burning stove. Lots of sweet touches, many books about the local area, some classic fiction as well as some games to play in the evening. Especially appreciated the local newspaper alongside the day's newspaper awaiting us on the coffee table.
Great service also, even when booking, the friendly owners were happy to answer my questions and make recommendations on what to see and do in the local area. Having come to learn about the cottage through having visited their excellent pub and restaurant in Aviemore, I had high expectations and they were far exceeded. Looking forward to our next visit in the summer!
Side note, although it is near to the railway after the first train passing, it didn't disturb us at all.
A birthday treat, we spent three nights here. The cottage is just lovely and decorated to a high standard. Although close to the railway line, we were not disturbed when trains passed. The cottage is made of strong stuff!
We spent the weekend walking around the beautiful country side, eating local produce and lighting fires!! All in all a very relaxing stay in beautiful surroundings.
