Had a lovely week staying in Sundowner Cottage! The cottage was a real home from home and nice to come back to after our days out. The boys enjoyed the table tennis, and Judy and Jules made us all very welcome. Lots to do in the area, Strathspey Railway, Balmoral, Cairngorms, and brilliant mountain biking at Laggan Wolftrax!!

Management response:

Thanks for the great review. We are delighted that you all enjoyed the place and hope we will see you all again soon. If you bring your bike, we will show you some of the superb natural singletrack round here!

Great self catering cottage. Clean,warm, furnished to a high standard. Friendly hosts. Perfect location -plenty to do in this area and the hosts provided good tips. We were out and about every day cycling, walking,zip wiring,visiting wildlife park. But it was always a pleasure to return to the cottage. Brilliant Easter break.

Management response:

Many thanks for your great review - we are really pleased that you enjoyed the area and the cottage. We seem to still be finding new activities and bike rides to recommend in the area, so do come back!
