Folds cottage is small south facing farmhouse which enjoys all day sunshine and the stunning mountain views to the Cairngorms National Park. Folds is surrounded by a fenced garden. Pets are welcome.<BR><BR>Our location on the hillside is spectacular and wildlife viewing from the cottage of roe deer, buzzards, kestrels and red squirrels makes it a special, but remote place. Travelling on the quiet local roads is enjoyed by our visitors and there are wonderful walks on the Glenlivet Crown Estate along with more wildlife and walks throughout the Cairngorms National Park. Dufftown is the centre of the Malt Whisky Industry and there are many distilleries open to the public offering free tours and tastes including The Glenlivet, Glenfiddich and Glenfarclas. For a change from mountain air it is an hours drive to the coast with stunni... Read more

The cottage is cozy and comfortable. Lots of hours...

Six of us (3 adults and 3 children aged 7-10) stayed for a week during February half term. It was fabulous. Steve was great and very helpful - he ferried us and our luggage up the snow covered track to the cottage in his 4x4 when we first arrived - and the cottage was lovely.

We're currently booking our next vacation to a different part of Scotland when I realized I never reviewed Folds Cottage. In my head I've been comparing perspective self-catering cottages to Folds Cottage. We had a fantastic stay at this cottage. The location is beautiful with scenic vistas. You can even see the Glenlivet distillery in the distance. It's just down...
