We have just had a wonderful week in Drum cottage. The cottage and grounds are fabulous with quality furnishings and fittings. The property was cleaned to the highest standards and had everything that we needed for cooking. There are restaurants and take aways dotted around NethyBridge, Grantown and Aviemire and supermarkets in each also. Great walRead moreks around Loch Insh, we went back there a second day to have a day of water sports. We also loved the serene Loch Eilein for a shorter walk. Hide

We have a fab week at Drum Cottage. Being in the middle of nowhere meant we felt we have completely escaped. The cottage is in a great spot and is really comfortable. The hosts were helpful and friendly when we had a couple of queries. We would book to stay there again very happily.

Cleanliness was a huge missing factor. We were bombarded by a bunch of 10 - 15 flies in each rooms, probably hiding in the curtains. We opened the windows to lead them out, still we end up finding few again after few hours. The sofas in the living rooms seemed to have a lot of dust as it ended up giving us itches all over our body. The kettle & toaRead morester were extremely dirty, hence we ended up not using them. The only good thing about the place are its surroundings. Hide
