Immaculately decorated in cool blues and whites, with high ceilings, exposed beams and glowing wooden floors, this is a superb place to eat and drink together. The contemporary kitchen is well-equipped and sparkling clean ready for you to enjoy creating some memorable meals. Enjoy sitting down together at the stylish country table and benches and get toasty warm in front of the beautifully decorated wood burner. Next door is the delightful sitting room, charmingly decorated in traditional Highland style, full of character with beautiful French antique furniture and another wood burner for cosying up in the evening after a day out exploring. Also downstairs is the beautiful twin room, with floral decor and an elegant bathroom next door, complete with an elegant roll-top bath for a luxurious soak at the end of the day.

Lovely spacious, warm and well equipped cottage in an amazing location, was perfect for our Xmas holiday (we enjoyed the decorated tree and Xmas hamper!). The owners were incredibly helpful and responsive when a storm took out the powerlines, bringing additional wood and water for us to tide us over until it came back on. We will definitely be backRead more! Hide

This is a beautiful cottage in a wonderfully secluded loaction, within easy reach of nearby Nethy Bridge. It is a great location for exploring the Cairngorms with lots of great walks and cycle routes nearby. The cottage is well equipped and beauifully furnished. We have stayed in this place twice now and were lucky enough to have daily visits from Read morethe local deer and pheasants and saw a plethora of birdlife in the garden. A wonderful place to take a week off life! Hide

5 star location with perfect privacy. Kitchen/diner is an excellent large space. Lounge less comfortable but functional. Boot room entry is perfect for storage. Respite visit so had a disability buggy, wheelchair, camping chairs and levy of outdoor things. TV is a small addition in the corner of lounge with Netflix etc. WiFi has sporadic connectionRead more. Downstairs was ideal for our limited mobility person (bathroom adjacent) We felt all beds uncomfy & bulky pillows but still enjoyed our 7 night stay Hide

Fantastic secluded spot which meant eating out was a bit of a trip - but my fault for not looking closely at the location. Lovely characterful property but had less polish than the photos conjured eg. sofas/seating a little uncomfortable for a cosy night in - TV a bit small and in a dark corner - bath enamel a bit chipped and a few squeaky beds butRead more on the whole very clean bed/bath linen and sufficient dining/washing up/ laundry facilities - great boot room.

A wonderful cottage in an accessible yet remote location. The views from the south west facing garden were simply stunning. The boot room was an added bonus - perfect for storing wet and muddy walking attire. The two wood burners kept us warm in the evenings to top up the excellent electric heating. A wonderful trip that will live long in the memorRead morey. Hide
