This homely bungalow with a pretty garden brimming with wildlife is perfect for nature lovers, or those looking for a restful holiday away from the pressures of everyday life.

The property is in a secluded spot, just a few miles from the main road, but surrounded by forest. It's half a mile to the River Findhorn for riverside strolls, eagle-spotting or a little fishing – by prior arrangement, and only a mile to the village which has a well-stocked shop. The house backs onto managed forest where deer roam freely and there are plenty of trails to explore. Golf lovers will be delighted to find several courses nearby, the closest being Carrbridge, 9 miles away, with plenty of other options both in the Cairngorms and in Inverness. With shopping in Inverness, 17 miles away, and more strenuous hikes in Aviemore, 15 miles, there is something for everyone within easy reach.

 

The bungalow is deceptively roomy inside and has a pleasant open feel, with many windows letting in lots of light. Sit back in the comfortable living room in front of the open fire and enjoy watching the wildlife coming and going in the mature gardens. Previous guests have been lucky enough to see deer, red squirrels, rabbits, weasels and a whole host of birds. The kitchen boasts an Aga that keeps the house toasty, plus a dishwasher and microwave and there's a utility room to leave muddy boots in, with a washing machine and dryer. The double bedroom has an en-suite and both twin rooms have a wash basin, as well as the main bathroom with a shower over the bath.

 

Keen fishers can store their catch in the outside chest freezer, and there's a BBQ and garden furniture ready for freshly cooked salmon alfresco.

 

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Tomatin is a lovely area. There are lots of places to walk and enjoy the views and historical atmosphere. Learag is a 1970s family home beautifully situated and well equipped. Cooking with an aga stove is a bit different. There is now a good community shop and cafe in the village. If you do happen to bring a dog remember that this is the Highlands Read moreand there are ticks so remember to have their tick medication up to date and bring grooming equipment. Have a wonderful time. Hide

Learag was in a wonderful setting. The house felt like a hunting lodge inside. The lounge was a stunning place to spend time infant of the roaring open fire. We found the AGA an interesting way of cooking, and managed very well with the turkey and trimmings on Christmas Day!

Learag was extremely comfortable and spacious, with a lovely large garden. The house and grounds are extremely private, with no neighbours nearby. We had a very peaceful stay, and enjoyed the range of wildlife visiting the garden. You can hear the A9 sometimes when the prevailing wind is in that direction, but it is not overly obtrusive. Other timeRead mores you can't hear it at all. The house is very well equipped, and the Aga is easy to use, even by a novice. NOTE -The description of the property states that there is a pub within a mile. This is misleading. There used to be a pub there, but it has been closed for at least 5 years, and is now a private residence. The house details should be altered accordingly to reflect this. Hide

Learag is a lovely house in a beautiful setting. The wildlife in the garden and immediate area is quite special.
