Property code: CA211

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.

We found all excellent. The garden was beautiful and we were very happy to see the red deer join us frequently. I could perhaps say that I found that the Aga cooker made the kitchen rather too hot but Lilianne used it very well despite not having met one before.

Fantastic property and location, a true home from home. Lovely (secure) garden for those bringing dogs. We really enjoyed watching the many birds that came to the garden, as well as deer in the meadow you overlook. A short (1 mile each way) walk to Tomatin, with a super community cafe and shop, plus woods to see red squirrels, if you are lucky. We Read morewere sad to leave and would definitely go again. Hide

We really enjoyed staying at Learag. It had everything we needed. The garden was beautiful, home to lots of birds, the occasional hare and even a red squirrel one morning. Perfect!

Beautiful large and spacious bungalow, with a wonderful large garden, in a amazing setting with everything you need and more, went out for a walk every morning and saw more deer than people, brilliant place to stay even better if you have a dog as our Labrador would agree Pete, Nikki and Alfie ( the lab).

Learag is spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The huge garden is a delight for both humans and dogs. Proximity to the A9 allows easy access to the coast, hills and Inverness, with traffic noise only noticeable in the morning. Even then it does not drown out the birdsong. Although, due to Covid rules, we never met the housekeeper, she had thRead moreoughtfully left bacon, eggs, bread, butter and milk in the fridge for our arrival.
