Live out an unforgettable adventure at this grandiose self-catering home in Aviemore and enjoy jaw-dropping views, peaceful seclusion and lashings of home comforts that are sure to delight all generations.

The most fantastic base for walkers, leisure-seekers and keen sportsmen, this Aviemore home brings the best of the Cairngorms and leaves it on the doorstep. Rewarding guests with incredible views overlooking the mountains and with easy access to the start of the biker-haven Burma Road, there are plenty of ways to experience the surrounds first-hand. As well as adventure, this property also offers a secluded paradise where relaxed mornings and chilled-out afternoons can be dragged out with picnics and playtime, relishing a free agenda and hours to spend exactly as you please.

As soon as you pull up on the private driveway of this Edwardian country home, you will immediately gain a sense of the scale and quality within. Peppered with cute nooks to snuggle up with a book and open spaces perfect for socialising, there is somewhere to suit every mood. Starting your day in the well-appointed kitchen, the soothing tones, abundant natural light and generous appliances (all centred around a gorgeous Aga) create the ideal setting for preparing culinary masterpieces for the whole family. Gather around the breakfast island for steaming cups of tea and treats of Scottish shortbread or head into the separate dining area through the kitchen's attractive archway to share plates piled high with local goodies. For a more formal evening meal, there is also another dining room with a table and chairs and enough space for everyone to gather around. Later on, while the adults make tracks towards the lounge to crack open a bottle of Scottish whisky or smooth red wine to accompany fireside chatter, the youngsters will adore spending time in the pool room. When tiredness eventually kicks in, you will find the bedrooms on the first floor, all ready to ensure everyone has a dreamy night's sleep. These include four double bedrooms (three of which have en-suites), one twin bedroom and a single bedroom.

The kind of property you will love spending time in come rain or shine, this family home has year-round appeal. While winters are extra romantic curled up by the open fire after hours on the ski slopes, hazy summer days are best spent outside in the grounds, playing games of frisbee, hide and seek and quietly watching out for the shy deer, pine martens and red squirrels who sometimes pay a visit. Just keep an eye on any curious  youngsters in your party who might be tempted to roam further afield, as the private gardens are unenclosed.

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

Please note there is a refundable £250 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Lynwilg house was a fantastic holiday home. It was very spacious for our family of 6 but would be loads of room for 2 families. The beds were really comfortable and we all slept really well too. The gardens are large and impressive and although close to the a9, you aren't aware of it at all. Lorna the host was really helpful and friendly too.

This is a magnificent property - a wonderful place for a family get together. Comfortable beds, many bathrooms/loos. A pool table. Beautiful house and garden and a perfect location. Close to the amenities of Aviemore but also close to many walks in the Cairngorms and in Rothiemurchus. Lorna was very helpful responsive to any questions we had.

Large and cozy Manor House in massive grounds and with Incredible views. Comfortable and we made great use of the pool table. There is easy access to Aviemore and some great local walks. Ignore the post code for finding the house and follow the road signs off the A9 for Linwilg.

A great holiday and a super property. The pool table needs replacing, but otherwise the property was very clean and satisfactory.

As soon as you get to this stunning house you realise how special it is the house is just beautiful and the enormous gardens and scenery are to die for. Inside the house was absolutely spotless so clean and tidy and there's everything you need for your stay and much more. We had 9 adults and 2 young kids in our party and there was plenty fridge andRead more freezer space as there's an additional large chest freezer. There's a bbq so you can either cook out the front or back there's loads of seats too. Hide

Great location just off the A9 and only a few minutes drive to the shops in Aviemore. We had a great stay with plenty of room for everyone and the games room provided much entertainment.

We have just spent a long weekend at Lynwilg and found the house to be great for a party of 10 adults. There were plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate all. The kitchen was particularly well equipped, nothing we couldn't find. The space , both inside and out was great, room for all to spread out. Mention must be made of Lorna, whose attenRead moretion to detail was much appreciated, table set for dinner, fresh flowers in some rooms. We even wondered if she had a hand in arranging the fantastic weather and the icing on the cake, - the spectacular display from the golden eagle chasing the buzzards on the hill behind the house! We will definitely have a return visit. Hide

We really enjoyed our stay. The arrangements of bedrooms and bathrooms was great. Loved the kitchen and all the endless fridges and freezers (important as we were three families). Not to mention the super garden which was great for the children to play in and the adults to ear outside. We hope to return!

We had a fantastic weekend at Lynwilg House. Perfect for a large family gathering. House was immaculate - clean, cosy and welcoming.
