A lovely, well equipped, cosy cottage with fantastic views. Red squirrels, pheasents, hares and all sorts of birds frequent the garden. There are many things to do in the area.

Really enjoyed our week at Wagtail Watch. Quite spacious with wonderful views from just about every window. Fairly well equipped, maybe could do with a bigger freezer. The owner was very helpful on the odd occasion we needed her. We would recommend 100%

Wagtail Wafch is a warm and comfortable cottage set in a beautiful location with magnificent views to the front and rear. It is situated in easy reach of Aviemore and Fort William. The feeders in the grounds attract Red Squirrels along with several birds. Highly recommended
