The Scottish Highlands region

The Cairngorm area has some of the most spectacular scenery in Scotland and is designated a National Park

The area is an outdoor enthusiast's paradise offering skiing, snowboarding, walking, climbing, cycling, sailing, canoeing, white water rafting, horseriding, shooting, birdwatching and fishing.

The mountains offer a funicular railway (open all year) and the highest restaurant in Great Britain.

Watersports (kayaking, canoeing, windsurfing) are available on nearby Loch Morlich (with a golden, sandy beach) and Loch Insh (also nearby) offers watersports and pleasure boat trips.

Quad biking, clay pigeon shooting, jeep safari tours, a fish farm and lots more are on offer in the Rothiemurchus Estate, 2 miles from the cottage. Glenmore Forest park is also excellent for walks along the river.

For something completely different, you can feed the reindeer on the mountain( the only herd in the U.K.) or try your hand at controlling a team of huskies(no snow required) or even go grass sledging or you can simply enjoy the stunning natural beauty of the National Park with its mountains, lochs, rivers and forests.

Two golf courses are within walking distance of the cottage; one of them the champonship Spey Valley course.

Other local attractions include Landmark forest adventure park, Strathspey steam railway,(runs past the house), Cairngorms reindeer centre, sleddog adventure centre, Freezone Aerial course and Highland Wildlife Park.

A number of distilleries also lie within the area and offer tours and tastings.


The village of Aviemore, within walking distance of the cottage, caters for the holidaymaker's every need. There is a Tesco supermarket, butcher, bakers, chemist and a wide range of cafes, restaurants and ski/bike/mountain/equipment shops. There is also a new Costcutter supermarket and fish and chip shop just minutes walk from the cottage.

Swimming pool, conference centre, cinema and indoor shopping complex can be found in the Aviemore centre.

Aviemore also hosts a number of events throughout the year such as the national husky event in February and Thunder in the Glens, a spectacle of hundreds of motor bikes.

"Lovely cottage"

We had a wonderful time in this lovely cottage near the Dalfaber leisure club and pool. The accommodation was great and close to a Costcutter that is open every day from 7am. We also enjoyed the free … More

Lovely to hear that you enjoyed the cottage and the leisure facilities that are so close by.
Hope to hear from you again next year.

"Cosy Cottage"

Had a lovely stay at this cottage, highly recommend, very warm and comfortable especially in the winter months, great coming in for a day skiing to a warm cosy cottage, plenty of living space and everything you need if staying in to cook a meal. Imagine this would be wonderful to stay in the summer as the garden was lovely, plenty of space to eat outside and even a bbq. Great stay and will book again.

Many thanks for your very positive comments and look forward to welcoming you back next year when you can enjoy the garden.

"Lovely house in perfect location"

We've recently returned from staying in this house with a family of friends. There were 6 of us staying - 4 adults and 2 children. The house was very clean and warm, plenty of hot water always as well. The location was brilliant as only a shirt drive to the ski resort and a nice 20 min stroll into Aviemore town where we found some nice bars and restaurants. The Mountain Cafe is a must for breakfast! We would highly recommend staying in this cheating property.

Delighted to hear that you had a great holiday. I would agree that the house is in a good location, only a few minutes walk from the Dalfaber Club and a pleasant walk from the village. I hope that you managed to visit the new local shops and tried out the new chippy and new pizzeria.

"Warm , Comfortable and clean"

We have stayed here previously and as before found the accomodation to be clean ,warm and well equiped . Included in the rental is a free pass to Dalfaber country club. The property is idealy situated within walkind distance of Aviemore. We have already booked to return.

Good to hear that you have enjoyed your stay once again. Braeriach is certainly in an excellent location for all amenities and is very close to the Dalfaber Golf and Country Club. Looking forward to welcoming you in the near future.

"Great location, dog and child friendly would definitely return"

We spent a great week with our young baby and dog, the bungalow was ideal. Aviemore centre was only a short walk and the country club virtually a stones throw. Cairngorm brewery was only just around the corner an well worth a look. Seemed like Aviemore had plenty to offer families through the year and great for walks. Bridge Inn was dog and baby friendly and we had an evening meal at Papa Rock, great food and very family orientated, dogs allowed in the front bar area. If you have a less than obedient dog (like ours) the garden was not fully enclosed and there was no hot water the day we arrived, the boiler did come on overnight and was fine the rest of the week.

Good to hear that you had a great week. Braeriach is certainly in an excellent location and so close to the Dalfaber Club.
We accept that the garden is not fully enclosed but the fact that we lie at the end of a cul-de sac means there is no passing traffic.
Hope that our prompt reply solved the issue with the booster switch.

"Exactly as described if not better"

Had a wonderful stay in the cottage, very clean, spacious and comfortable. Enjoyed the leisure club too. Thanks for making the property dog friendly, would definately recommend.

Lovely to hear that you all, including the dog, had a great time at Braeriach.
Hope to hear from you again at some point.

The house was everything it was advertised to be!. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived and had everything that you could need. Decor was modern and the fresh flowers in the dining room was a lovely touch. Hope to return in the future.Would definately recommend this accomodation

Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for looking after the cottage so well.
