From the owner

The Shelter Stone is a beautiful Grade C listed house situated in the ever-popular Aviemore, within the Cairngorms National Park. The house sleeps up to 13 people in comfort (in a mixture of double, twin & family rooms), and is ideally located for year-round relaxing, adventurous holidays and short breaks.

The house boasts a large lounge (with open fire), dining room and well-equipped kitchen (electric range cooker, American style fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, kettle etc.). In addition, there is a separate utility room with Belfast sink and washing machine. Free unlimited superfast broadband Wi-Fi is available throughout the house.

There is a large family bedroom (double & single, with ensuite) on the ground floor, with a further 5 bedrooms (3 doubles, 2 twins) upstairs, 2 with en-suite plus an additional bathroom and separate toilet. There is a travel cot and high chair available for use should you need it.

Our back garden is perfect for al fresco dining should the Scottish weather be kind, with picnic tables and a BBQ available.

We have plenty of off-road parking to the front & rear of the property. Also to the rear is our private garage, providing secure external storage for bikes/skis/canoes etc. (although please note that we cannot accept liability for your valuable kit!). We also have a private EV charge point.

The Shelter Stone is right in the centre of Aviemore, just a few minutes walk from shops, pubs & restaurants. A perfect base for exploring the wonders that the Cairngorms have to offer.

During our peak summer and October holiday periods our minimum stay is 5 night and 4 nights respectively. 3 night weekends will be considered in October. Please contact us to discuss. Friday/Monday arrivals preferred. Saturday arrivals may incur additional charges.

Pets by prior arrangement only.

Well behaved (!) Stags & Hens welcome (please get in touch before you book for these).
