Very Good

“This was our third visit to Birchtree Cottage, a perfect location for many local attractions.”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2020

There are local attractions to suit all tastes from Grandparents to young children, for example, Landmark Adventure Park for the kids, Loch Insh water sports, Speyside Railway, the Heather Centre, RSPB Abernathy and National Trust properties to name a few. We even managed a ride on the Jacobite Special train, Fort William to Mallaig, taking the journey from Carrbridge to Fort William via Loch Laggan and back via Loch Ness. The quiet port of Burghead is within easy reach, ideal for sand yachting or wind surfing. The dolphins are often out and about there too. If you are a jet plane fan, the RAF place near Lossiemouth is for you. For arts, crafts and book lovers, there is Logie Steading near Forres, reached by a scenic moorland road. We hope to return next year.

A wonderful base for a large family gathering. Generous room sizes, great and well equipped communal spaces, and fantastic location. Modern and thoughtfuly designed. Out of the (relative) bustle of Aviemore, Carbridge offers the perfect base for all kinds of outdoors activities, be that a walk in the woods directly acccessed from the fenced-in rear garden, or wider a field for all the fun and activities the NP has to offer.
