Dolphins and seals navigate the seas, while otters, ospreys and sea eagles fish in the lochs and rivers.

"Number 1 Holiday Cottage in Scotland"

As the title of this review states, this is by far the number 1 holiday cottage we've stayed in throughout Scotland. Julie and John are most welcoming hosts and have provided us with numerous fantastic holidays in this wonderful Cairngorm location. Situated close to Kingussie and it's local amenities, plus only a stones throw further to Aviemore and the Cairngorm ski resort, the cottage is perfect for couples or family holidays. We have never gone wanting for things to do and find the book of suggested places to visit a first read upon arrival. All in all, the cottage has everything; location, peace and quiet, great hosts, comfort, cleanliness and quality with many items refreshed before they become tired or too well used. We will be back time and time again as we have before and cannot recommend this cottage highly enough. Thanks, Rob

"Excellent, with wonderful hosts."

Everything about this ppropety is superb and the hosts do everything possible to make your stay as enjoyable as it could be. they also supply fruit and veg out of their own garden. This is one of the best places we have ever stayed during many years of self catering holidays and would recommend it without hesitation.

"Spotless, comfortable accomodation with fabulous surroundings and wonderful hosts - a wonderful stress release!!"

Have been to this destination nine times (at least) at various times of the year. Whatever the weather the hosts are warm, the air is fresh and it's a great place to re-charge the batteries whether you want an action break, scenery, walks or whatever - there are so many activities on the doorstep. And the great thing about it is the fact that the accomodation is spot-on and never varies!!! Julie and John take care of everything themselves and any queries or advice they are just down the driveway - and nothing is too much trouble for them. We are back again in a few months time - can't wait - it's like homee from home but better!!

"Another Fantastic Week"

This is the third time we have stayed at one of the cottages, having first stayed at the outstanding B&B on the same site. The cottages are wonderfully equipped and fitted out, often with beautiful oak fittings made by John (one of the owners) . It is great to arrive to find a freshly baked loaf of bread and a bottle of wine waiting. For our family of 4 it was perfect with table tennis at night (for two of us) after a day out and often a meal with fresh vegetables or salad provided from the owners vegetable patch. Great walks and mountain bike rides from the doorstep (room to keep bikes in the table tennis garage) and many more activities and attractions just a short car journey away. We could not recommend this highly enough.
