Lovely spacious living area. Boat of Garton is a lovely gentle place to stay, with a network of walks from the chalet. It is beautiful there. In addition we found it perfectly located for exploring Abernathy Forest, Aviemore, Loch Morlich, Cairn Gorman, and within travelling distance of Onverness, the Great Glen, etc. We'll be coming back! PS Helen and Ron were very helpful and friendly - always there if we'd needed them.

It has all the kitchen appliances you need, including dishwasher and washing machine, and two bathrooms. The bed linen and towels help towards a comfy stay. The surrounding area has all the facilities you need plus opportunities for lovely walks and more ambitious hiking up the local "Munros". You can visit Pitlochry, take a boat out Loch Faskally and complete a round on the excellent putting course. Thoroughly recommended!
