My family and I travelled from Australia to stay at Holly tree lodge and what can I say. This lodge felt so warm and homely ( even in winter ). Fully equipped with everything and the location was amazing. On the doorstep to the Cairngorms and so many locations no more than a 2 hour drive, we have made memories to cherish and can't wait to return.

As soon as we arrived, there was a basket of wine, chocolates and essentials, the Christmas lights were on and the hot tub was heating up - ready for us to use. It is in a great area and so peaceful to be away from all the noise. The house is spotless, warm and cosy - even when we arrived in the cold December weather. Lisa and the staff are very helpful and just a phone call away for help. Will definitely be back!

Beautiful Log burning stove, and stunning surrounding visuals. Very peaceful due to its remote location, comfy bed, and friendly owners nearby in case any issues are encountered.
