Highland Joy

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at The Larches and our experience, from our very first contact with Eimear months before, has been very positive. This was a hassle-free holiday in a beautiful location with loads of walks nearby. Aviemore is only 15 mins away. The kids had a great time in the garden bouncing the evenings away on the trampoline. The house has loads of room and is a house you feel you can 'live' in as it's not pristine - which we liked. From the conservatory we saw crossbills, woodpeckers, lapwing, geese and deer and a whole lot more. Would definitely come back to The Larches.

A beautiful traditional house in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in The Larches. Our children loved the playhouse and trampoline in the garden. The house was clean and cosy. The wood burning stoves were wonderful in the evenings. We would definitely recommend The Larches to our family and friends.

Really Lovely House to Rent

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit here didn't disappoint. Lovely house; spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Great views from the 'conservatory lounge' where we spent much time communing with the wood burner! Not much more to say really, highly recommended.
