Why Caroline Hayes chose Aviemore and the Cairngorms

It's unique location away from it all, surrounded by peace and stunning views. Yet close to the wealth of activities Speyside has to offer.

What makes this house unique

Comfortable, spacious and well maintained.

Beautiful house in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful well equipped and maintained house ideal for a large family get together. The views from the conservatory are amazing and we spent a lot of time around the large dining table. The wood burner stove makes the other living area very cosy.

The owner Caroline could not have been more helpful even welcoming us with some freshly made shortbread.

We were a mixed family group and there were walks suitable for everyone. We also all enjoyed watching the gliders at the local gliding club.

We would definitely recommend March house and hope to go back ourselves.

March House is a lovely place for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

the house is set in a lovely quiet part of Feshiebridge, it is close to all the local attractions and walks nearby, we were a party of 13 and we all enjoyed the house and the garden, the children especially liked getting the logs for the fire with the wheelbarrow. what a wonderful week. the house had everything we could need and more, and Caroline was very welcoming and even supplied us with homemade shortbread and some locally foraged mushrooms. Thanks from the Shetland gang!!

Great property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

A group of 8 friends stayed here for 4 nights in May for our annual "lads" walking holiday.

The property was ideal for our needs with 4 en-suite bedrooms - a mix of doubles and twins - and a further 2 bedrooms that shared a bathroom. There's a beautiful conservatory (with massive dining table), separate lounge with log fire and an exceptionally well equipped kitchen. Everything was spotlessly clean and well maintained.

We used March House (officially in Feshiebridge) as a base to be near Aviemore for a mix of low and high level walks with a couple of Munros thrown in. After a day in the hills, having our own place to sit, chat and relax (and have a few drinks) of an evening was ideal.

The weather was kind to us and the walk to the nearest pub (Loch Insh Watersports Centre) built up a nice thirst on the couple of days we chose to go there. Ideally, at the end of a long day, the walk could have been shorter - but it's probably unrealistic to expect the centre to relocate just to accommodate us! We did eat there on one evening and everyone commented on the friendly staff - not to mention the good food and beer.

Of course, with Aviemore nearby there are lots of options to eat out and we had an exceptionally good Indian meal on one evening and then used a local taxi service to return. That day also contained a tour of Cairngorm Brewery which is worth adding to the itinerary for those with an interest in beer (or who just want a less challenging day out).

There are far too many attractions in and around Aviemore to list. However, it's probably worth a reminder that the option exists to walk up to the Cairngorm massif from Coire Cas car park and then use the funicular to return down. As the years advance, walking downhill seems to become more challenging than going up!

Finally, a special word to the property owner Caroline. She lives next door and couldn't have been friendlier and more helpful without being in any way obtrusive.

Overall, I would highly recommend March House as a base for the area. It's a big property so ideal for a (very) large family or groups of friends. We loved it and I suspect our annual trip will see us return in the future.

Fabulous getaway at Feshiebridge

  • 5 of 5

Right from the welcoming warmth of the wood burner which had obviously been lit for some time everything felt good about March House. It is set in beautiful surroundings

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday in this lovely house. There was 14 of us and we found the house to be of a great size and with great facilities. The table in the conservatory was able to accommodate us all as were all the settees in the living room. We managed to create lots of home cooked meals in the kitchen which was very well equipped. All the bathrooms were newly renovated and were very modern looking.

The house may be a bit far out for some, being about 15 minutes drive from Aviemore and about 30 minutes drive from the ski slopes in the Cairngorm mountain, but for us it was perfect. It was great to see lots of snow and lots of birds and red squirrels. Thank you Caroline.

  • 4 of 5

Just left this wonderful accomodation yesterday and wish we was still there, all 7 of us was staying in a very comfortable spacious room each all with our own bathrooms, no trouble with hot water issues etc.

Kitchen is fully equipped and was lovely to have a meal sitting in the conservatory, nice evenings enjoying the chat and relaxing around the warmth of the wood burning stove.

If it's a tranquil setting you are after to get away from city life then this is the place to be, just stunning and so quiet...bliss
