Didn’t feel the property was quite ready

  • 3 of 5

Following a 10+hour drive we were delighted to find a very comfortable, clean bed and warm cottage. However we were disappointed at the clear evidence that a mouse was in residence; the dining chair legs were leaving the seats and very unstable; there was no information for the operation of the domestic appliances or local tourist and emergency information; and no provision to hang any coats. The cottage had some lovely touches with linen and art work and is in a lovely quiet position but the bathroom and kitchen areas hadn’t been finished off which clearly allowed the mice free access. Just didn’t seem ready for rental which wouldn’t take much to rectify.

A very nice wee place in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

A high quality facility in a great location. We enjoyed our stay. One wee comment would be that there could have been some info on the facilities i.e. How to operate the heating, oven etc, and what the local activities are.

Cozy comfortable base for a lovely hiking weekend

  • 5 of 5

We booked last minute to take advantage of a late September dry spell to get some hiking in in Cairngorm. Booking was quick and easy, queries rapidly dealt with and the place was comfortable, cozy and clean.
