The property

This whitewashed semi-detached cottage is situated next to the owner’s home in the centre of Tomintoul in the Cairngorms National Park.

Centrally located this cottage is ideal for a family or group of friends looking to tour this fantastic area.

This very well-presented cottage has parking to the rear and the entrance from here leads into a spacious porch area, perfect for kicking off those muddy boots and hanging up your coats after a day of exploring.

The open plan kitchen with dining area is well-equipped and there are two comfy chairs situated in this area around a warming woodburning stove to ensure the chef in the party can join in the plans for the next day’s adventures as they prepare a tasty treat.

Afterwards, relax in the cosy front sitting room where there is space for everyone in front of the warming open fire and watch your favourite film together.

From the sitting room a short slope leads to a delightful adult bunks room and a spacious modern shower room which may make it suitable for those who find stairs difficult.

Upstairs there are two further bedrooms, a double and a single.

The rear patio area is the perfect place to relax with a refreshing drink as you soak up the wonderful interrupted views of the surrounding countryside.

The centre of Tomintoul is a short stroll away and offers shops, a café and a hotel.

Located in the Cairngorms National Park there is a myriad of walking and cycling opportunities to enjoy.

Mountain biking enthusiasts will enjoy testing their skills at nearby Glenlivet, or try a spot of skiing in the winter months at The Lecht Ski Centre, or a spot of fishing on the nearby River Avon.

Visit the popular villages of Ballater and Braemar or follow the Malt Whisky Trail and maybe purchase a wee dram to be enjoyed later around the fire.

Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy a visit to nearby Aviemore where snowsports can be enjoyed in the winter months, as well as host of summer activities for all the family.

There really is something for everyone from this well-located cottage.
