We had a fabulous time here. Wonderful views, accommodation and owners. Would love to come back. Without leaving the house, we enjoyed the cosy log fire, relaxing hot tub and bird watching was varied and exciting.

Mr Wynne, Stone, February 2014

The atmosphere of the property was unique and unlike any previous cottages I have stayed at. The views were excellent, as were the surroundings. The hot tub was a welcome addition too! Thanks for a great stay.

Miss Knight, Cupar, February 2014

Katchana was everything we were hoping for. Nestled away from the hustle and bustle with awesome views of the snow covered peaks and over a beautiful loch. The owner of the property was easily accessible via phone and was very helpful during a wind storm where we lost power. It is close to Aviemore and the Cairngorms. A scottish friend of ours who visited us whilst we were there was so impressed by the property and its location that he will be booking it for family. The photographs are accurate of the property in the advertising. We loved it and think of our stay at Katchana as the highlight of our month long UK stay.

Mrs Munro, Glen Innes, December 2013

The bungalow was large and would be lovely to take my grandchildren to. The hot tub was a real treat and very relaxing, I loved every minute in it.
