Previous visitors' comments about Creag-na-Sanais:
The property was extremely spacious and well appointed, spotlessly clean and well laid out. The owner made us very welcome and we were entranced by the local wildlife - especially a pair of red legged grouse who visited the garden on most days! The views from the property were stunning and the weather even obliged us by adding snow to the surrounding hilltops.

Warm and comfortable cottage to come back to after a day hillwalking.
Mr Seel, Bradford, January 2013
The location was perfect for our needs. I must comment on how impressed we were with the accommodation and its owners and would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.
Mrs Hopps, Bishop Auckland, December 2012
Excellent cottage with very good views. A good location for visiting the Cairngorm national park. This was our second visit and we hope to return.
