  • "We had a brilliant week in Burnside House over the New Year period."

    It's a fantastic house in a great location, and the showers were a particular highlight! Easy access to lots of walks in the woods behind, and close enough to walk into Aviemore. Aviemore and the surrounding areas have so much to offer that we only wish we could have stayed longer.

    Has everything you need including a fenced in garden for the dog and a wonderful wood out the back to walk him. Can't recommend it enough!!

  • "House is in a great location and has everything that you need."

    We had a problem with getting normal channels on the TV and we contacted the owners by phone for assistance. We left a message asking for advice but no one replied. This is the second time we have stayed here. The house is big enough to accomodate our party of 5 plus the dog. The garden is secure and fenced which is perfect for young children and dogs. Beautiful area of the world to explore.

    Pamela I am so sorry to hear this. I will take this up with the maintenance people. There has been a problem with Sky since the storms. It is very annoying that this wasn’t fixed when you were there. I can only apologise. Isla Property Owner

    The beds are comfortable and felt very homely. The town / village is near by 3/4 mins in car and walking approx 15/20 mins. The garden is secure for dogs and also has a kennel “should you need” it and also a shed to put your bikes in. If I’m honest this property is exceptional!

    It was our 5th visit to Aviemore but first time staying at Burnside - we will definitely book again. Can't fault this house at all. It was spotless on arrival, had everything you need, comfy couches and beds, fenced in back garden, quiet area, plenty of walks nearby (our dog loved it!) and was close enough to town if you wanted to pop into shops/restaurants etc. Spoke to the owner briefly re. a question with the fire - she was super friendly and approachable. I would not hesitate booking this house again :)

    Thanks Melanie. So glad you had a lovely holiday. Property Owner

  • "Nice house, clean with good amenities (and a big fridge!"

    ) but missing hot tub from original listing which is why we picked it above another house available when choosing. This house is a new build set in a housing estate and though pleasant enough, next door have some building works going on at the bottom of their garden and so there is hammering etc from 8.30am onwards. At the moment I am regretting this choice over a more isolated cottage which is our usual pick.

  • "Something tripped out some of the power sockets and ligths on our last evening."

    I had no access to the fuse box to resolve the issue. If this occurred mid week it would have been quite annoying as i wouldn't have been able to resolve it myself. The garage is not mentioned in the listing so I didn't except access but it was unclear how big and secure the outdoor shed is. The shed has enough space for around 4 bikes and is as secure as any wooden shed can be.

  • "The property is beautiful, the beds were ultra comfy and the facilities excellent."

    Just 2 small points that are a bit of a negative... 1. We booked the property because we wanted a hot tub then it was removed. We understand that electricity costs are at an all time high but it was a slight disappointment. 2. We had no dishwasher for the week and the fuse box tripped several times over the week. At one point we had no electricity in the kitchen for 2 hours in the middle of cooking a meal.

    Hi Anita this is the first time I have heard this.I will talk to our maintenance company. It sounds like the problem might be the dish washer. I will see what they are saying. I appreciate the comments on the hot tub and I totally understand. The rising costs was the key reason we took it out but I also felt it was wrong to be heating water during an energy crisis. I will investigate the dishwasher. Thanks for the feedback. We can only get better with your feedback - negative as well as positive. Property Owner

    Well stocked kitchen, lovely bedding and super-cosy; wood burning stove not needed for heat but always great for winter nights … especially after a hot tub soak. We didn’t have our dog on this trip but impressive consideration to dog friendly garden etc. if there is a downside, you are a good distance from the centre but the quiet, countryside feel makes up for that! Highly recommend staying at Burnside.

  • "Very good accommodation."

    Good kitchen with plenty of appliances and I appreciated the gesture of the bottle of wine left for me . Very kind .Only comment I would make is, that I would like to have recycled food waste and paper etc. but there was no specific bins for this like I have at home. The blue bins that were there were full and overflowing and I actually tidied up discarded rubbish left around the bins after they were emptied on bin collection day. It looks as if the bins hadn't been emptied the week before and people had just left cardboard boxes and other stuff lying beside them. I had a very good holiday and the area was really quiet and peaceful despite most of the surrounding houses being occupied. I would recommend Burnside House.

The property

Located on the North West edge of the Cairngorms National Park, in the town of Aviemore, is this charming detached cottage, Burnside House.

This property is wonderfully placed in the Scottish Highlands and is less than an hour's drive away from the bustling city of Inverness, a real hot spot for tourists and locals alike.

Ideal for pet lovers as there's a dog kennel with the house, you can bring up to two well-behaved dogs with you to explore the natural beauty surrounding the property, particularly its close proximity to a nearby mountain stream.

Hang your coats on the hooks by the front door and be welcomed into a spacious hallway, leading off towards a sitting area.

Look forward to unwinding in the bright and airy living space with plush leather sofas for sinking into with a glass of wine in hand and benefitting from that essential woodburning stove adding to the homely effect of the space.

Walk through to the open-plan kitchen/diner with all the necessary appliances needed to cook up some delicious meals, and the benefit of a dishwasher so you don't have to wash up yourself.

Choose to gather at the dining table with your meals and break open a bottle of champagne to celebrate a wonderful holiday break.

The first floor comes with the choice of a king-size, double and twin bedroom, each presenting a range of modern furnishings for storing your personal belongings.

All bedrooms have their own TVs for those early morning shows without having to leave the comfort of the covers, and the master bedroom has its own en-suite shower room.

The family bathroom benefits from an elegant bath and shower cubicle so you can choose how best to prepare for your day.

From the living room, there are French doors which open out to a stunning enclosed garden, equipped with lawn and patio areas for dining alfresco during the summer months with the provided charcoal barbecue.

The town of Aviemore is rich with pubs and restaurants if you don't fancy cooking one evening, whilst also offering a choice of shops and supermarkets for all of your amenities.

Discover a range of trails for walking or cycling on Craigellachie Hill and tour the length of its nature reserve and spot an abundance of wildlife along the way.

Choose to explore places such as Loch Morlich, Loch an Eilean and the Green Loch for a mixture of historical castles, white sandy beaches and water sporting opportunities; something to suit all types of guests.

Further afield is the charming city of Inverness, which comes with a wide-range of tourist attractions such as the riverside Inverness Castle, the Victorian Inverness Museum and Art Gallery and so much more.

Burnside House is the ultimate attraction for families seeking to explore this wonderful part of the Scottish Highlands.
