  • "Not only was the cottage comfortable and cosy, we have never stayed in such a well-equipped self-catering property!"

    Usually there's no tin opener, tongs, oven gloves etc but there was everything you could imagine! Even scales and a pastry brush! Loved it! The coffee machine was loved by us too. We arrived to a lovely welcome of treats left out for us. The kids were delighted! Everything was spotless and recently decorated to a high standard. The 4 cosy blankets in the living room were a thoughtful addition aswell as the footstool full of books and dvds, boardgames and wordsearch and colouring book. It was great that we could sign into our own Netflix etc. I used the washing machine a few times and was happy to discover a decent iron and ironing board which I rarely find in self catering places. The drying rack was a good one too. Even the towels were perfect. Huge and 2 each. Lovely big shower in downstairs showerroom and big bath in bathroom upstairs. The toiletries dispensers on the walls were brilliant! I want them at home! Susan, the owner could not have been more helpful. She popped round one day to give us some tennis racquets and balls for in the garden. The kids were loving playing with those aswell as the swingball, velcro bats and the quoits set. So friendly and welcoming. The perfect host! We have already recommended the cottage to lots of friends and will not hesitate to return.

  • "The cottage was very comfortable, and clearly a lot of thought has gone into its renovation and decoration."

    It had all the facilities we could want, including a well-equipped kitchen, good wi-fi and Sky TV. We really appreciated the welcome gifts from our hosts too! It is very well placed for exploring the whole Cairngorm area and looking for wildlife. We enjoyed discovering the many local walking trails - the Speyside Way is literally at the end of the garden. It was perfect for a peaceful but luxurious holiday.

  • "I would highly recommend Ulla Dhu, the cottage was spotlessly clean well decorated and very well equipped."

    Although the cottage is on a farm it was wonderfully peaceful, just bird song! Perfectly situated for exploring the local area and all of the Cairngorms.

  • "We were absolutely delighted with Ulla Dhu cottage."

    It has been very tastefully decorated and had everything we needed (and more) for a comfortable stay. Our 4 & 5 year old daughters loved all the games that were in the house - it really was a home away from home and the perfect retreat in the beautiful Nethy Bridge.

    Many little considerate touches that make all the difference. Ideal location for balance of local and access to wider offering of Cairngorms/Aviemore area. A big thank you, yet again!
