"You have an absolutely fabulous property, I couldn't find any fault with anything even the weather didn't spoil our holiday, All fixtures and fittings were well-maintained inside and out 10/10."
"Staying at Otakaro in Tomintoul was fantastic, one of the best properties we have stayed in over the years, we couldn't have asked for a better place for our week in the Cairngorms and Highlands."
Incredibly clean and inviting to come back each day after a long trek up the mountains. Great base for exploring, we climbed Ben Nevis and Ben Macdui, drove to Loch Ness and Cullen on the coast. To top it off we drove to Balmoral Castle on the way home and afterwards King Charles was driving behind us through the mountains! Unforgettable memories made in a beautiful place in Scotland. Thanks Otakaro, we didn't want to leave but we will be back next year.
"Fantastic cottage in a lovely location with excellent views of the valley and the 'dark sky'!"
The property was spotlessly clean, well equipped and very comfortable, and communication with the owners was excellent.

When sleep calls, retire to one of three plush bedrooms, all tastefully-decorated and perfect for unwinding in.
Awaken to a refreshing shower before enjoying a coffee in the southeast facing patio with decking and furniture.
A short walk into Tomintoul Square will provide you with a delightful choice of shopping and information - check out the Discovery Centre then maybe enjoy a dram and some pub grub at the Richmond Arms.
At the top of the village across from the Glenlivet Estate offices is one of the best adventure playgrounds suitable for all ages including the young at heart!.
Grantown-On-Spey is a short drive away and is home to the Grantown Museum, ideal for history buffs, and nearby Nethy Bridge has a lovely golf course.
The acclaimed Glenlivet bike trails are right on the doorstep an even have E-bikes for hire, with an awesome cafe for coffee and cake afterwards.
Why not head up to the Moray coast for a day out where you can spot dolphins and enjoy gorgeous beaches, quiet coves or soaring cliffs.
If it’s mountains you’re after Braemar and Aviemore are an easy drive away, or if you want to leave the car behind, put your boots on at Otakaro and head up Glen Avon into the heart of the Cairngorms.
