    Spent a lot of time watching the birds on the feeders outside the kitchen window. Quite a few different species and even got a red squirrel on morning of departure. Also seen deer in the fields and buzzards (I think) above the treeline behind the cottage. Hosts were friendly and helpful and I would highly recommend this cottage. Certainly planning on returning in the future.

The property

Grantown-on-Spey 3.7 miles.

This is a charming, self-contained, west wing of a traditional farmhouse on a working farm dating from the late 18th century, with the owners living in the adjacent wing, private from each other with shared access to the garden, and is close to Grantown-on-Spey, in the Cairngorms National Park, Scotland.

This delightful cottage is ideal for a family or group of friends who will love the space and comfort that the farmhouse has to offer, and its central location in the desirable Cairngorms National Park.

A private gravel driveway leads up to the house and spacious parking area and from its elevated position, guests will appreciate the far-reaching views from most of the windows, across the stunning open countryside to the surrounding mountains.

The sitting room is a bright comfortable area for relaxation, and overlooks the neat lawned garden whilst the kitchen with a dining area is situated to the rear of the property and is very well-equipped and homely.

There are three very comfortable bedrooms, all with lovely views, and the large lawned front garden is a simply perfect spot for some alfresco dining, weather permitting!

As you can imagine, being surrounded by such fabulous scenery, the area is a haven for wildlife and very close by is the RSPB Osprey Centre at Loch Garten, which is a wonderful visitor experience for all ages.

The area really has something for everyone, whether it?s on the mountains, on the water or on the land and are all close by.

This cosy cottage is a wonderful base from which to explore this glorious part of Scotland.
