  • "Our second stay at Bruach Gorm."

    A lovely place with a lovely host. It's spotlessly clean and comfortable. Warm and toasty in winter. Well equipped. The welcome pack is lovely. Fresh flowers in the living room too.

    The cottage was very well equipped and had everything and more than was needed. The cottage was cosy and the owner left a very nice welcome pack which was gratefully appreciated by us, even biscuits for the dog. We liked this cottage so much that we have booked for next year.

  • "Just returned from a week at Bruach Gorm and we had a great holiday."

    Weather was fantastic and the holiday home was a treat to come back to at night. It is a very comfortable and well laid out cottage. Furnishings were very tasteful too. The garden is fully enclosed so our dog was safe and secure. Close by to a nice wee pub (Craig’s Bar) and only a couple of minutes from the High Street. The owner had left a welcome pack which was much appreciated. Probably the best holiday home we have stayed at.

  • "Bruach Gorm is a lovely house easily able to accommodate a party of 6."

    There is plenty of space and the rooms are a good size, with the added benefit of a garden if the weather is nice. It is tucked down a lane and is lovely and quiet, yet a short walk to the shops etc. The house is well equipped with everything you need for your stay. If cooking and dining in, the kitchen is well equipped. This is a great base for exploring the area. The Aviemore area is a short drive away and you can easily easily travel to the coast east of Inverness, the Speyside area, or further afield. Grantown has a good array of shops, if not their are supermarkets in Aviemore.
