    Cosy But an Ben is a lovely cottage in the centre of Grantown-on-Spey. The cottage is squeaky clean and equipped with much thought and care. There is a media cupboard with plentiful children's toys and games, DVDs and books. There is even a wii! A lot of useful information on activities in the region is provided, along with maps for hiking tours in the immediate vicinity. The beds are very good, the linen and towels seem new. There were very nice toiletry articles (soap, shower gel, shampoo), and the beds were excellent. Everything was in excellent condition and great working order, and we were very happy to use the washing machine and dryer on several occasions. The garden across the courtyard was a particular bonus, and we loved the BBQ which was a perfect complement to our two weeks of Scottish sunshine. There is really nothing more we could have wished for. A big recommendation!
