  • "I wouldn't necessarily recommend Sykes hence the initial score of five, However, this was a very comfortable and pleasant cottage to stay in."

    The bedrooms were a reasonable size and having three bathrooms was great. The sitting room/conservatory was a particularly enjoyable room.The ceilings are low but that only affected the two of us who are over 6ft. The kitchen is a little cramped but perfectly usable. A bigger fridge would be nice but there is a separate freezer which helps. WiFi was good and worked well throughout the house. The owners were very friendly, good people who we met at the changeover. Altogether a very happy stay.

  • "The owners George and Anne were very welcoming, helpful and informative."

    Bairgorm Croft was very comfortable and clean. It had everything we needed for a great holiday. Our group consisted of 4 adults, 2 children and a dog and the cottage was big enough to accommodate us comfortably. The views were stunning, we even saw a red deer whilst stood in the garden.

  • "Your description of cosy really means small."

    Very good cottage for us two but would be somewhat crowded if all 6 bed spaces were occupied. Description should mention the low ceiling (inevitable with a 1760's croft conversion). We are not tall, people over 6 feet would struggle with the low ceilings. Very well equipped and a superb peaceful location and very welcoming owners. Excellent bird feeders in garden viewed from very small sitting room with good supplies of bird food available. Good car parking space. Perfect cottage for bird watchers.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Blairgorm Croft, the cottage was spotlessly clean, warm, very comfortable and very well equipped."

    The location is peaceful and quiet and provides an ideal location for visiting the many local attractions and the many walks nearby, an added bonus was a large forest just across the stream at the bottom of the garden, which gave an ideal walk for our two dogs in the early morning. Our only complaint is that the property description says that there is an enclosed garden which is incorrect, there is a large garden which is enclosed on two sides but open at the front and to the stream at the rear.

  • "We had a marvellous time staying at Blairgorm croft as our base for visiting the highland wildlife park, landmark, Spey Bay, the local lochs and the reindeer centre."

    The bird life at the croft was amazing and we enjoyed seeing the woodpecker, collared doves, pheasant, and various smaller birds who were regular visitors to the bird feeders. A well equipped and most comfortable place to stay. We liked it so much that we have booked to return next year.

  • "Location of cottage brilliant to visit cairngorm bird and wildlife sites."

    We also visited the Scottish Wildlife Park 45 mins and Channoray Point on the Murray Firth to take in the Forth resident dolphins feeding on the salmon 40 to 50 meters from the shore what a site. Check tide times and go on the incoming 1-2 hours before high tide. If you get up 5-6am red and fallow deer can be spotted near to the cottage and in the wood across the stream below the cottage car park. Enjoy your break as we did.

  • "Blairgorm Croft is in an ideal position for visiting so many places - Highland Wildlife Park, Osprey Centre, Aviemore, Loch Morlich, Cairngorm, Whisky distilleries, Strathspey Railway, Tomintoul, Nairn beach and so many other places."

    The setting is peaceful and relaxed with everything you need in the house and beautiful areas to sit outside and enjoy the wildlife and scenery. Nearby villages and scenery are all different and each has a different history. Food was excellent for all dietary requirements in a wide selection of places to eat. An ideal place for a holiday whatever the weather or ages of holiday makers. Lots to see and do.
