    This is a gem of a cottage in a lovely Scottish village with all the local amenities you could wish for. There are beautiful walks from the door step and the village is a good base if you are wanting to explore further afield. The cottage itself is well equipt, cosy and warm. The log burner in the dining end of the kitchen provides a welcoming feel and the lounge is spacious and airy if you are holidaying as a larger family group. Large comfy beds and wonderful views from all the windows. Our only complaint would be the lack of attention to detail by the cleaner...on arrival we found frozen peas left in the freezer by a previous holiday maker and the filter coffee machine was full of used coffee grinds and a soggy filter paper. There were no firelighters or newspapers to light the log burner and the gas igniter clicker was empty so we couldn't light the fire until the next day when we went to the shop to buy matches and firelighters. There is a first aid kit in the kitchen which contains only a few wet wipes and a survival blanket. My advice would be to take your own first aid kit just in case. Also a couple of light bulbs need replacing and we couldn't find any spares. All in all a lovely cottage just needs a bit of extra care taking to make it perfect in every way.

The property

This charming detached cottage is located on the edge of the pretty Highland village of Tomintoul in the splendid Cairngorms National Park, boasting fantastic open views across fields to the nearby mountains and River Avon.

With a traditional stone build enhanced with modern decoration and an airy atmosphere, this Tomintoul cottage is perfect for families and friends looking for an idyllic location to explore the National Park and the wonderful Speyside area.

There are three comfortable bedrooms with a super king-size double on the ground floor, and the heart of this Cairngorms cottage is the spacious open plan kitchen with dining area.

A woodburner and comfortable seating complement this sociable spot, making it ideal for guests to gather and share their Cairngorms stories.

The separate sitting room has wonderful features and promotes a relaxing atmosphere with the vaulted ceiling, revealed stone walls and windows providing lovely open views.

At the front of this Tomintoul cottage is a neat patio area, and the rear garden has a picnic bench just in case you fancy some alfresco dining.

The friendly village of Tomintoul has good local services, and moments from your Cairngorms cottage you will find the village shops, cafe, restaurant and two good pubs.

Take a short stroll to the glorious River Avon; here you can drop a line into the waters that teem with salmon and trout.

The area is brimming with places to visit and things to do, and being in the heart of the Malt Whisky Trail, you are sure to experience some whisky sampling at one of the many traditional distilleries in this area.

At the end of a perfect day, what could be better than to return to the comfort of your lovely Tomintoul cottage?
