Ate out a few nights in the little village and found the local people to be so friendly and welcoming.

    Loved the little touches like providing a selection of DVDs, games and books, milk, shortbread and whisky left for us on arrival. Lovely large secure garden for the dog to run around in. Ate out a few nights in the little village and found the local people to be so friendly and welcoming. The Superkingsize bed was possibly the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in, gorgeous after a long day walking in the cairngorms. The cottage had all the amenities you needed, I think the only thing it didn’t have was a dishwasher which would have come in handy, but that didn’t take away from the fact that we would definitely stay again and highly recommend.

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?
