    “Great House, Great Location”

    We booked this cottage for a week with the two of us and 4 kids. ...

    We booked this cottage for a week with the two of us and 4 kids. The drive up was spectacular, when we arrived the house was ready for us and perfectly clean, the only thing that wasn't working was the wifi as BT were having issues in the area that week, these things happen. I managed to get a 3G signal in one of the bedrooms. The house was spacious and the kitchen well stocked with all you need to prepare meals for all 6 of us. A good selection of DVDs, Books and games were available. Nearby up the road was an adventure playground with a zip line that the kids really enjoyed and I noticed an EV charge point just before it for any EV drivers! Tomintoul is a small town/large village and has a few shops mainly geared to tourists, a small shop and a chip shop van that comes every now and then. It has a whiskey shop too. The location is perfect for a little exploration of the Highlands, the nearest petrol station is a good 20 min drive so make sure you fill up when you can. We visited Inverness, Aviemore, the Black Isle and surrounding area the kids also enjoyed Landmark outdoor adventure park. All in all it was a great cottage in a great location and I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking to get away in the Highlands.

The property

This charming and characterful former church hall in Tomintoul provides a perfect base for guests to explore the stunning Cairngorms National Park.

Situated in a very popular village, this all ground floor cottage is surrounded by miles and miles of open countryside, yet is ideally situated close to a friendly local store and village pub.

There are four stylish bedrooms, three of which all have en-suite facilities, along with a family shower room.

The main living area has a high beamed ceiling, a beautifully preserved wooden floor and a large multi-fuel stove.

At one end of this room is an impressive dining table where meals can be enjoyed together before guests can move to the leather sofas that surround the stove and simply relax by the glow of the fire.

Double doors lead from the living area into a large and well-equipped kitchen, and on the other side of the room are French doors giving access to a private south facing patio.

From Tomintoul village, easy access can be gained to many parts of the beautiful highlands of Scotland, with a trip into Royal Deeside visiting the famous villages of Braemar and Ballater making a wonderful day out.

Pick up the Malt Whisky Trail and visit some of the many distilleries along the route, or for the more active, head to the hills, lochs and forests to simply soak up the fabulous scenery and wildlife that the area has to offer.

A fabulous holiday cottage and a perfect holiday base.
