    Plenty to do, whether exploring by road, bike or by foot. Owners very friendly, and on hand next door if needed. The cottage was generally well maintained and very comfortable albeit could do with some modernisation with some of the furniture tired. It was generally clean throughout albeit the cooker hood could do with some attention. The heating oil ran out after a couple of days but the owner very quickly tried to deal with this with additional oil and was very apologetic. This didn’t affect us as we had the open fire in the evening and hot water via the immersion heater.

    The only improvement (as others have also said) would be the TV could do with replacing and a working DVD player would be useful, though we got around the latter using the PS2 that was there. The mattress was very hard, though this is a personal choice, some may like it like that but we ended up buying a mattress topper to make it more comfortable.

    Archie came and introduced himself just after we arrived and told us they were just across the field if we needed anything but didn't disturb us in anyway.The farm has an honesty box selling fresh free range eggs etc. We can vouch for them being free range as we watched the chickens running around the field every morning. The views are amazing in all directions and from every window. It's so peaceful and quiet, you would never guess it's only 10 mins from A9, so easy to get around. 15mins to Newtonmore. 20mins to Kingussie. We drove to Kingussie one morning and ended up driving a wee bit more and a wee bit more because of the wonderful scenery until we found ourselves in Fort William. Didn't mean to do that. Aviemore is just a short drive North. Dalwhinnie a short drive south. Woke every morning to the sound of swifts and sheep. Could have spent the day being entertained by the antics of the swifts. Lots of really nice coffee shops with fresh home baking.

  • "The bit I most liked was, when you opened the curtains in the morning, the sheep and lambs were standing at the fence no more 15 to 20 feet from the window, as a city person this was a lovely experience."

    A lovely holiday in a beautiful country setting on the wners farm. A big spacious cottage and very thoughtful owners.

    Fantastic for people who want to 'get away from it all'. The wildlife in the garden is a real pleasure to see.

  • "The cottage was to a very high standard and what we expected of a high quality rental."

    It was surrounded by stunning countryside and it also helped that the weather was very good for this part of Scotland in September. The property owners were very nice and could not be more helpful especially when the upstairs lights fused on the night that Scotland beat France 1 - 0 at football!

  • "I was absolutely amazed by this cottage, it had everything that you wanted, and I mean everything."

    Kitchen was very big and well equipped, wood for the fire and coal if you needed it, but luckily the weather was very good to us. Loved walking down by the river and seeing the deer. The scenery was brilliant. Cottage based in a very good position for Fort William and Inverness where we went dolphin watching at Chanary Point on the Moray Firth. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to get away from it all.

    One of the best I have ever been in. It is well equipped with many thoughtful details, like the bird feeder on the fence and binoculars for watching the birds and wildlife.
