  • "A fantastic two person cottage, well appointed, and lovely and warm."

    The wildlife around the cottage was amazing we loved watching the red squirrel enjoy their breakfast every day and the woodpecker taking ownership of the bird feeder.

    Thank you for your review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay, and found both the chalet and our local wildlife so enjoyable. I regret, we have yet to teach the woodpeckers how to share! :-) Kevin and Sharon Property Owner

  • "A wonderful haven of tranquility & wildlife in the forest."

    It restores the soul. There are wonderful walks from the door- Uath lochans are close by with amazing wildlife & scenery. I was entranced by the reflection of falling snow on the mirror calm lochan. Red squirrels visit daily, roe deer seen & many birds on the feeders were a source of delight. The owners have gone to alot of trouble to make you feel welcome & comfortable in the property. Spotlessly clean & well maintained. I struggled to park my hire car in the parking bay but Kevin suggested an alternative to spare my blushes!

    Thank you for your lovely comments. We're so glad you enjoyed your time with us, and were able to see so much wildlife and get to enjoy some of our local walks. Not all of our guests get to see the snow falling on the Lochans; but, to be honest, they look lovely in any weather! As for the car parking - one of the benefits of not having close neighbours is no-one to complain over where cars are parked. :-) We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

    The care and attention put in by owner is second to none. Just one irritation; didn't see aurora : my bad timing so I'll be back next winter.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. As for the aurora, we think you are asking too much. After all, we arranged for snow on Christmas day, a clear blue sky boxing day, a couple of crisps morning frost, and a sample of 'what could have been' with a stormy night and some fallen trees! Next time, we'll concentrate on the northern lights for you. ;-) Property Owner

  • "We spent a lovely week at this property."

    The owners were very helpful during the stay and had gone to a lot of trouble to decorate the property with Christmas in mind; lots of lovely touches. The property has everything you need for a self-catering week away, as suggested by previous reviews. Although the weather was not particularly good, there is plenty to do in the area. We had booked specifically to see snow on the high tops, and were not disappointed. The chalet was warm and comfortable despite the chill and rain/sleet outside. We shall definitely return in future - the best recommendation of all. Thank you for a lovely break.

    We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed the stay with us, despite the less than favourable weather we provided. And glad the 'Christmassy' feel worked for you. The good thing about the Scottish highlands is, no matter the season, there is always something glorious to see. That said, next visit, we'll aim to add a little more Sun into your schedule!

  • "We had a wonderful week at Torbreck Chalet."

    I had read all the great reviews and had high hopes - we weren’t disappointed. One of the best self catering places we have stayed in, and we’ve been lucky to stay in many over the years. The owners are friendly and welcoming, and as others have said, there if needed, but never intrusive. The chalet was clean, well equipped, super warm, dog friendly, with treats, blanket, towel etc provided for our little dog too. We cooked in the chalet most days (well equipped kitchen and a dishwasher) and we spent a lot of time in the warm cosy lounge resting and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. We saw many bird species, a gorgeous red squirrel outside the kitchen window each morning and we even spied the Pine Marten too. There are lots of lovely walks straight from the chalet door, it is so peaceful and calming. We were very sad to leave, as was our little dog, but we plan to return again and explore more of the area and enjoy the chalet once again. A truly memorable and relaxing break and we would highly recommend this accommodation and area to anyone.

    It's lovely to hear that you enjoyed your stay so much, and we thank you for this review. We can't take any credit for the beautiful natural surroundings that we are fortunate enough to live in; but we're glad we did our bit to enhance your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Property Owner

  • "What a great chalet in the most beautiful setting."

    After a warm welcome from Kevin, we entered Torbrek Chalet and found it to be clean, tidy and well equipped. The property is in the perfect setting with easy access to paths in and around the Utah Lochans and Glen Feshie. We enjoyed daily walks, long trail runs and bikes rides, most of which were done directly from the chalet door. It was a joy to watch the red squirrels, woodpeckers and various other birds feeding directly outside the chalet. We made good use of the local Loch Insh to paddle board, sail and eat. A must visit is The Old Post Office cafe in Kincraig; the food was amazing and Ann and her staff are wonderful-this is a short three mile walk (one way) from Torbrek. Torbrek Chalet was super comfortable and had all the facilities we needed. The WIFI (for those interested) was really quick and supported multiple devices. The heating was so efficient and made the chalet warm and welcoming. Thank you Kevin and Sharon for a great stay. We have already booked our next visit with you. Many thanks, Jon, Emma and Ayla

    We're glad you all had such a wonderful time last week, and enjoyed both Torbreck Chalet and the local environs. We'll aim for a little more sun, but just as much fun, for your next visit.

    The chalet is perfect: warm, cosy and spotlessly clean. The owners include some welcome supplies for dogs as well as humans which was really sweet and very much appreciated. Thankfully we had wonderful weather so didn't need the towels or blankets for our dog, but Tate very much enjoyed the dog treats! The bed and settee were extremely comfy and the kitchen is equipped with everything you could need. We actually stayed in and cooked every night and it was wonderful to relax in such a peaceful, quiet space every evening. The location is brilliant, you feel as though you are in the middle of the wilderness tucked away in the forest and we never saw people walking past on the walking/cycle route, but it's very close to amenities if you need to grab something from the shops or want to pop out for some food. There are lots of cafes and pubs recommended nearby in the very helpful guide in the chalet, which also includes lots of local info and manuals for things in the chalet (no faffing about trying to work out appliances)! We saw loads of lovely wildlife right outside the chalet including a roe deer. We enjoyed watching the bird feeders every day and seeing the antics of red sequirrels who were usually there most of the day, as well as countless species of birds, all right from our window. The chalet is very close to loads of beautiful walks. We only drove to go to a couple of places, and each time for less than 20 minutes. We visited Aviemore, Cairn Gorm, Loch Einich and Loch Insh reserve. We can only do 4 or 5 miles at a time (our dog only has 3 legs!) so if you want to walk further you can easily not have to drive at all while you're there. It was very quiet at all the places we visited and everywhere seems very clean and looked after too. By far our favourite walks were around the Uath Lochans right from the door of the chalet. The scenery is just stunning - in fact, of all the places we went that week, the lochans were the most beautiful spot for us to get engaged! We had the most perfect week and really can't recommend the chalet enough. We look forward to visiting again in the future :) thank you for such a brilliant holiday! Richard, Gracie and Tate xxx

    Congratulations on your engagement, Gracie and Richard. We don't think you can find a better spot for a proposal than on the cliffs over looking the Uath Lochans.

    Facilities within the chalet are comfortable and very clean. The chalet is well located within minutes of many circular walks in forest and loch settings. Perfect location for watching wildlife, walking and relaxing. Owners very friendly and accommodating. Would thoroughly recommend!

    Thank you for your review of Torbreck Chalet, Lindsay. We are delighted that you and Neil enjoyed your stay, and managed to get the maximum out of the picturesque scenery with its seasonal snow covering last week. We look forward to welcoming you back in a warmer season, so you can compare last week's whiteness with the green hues of a Scottish summer Regards Kevin & Sharon Property Owner

    Torbreck Chalet is ideally located for walking, cycling and exploring the Cairngorms, with miles and miles of tracks right outside the door. The chalet itself is very clean and well equipped. It's also warm and has a fabulous bath to soak in after a long day in the snow! We will definitely be back.

    Thank you for you comments. It was a pleasure to be your hosts. We are very pleased the chalet and its location met your expectations and allowed you to get the most out of your stay in the Cairngorms. We look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

    The location was fantastic. Being located in a forest, there were many walks available directly from the chalet, but was only a short drive from attractions in the area. The owners were extremely friendly and always available to assist. The feeders around the chalet kept us amused for hours, with red squirrels and a wide variety of birds being regular visitors.

    Thank you for your kind comments, Paul. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay, and were able to appreciate the benefits of our immediate vicinity, as well as some of the other amenities in this part of the Cairngorms National Park. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderfully relaxing time at Torbreck Chalet."

    The chalet is warm and cosy as well as spotlessly clean and really well-equipped. It's a short drive from Kingussie or Aviemore but feels as if it's in the middle of nowhere, which was just what we wanted. We loved watching the birds and red squirrels with our morning coffee before heading out for walks with our dog; there are stunning walks on the doorstep and a beautiful loch just 10 minutes stroll away. The owners live next door and while leaving us to our own devices most of the time, gave us some great suggestions for places to visit as well as eat and drink. We particularly loved The Old Bridge pub in Aviemore which is dog-friendly. We can't recommend Torbreck Chalet highly enough.

    We feel very privileged to live in this particular location, and are glad to hear that you found it to your liking as well. There really are so many places to enjoy the outdoors that it can be difficult to narrow it down to a handful of recommendations, and the same goes for local eateries. We are therefore very pleased to hear that our recommendations met the mark for you. Property Owner

    We couldn't have asked for a better trip. The chalet is even better than we ever imagined, secluded in the most amazing woods next to 3 amazing lochans (and Loch Insh), although only 15 minutes from Aviemore which has a good array of things to do (bars, shops, restaurants). The chalet is amazingly cosy with its fire & private balconies. Kevin & Sharon couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating, making us feel at home straight away. We'll definitely be back

    Owners friendly and helpful but unobtrusive. The chalet is generally well equipped, although missing a few kitchen items perhaps. The heated entrance porch was handy for drying boots and coats, also for cleaning dogs before entering the main room. Plenty of room for two people, although the bed is a standard double, not as large as we are used to.

    The chalet has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. Absolutely spotless upon arrival. It's set in a forest which is very quiet apart from the wildlife. The chalet is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the surroundings and many trails. We walked a different trail everyday and have some brilliant photos of the landscapes and wildlife. The red squirrels on a morning are a joy to watch. We saw roe deer on many of our walks, as well as one approaching the chalet. If you enjoy walking,hiking, and photography like us, then the chalet is set in the ideal place. Although we didn't see much of the owners. The few occasions we did, they where very polite and asked about our stay. We could not fault anything. Highly recommend.

  • "We had a wonderful week in the Torbreck Chalet."

    Everything has been well thought out and it was clean and comfortable. The owners were very friendly and welcoming, leaving us shortbread, iron bru and milk. The area is fabulous and we loved the fact we could walk out from the chalet to the Lochs and follow marked trails with amazing views. The chalet is well equipped for cooking meals, which was useful, as to go out to eat you have to drive (unless you like walking pre dinner and afterwards) and due to the current COVID situation places were booked up quite a long way in advance. However, we liked nothing better than sitting on the balcony with drinks before dinner and watching the squirrels, one evening a deer came wandering through too. So all in all, a great place to be. If you want to take part in any adventure activities do book in advance as it gets very busy. I did the Zip Trek adventure on the Alvie estate and it was great value for money. Thanks Kevin and Sharon for a great week.

The property

Found deep in the woodland of the Cairngorms National Park, Torbeck Chalet is a lovely first-floor chalet, next door to the owner's property, which can sleep up to four and is perfect for a romantic Scottish getaway or a rural family adventure.

The light décor, high vaulted ceilings and velux windows give the property a bright and spacious feel, beginning with the open-plan living space, which offers views of the surrounding forest and shared garden area, alongside an inviting gas stove-effect fire, where you can enjoy a tranquil afternoon watching the snow fall from the comfort of the couch, or watch TV as the fire crackles in the background.

When you’re feeling peckish, make use of the spacious kitchen area, or sit back whilst your other half cooks a romantic meal for two, with useful amenities and appliances at hand, like an electric oven, microwave, toaster, fridge with icebox and even a dishwasher, if you don't feel like doing any washing up.

Head to the bathroom and soak your troubles away as you unwind in the serene bath after a long day of exploring the Scottish Highlands, before retreating to the large, double size bedroom at the end of each day.

The bedroom is complete with plenty of storage space and balcony doors that open up onto your own balcony, showcasing enchanting woodland views that will take your breath away, alongside a staircase that leads down to the shared garden area, where you can admire the pretty surroundings or read a captivating book at one of the seating areas.

There's plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants to choose from just a short drive away in Kingussie and Aviemore town centres, or you could walk to the cafes in the nearby village of Kincraig.

The surrounding woodland is home to lots of wildlife to discover and has paths, trails and tracks right on the property’s doorstep, so you can take your pick of leisurely strolls or mountain hikes.

A short drive away is the Highland Wildlife Park, a perfect spot to go on habitat walks, visit the Highlands' wildlife and see endangered animals on your choice of driving or walking tours.

The town of Kingussie is the original capital of Badenoch and retains many historical sites along with the RSPB Insh Marches.

Meanwhile, Aviemore is the Gateway to the Cairngorms, with a full range of tourist facilities to help you get the most out of any trip to the mountain range.

Torbreck Chalet is an enchanting getaway providing the perfect mix of adventure and relaxation for people of all ages.
