    “The cottage is very nice and has much to recommend it, but there are a number of issues which I wish to bring to your attention and which I would be grateful if you would pass on to the owner: 1.”

    There are no instructions in the cottage relating to the heating, cooker or microwave. 2. The lack of a washing machine in a self-catering cottage is not acceptable. In over 15 years of staying in self-catering accommodation in the Highlands I have never encountered this problem before. 3. The lack of wifi is a problem. Too many basic things in modern life (including your company’s means of communication) rely on access to the internet. Given the lack of DVD player, the option to stream films ...

    There are no instructions in the cottage relating to the heating, cooker or microwave. 2. The lack of a washing machine in a self-catering cottage is not acceptable. In over 15 years of staying in self-catering accommodation in the Highlands I have never encountered this problem before. 3. The lack of wifi is a problem. Too many basic things in modern life (including your company’s means of communication) rely on access to the internet. Given the lack of DVD player, the option to stream films would have been appreciated. Other properties to rent in the area have wifi so there is no excuse. 4. The kitchen is not very well equipped. There is no teapot, the set of wine glasses is incomplete (there is only one white wine glass) and the quality of many of the utensils is poor. The tin opener needs replacing as it is positively dangerous. The tinfoil and the salt were both empty when we arrived. 5. The standard of cleanliness leaves a lot to be desired. The floor had not been properly vacuumed and there was a chocolate bar wrapper in the pocket of one of the dressing gowns. I appreciate that Covid has made things more difficult for people who rent out holiday cottages, however only a few months ago I stayed in a (considerably less expensive) self-catering cottage near Fort William and all the usual facilities were provided, so it clearly not impossible to maintain standards whilst complying with requirements of infection control. Given the price of renting Feagour Lodge, and given how little it would cost to remedy most the problems listed above, I would be grateful if you might ask the owner to give these issues her attention.

About the location

NEWTONMORE

Kingussie 3 miles; Aviemore 15 miles; Fort William 45 miles; Inverness 47 miles.

Overlooking the River Spey, in the Cairngorms National Park (Britain's largest), Newtonmore has several shops and pubs, as well as two excellent, award-winning museums - the Highland Folk Museum and Clan MacPherson Museum. Newtonmore's Wildcat Trail is a popular, 7-mile circular walk around the edge of the village, taking in the River Spey with woodland, moorland and wonderful views across the valley to the Cairngorms, and behind the village to the Monadhliath Mountains - a fitting introduction to the delights of the National Park. For younger visitors, the Folk Park, the Wildlife Park at Kincraig, Landmark at Carrbridge and the Steam Railway are all outstanding local attractions. The area offers fine golf, fishing, pony trekking, walking, birdwatching, cycling, mountain biking, climbing and skiing, making it an ideal base from which to discover all that this scenic area of Scotland has to offer.
