  • "The cottage is not only stunning but immaculate on arrival, it is extremely comfortable to relax and read a book or watch a DVD and the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in!"

    The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed to cook which was super helpful! Leanne and Adam were so lovely and friendly too! The location is just as perfect as the cottage, stunning walks for the dogs, we visited Aviemore which was about a 30 min (if that) drive and it had an Aldi, Costa, lovely gift shops, lovely restaurants and some lovely Loch’s which we had some lovely walks around! This was the most perfect week away and we absolutely will be coming back here - I cannot recommend enough.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us such lovely feedback. We are so pleased you loved Ash Cottage and found you had everything you needed in the kitchen. Lovely to hear that you slept well and loved the location. We look forward to welcoming you back.Kind regards, Adam & Leanne Property Owner

    The cottage is beautiful and spotless. Plenty of room and everything you could possibly need. Layout and grounds are fabulous, especially if you have a dog. We went out and about every day and the cottage was lovely to come home too. We loved it and we will definitely return. Thank you

    The enclosed outside space is a massive bonus if you’re travelling with a dog. The cottage itself is very clean and has everything you may need and more! Leanne and Adam are so friendly and helpful. It’s an excellent base for any outdoor activities with beautiful walks on the doorstep and a short drive to Loch Insh for paddle boarding /kayaking

  • "Ash cottage exceeded our expectations."

    The facilities were excellent, the cottage was clean, modern and very comfy. The location was also ideal to explore The Highlands, wit the cottage leading straight on to the A9 most destinations were within half an hour's drive. I would thoroughly recommend these cottages, especially for dog lovers.

  • "Lovely in a great setting property however (and outside of owners control) - consistent road noise from A9 and this place is only as peaceful as your close neighbours."

    On my stay immediate neighbour had 2 noisy dogs that would bark and growl every time we tried to use the outside space. Quality of accommodation is very high indeed.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. We are pleased that you found the setting lovely and were pleased with the quality of Ash Cottage. We are sorry to hear that during your stay the guests' 2 dogs in the next cottage were unsettled, some dogs find adjusting to new surroundings harder than others. Property Owner

    The most comfortable and huge bed was welcome at night ensuring good sleep after our walks. Adam, the owner, was friendly and helpful and knowledgeable regarding the local area. We were provided with an information pack which was also helpful and we appreciated the milk and treats provided.

    My husband is over 6ft and was delighted to find we had a very comfortable super king bed. So many walks around the area to explore and on rainy days the complex is super peaceful, perfect for reading yr fav novel, naps or an afternoon matinee on the Netflix they provide. We stayed a week and could have easily stayed on for another.
