  • "Best away stay ever!"

    Property conveniently located close to village with lovely walks on doorstep. Property spotlessly clean and we really appreciated that it had been decorated for our Xmas stay. Well heated with loads of hot water and everything ( and more!) was provided to make our stay enjoyable - even to TVs in bedrooms. A real home away from home. Thoroughly recommend this property to others.

  • "Excellent cottage in great base for exploring cairngorms and highlands, 3 hours to John o Groats, 30 mins to Inverness."

    Cottage rooms are lovely and larger than look on photos, fully enclosed rear garden with patio and clothes drying area,fully enclosed front garden. Pets welcome and it was perfect for our Jack Russell, small tesco, aldi and coop in Aviemore but pretty well stocked, 3 chippys, best one only 5 min walk away, nice walk by golf course 5 mins away, we saw a wild deer watching us. Railway goes past rear of cottage, but not often. Top marks, we would definitly stay here again.

  • "A lovely holiday cottage in a great location."

    Far enough from the centre for peace and quiet and not too long to walk home from the pub. It was lovely and clean on our arrival and had clearly been well cleaned before we arrived. Lovely clean smell too. Everything available that we could possibly need and it was lovely to be greeted with milk, tea and coffee so that our first job of tea making could be easily done. The only issue for us were the stones on the drive and back garden as our greyhound struggled with walking on this, however for most dogs this wouldn't be a major problem as a front grassed garden is available.

    Within easy walking distance of the town centre but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful. Lovely, clean and well equipped cottage with everything you need. Added bonus of seeing the steam train pass the end of the garden. We will definitely book 17 lockhart place again The owners were amazing and made our stay even better Thankyou Paul,Louise and Seth

  • "There were only two little things that bothered me, we were so lucky with the weather the sun shone for us which made the nights very humid even with the bedroom windows open it was difficult to get a full nights sleep."

    So for Summer time I would recommend a lighter quilt than 13.5 tog with an extra throw if needed. Number two although the picnic table was alright to eat at it was not comfortable to sit at for long. A few sun chairs kept in the cupboard would have been Heaven. Apart from that we would recommend this property, so well kept. Thank you.

    The owner was very welcoming and very helpful. Our stay was very pleasant and the cottage is situated in a nice, quiet cul de sac. Very dog friendly and the gardens, both front and back were secure for our two small dogs.

  • "Stayed here over Christmas & New Year 2018, first off would like to say that the owners went above and beyond welcoming us to the holiday home."

    The place was very clean and had everything needed for two weeks relaxing, we took our dog (Cavapoo), both front and back garden had lots of space for him to run around and he enjoyed letting off steam at the steam train that passed at the back. We didn't have a car but managed to get shopping from the town (Tesco/Aldi) which was a twenty minute walk away, there is a Co-op about five mins away which had a good amount of stock also a chippy that was fantastic. Just across from the home were walks that we spotted deer wandering in the woodland. The owners left a list of dog friendly pubs and cafes that was very helpful, we tried The Old Bridge Inn (near the train station) which had lovely food at a good price. Also there is a local brewery (The Cairngorm Brewery) that is a few minutes a way that do tasting sessions (worth the fee) and a tour that can be booked. When we look to come back to Scotland especially to Aviemore we will definitely stay here again. Highly recommended.

    The house was very clean and comfy, it was equipped with everything that we could possibly need and even the dog was made to feel welcome with an enclosed garden, blankets to sleep on, bowls and a tin of treats. I can't think of any improvements that could be made. The area was ideal for all kinds and we were never in our two week stay, lost for things to do.

The property

Located centrally in the vibrant town of Aviemore, this smartly presented semi-detached cottage gives easy access to all the excellent facilities that Aviemore and the surrounding area have to offer.

Set in a quiet residential street, this cottage is perfect for a family or group of friends who want to enjoy the amenities and wonderful scenery close by and be able to walk to the restaurant and pub in the evening.

With accommodation all on one level, there is a tastefully-presented sitting/dining room where visitors will be happy to relax after an active day, and a well-equipped kitchen where meals can be prepared with ease.

There are two bedrooms; one double, and one twin.

On a summers evening, the private rear patio is ideal for a barbecue or quiet pre-dinner drink, and an added attraction to this cottage is that the famous steam railway passes by the garden a couple of times a day!

As one would expect there is so much to see and do here, whether you are a walker, wildlife lover or thrill seeker.

For children and adults, the nearby wildlife park at Kincraig is a must-visit attraction, and the Landmark Activity Centre in Carrbridge will entertain children for a full day at least, with its water slides, climbing wall and wide selection of rides.

For outdoor pursuits, cycling, walking, fishing and sled dog racing are all available close by, and for watersports the Loch Insh Watersport Centre offers sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and river trips.

So much to do, and such a welcoming cottage to return to at the end of a fabulous day!
