    ! . Happen arrival we could see the place looked quite shabby from the outside and when we got inside it got worse . The smell that greeted you when we open the back door in to the kitchen was like someone had been to the toilet down the sink (number 2s) the work top edging had come away the hob was flithy the cupboards were sticky with grease . The front room was cold and damp 1 of the sofas was actually wet and there was a mixture of white dog hairs and dust blowing round the room like tumble weed . The main bedroom was advertised as having a king size bed but no that was just a standard size the bedding hadn't been changed and was stained with boderly fluids and the quilt was heaverly stained with yellow and brown makes (We had to go and buy new quilt and covers) there was no curtains up to the wardrobe the dust under the bed I've never seen any thing like it . The bathroom floor the tiles were broken and lifted about 1cm the floor felt very spongey like it could give way the shower head was squirting water on to the electric shower control unit . All the windows were dirty not just on the outside but inside to . Most of the picture on the site don't actually match what we were greeted with . There's no welcome pack no instructions on how to work things and we still never found the games room . The drive was advertised as been able to park 2 cars on it yep that was ture if you drive a smart car and are stick thin as the hedge is so overgrown . The owner didn't seem to care about the state of the place or what we had to put up with she ignored all attempts of contact . So all in all I would say avoid this like the plague IT was just so dirty and unkempt. NOT A NICE PLACE AT ALL !!

The property

This cosy semi-detached cottage is situated on the outskirts of the village of Aviemore and provides a neat and welcoming holiday home.

This cottage is ideal for a couple, a family group or a group of friends who want to enjoy this popular area together.

Ivy Cottage has a very well-equipped kitchen that leads though to the spacious sitting/dining room where meals can be enjoyed together around the table and also leads to the rear garden via the external door.

There are two freshly decorated bedrooms, one at the front of the house and the other overlooking the rear garden.

For visitors with bikes, golf clubs or even canoes then there is a garage storage area situated at the side of the cottage.

From this location the whole of the National Park is easily accessible and the array of activities is quite mind boggling!

Of course the ski areas are close by but even if you are not a skier taking a trip on the funicular railway journey up the CairnGorm Mountain is a unique experience and allows people of all ages and abilities to reach the Top Station where you not only get breathtaking panoramic views but can also enjoy a meal in the restaurant.

For wildlife lovers then a visit to the RSPB at Loch Garten is a must, as it is home to the ospreys in Scotland and the surrounding ancient pinewoods and beautiful lochs are quite stunning.

For the active and less active this area is simply magnificent.

Aviemore is a perfect holiday destination offering a diverse array of activities for both young and old and this is a great wee cottage for a great Scottish holiday!

Situated in the heart of the Scottish Highlands and in the Cairngorms National Park, Aviemore is an ideal holiday location. The area offers good fishing, superb walking in the surrounding hills and woodland, and golfing on the many fine courses in the area. There is also sailing, riding and birdwatching, with rare species to be found including Ospreys and Capercaillie. You will find Aviemore an ideal base for touring the Highlands and nearby Grampians. The landscape is dotted with historic castles and tempting distilleries, while the region is known to millions as the setting for the popular TV series 'Monarch of the Glen'. Enjoy fishing on the majestic River Spey all summer, and winter skiing on the Cairngorms and Lecht ski centres, appealing to thrill-seekers and novices alike.
