    spending great days in the splendour of autumn, with stunning colours, and well managed forests. Footpaths are well maintained and everywhere is litter free. I had a morning doing a hilltop walk with the rangers and other walkers to meet up with the herds of very friendly, yet wild reindeer. This had to be the highlight of my holiday. Then to return to a lovely warm and welcoming bungalow - just couldn't be better. It was great to see the steam train running across the bottom of the garden, and of course we had a trip on the train, ending with lunch in the cairngorm hotel. The people in Scotland are very friendly and helpful. I would definitely go again and recommend steam cottage to all my friends and family. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We are so pleased that you had such an enjoyable stay in Steam Cottage as well as in Aviemore. - Sykes owner relations
