The property

Perched on the edges of the Cairngorm National Park in the charming village of Dalwhinnie, Highlands, is this delightful two-bedroom, end terrace bungalow, 8 Distillery Cottage.

Enjoying a superb location overlooking the historic Dalwhinnie Distillery and just a short walk away from Loch Ericht, 8 Distillery Cottage makes for a wonderful dwelling for a group or family of four looking to explore the Highlands.

Park up in one of two off-road parking spaces, before unloading your bags and making your way into the porch to discard any coats and shoes after your journey.

Be welcomed into the contemporary kitchen, where you can look forward to whipping up culinary delights, utilising the electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and handy dishwasher, ensuring time isn’t wasted doing chores!

Just off the kitchen you will find a utility housing a tumble dryer and further storage for your belongings.

Serve up a flavourful meal in the living/dining room, as you open a bottle of fizz and toast to an unforgettable holiday.

After a hearty meal, retire to the sofa where you can kick-back and relax in front of your favourite film for the evening.

As your eyes grow heavy, retreat to the one of two-well-presented bedrooms, one double, which has a TV and a twin bedroom, each with plenty of storage for your belongings.

Awake from a leisurely slumber and indulge in a blissful soak in the bath or a refreshing shower, before treating your guests to morning coffee out on the private decking.

Explore the local village, where you will find The Lodge Dalwhinnie right on your doorstep, a part time café and bar, whilst the Loch Ericht Hotel plays host to a welcoming restaurant, which serves tasty meals amongst the warmth of the coal fire and is perfect for those evenings where you don’t feel like cooking.

A stay at 8 Distillery Cottage would not be complete without a visit to the Dalwhinnie Distillery, famed for being Scotland’s highest distillery, it offers guided tours and an on-site shop where you can purchase a bottle of the iconic whisky to remember your trip by.

If you don’t feel like driving, your holiday home benefits from being just a stone’s throw away from the Dalwhinnie Railway Station, serviced by the Central Highland line running midway between Perth and Inverness, so getting around has never been easier; the Caledonian Sleeper Train traveling from London puts 8 Distillery Cottage within easy reach of guests traveling from all over the country!

All of your local conveniences can be found in the village of Newtonmore, where traditional country pubs, hearty cafes and a pairing of high-street and independent shops line the high-street.

Here you can test your swing with a round of golf at Newtonmore Golf Club, explore the life of the highlands dating back to the 1700s with a tour of the Highland Folk Museum, or hunt for over 100 quirky model wildcats through the Newtonmore Community Woodland at the Wildcat Centre.

Outdoor and walking enthusiasts will have found their haven with the excellent selection of mountain peaks, or as the locals say 'Munros' on offer, including the 3,7666-ft Ben Alder, Craeg Meagaidh, not forgetting the highest peak in Britain, Ben Nevis.

Just a short drive away, you will find the Laggan Wolftrax Mountain Biking Trail where keen cyclists can explore an excellent selection of woodland trails covering 20 miles, along with The Big Shoot where you can experience Clay Pidgeon Shooting and the magnificent Ardverikie Estate, a Victorian manor house boasting sandy lochs and a deer forest, it is certainly not to be missed!

For a getaway to the Highlands like no other, choose 8 Distillery Cottage.

About the location


Strathmashie 9.4 miles; Kingcraig 19.3 miles; Fort William 44.5 miles.

Set amongst the dramatic mountain scenery of Badenoch, the small hamlet of Dalwhinnie is a wonderful base for exploring the bordering countryside. The village is one of the coldest villages in the UK, having an average annual temperature of 6.6oC, making it suitable for winter walking and mountaineering. The destination rests north of Drumochter, just off the A9 road from Perth to Inverness and has been bypassed since 1975. It is 2½ hours drive from both Edinburgh and Glasgow, 25 miles from Aviemore, 13 from Newtonmore and 17 from Kingussie. Dalwhinnie railway station lies on the Highland Main Line from Perth to Inverness. Why not pop into Dalwhinnie Distillery which is home to the famous Dalwhinnie Single Malt Scotch, part of the Diageo Range. Looking over the flat base of Glen Truim above sea level, the distillery boasts the highest elevation for a working distillery in all of Scotland and provides a delightful Visitor Centre. There are four trails that take in all the sights of Dalwhinnie from the Coachan Wood Viewpoint (3.5 miles) the Distillery Walk (1 mile), Forest Walks (3.5 miles) and the Loch Ericht Walk (1.5 miles).
