    “Amazing stay at The Cairn!”

    We have recently returned home from our weeks stay at The Cairn, located in the Cairngorms National Park. Upon arriving, the property was extremely clean and modern inside making our weeks stay extremely comfortable. The Cairn is a fantastic base, located in the Boat of Garten allowing you to explore areas such as Aviemore, Loch Ness and Inverness. We even managed a sunny day at the beach of Roseisle, it’s definitely worth the drive! The property was fantastic to stay in from start to finish ...

We even managed a sunny day at the beach of Roseisle, it’s definitely worth the drive! The property was fantastic to stay in from start to finish and perfect for exploring the Highlands! We can highly recommend and The Cairn gets 5* from us. We cannot wait to return again soon! A big thanks to Elaine and Roy for all of their help during our stay!

As you enter the property, be welcomed into the utility, boasting a washing machine and a tumble dryer, so that you can easily freshen up your belongings after a muddy walk before venturing further into the property.

Regroup with your loved ones at the heart of the home, the open-plan living room, filled with elegant interiors and complemented by all the essentials required for a self-catering experience.

When you feel like trying your hand at cooking, rather than sampling the culinary delights of Boat Of Garten, make use of the quality range of appliances within the kitchen area, including an electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge/freezer, as well as a dishwasher to offer a helping hand.

Evening meals can be enjoyed at the dining table before you flick on the electric fire, sink into the sofa and tune into the Smart TV.

Centrally located within the village, this is the ideal location to discover the delights of Boat Of Garten, home to a selection of restaurants, bar, a Post Office, a shop and a café and also a steam train station which connects to Aviemore.

From here, you can look forward to trying your hand at fishing on the River Spey, or play a round of golf at the Boat of Garten Golf, an 18-hole course designed by professional golfer and golf-course architect, James Braid.

The village is well-known for being the home of the Osprey, due to its close proximity to RSPB: Loch Garten, a wonderful opportunity for birdwatching or leisurely strolls amidst endearing wildlife.

Whilst staying here, families of all ages will be delighted by Landmark Forest Adventure Park, whilst those seeking to brush up on the local history can visit the landmark of Aviemore Ring Cairn and Stone Circle and Loch an Eilein, Rothiemurchus.
