  • "We absolutely loved our 2 week stay here."

    What a fantastic location - so peaceful with just the sound of the river Feshie and birds. The cottage was perfect for myself, hubby and 2 spaniels, really well equipped (for humans and dogs!), very comfortable and relaxing with wonderful large windows to watch the birds on the feeder, deer and hares in the field. Plenty of great walks on the doorstep, easy access to longer walks into Glen Feshie, Loch an Eilean (and many more) and only a short drive to Aviemore, Rothiemurchus and the Cairngorm Ski Centre. Plenty of swimming opportunities too in nearby rivers and lochs! Lovely welcome pack of Highland blend tea bags, fresh coffee and delicious fudge on arrival, extra clean sets of bedding and spare towels. In our 15 years of coming up to stay in the Cairngorms, this has been our favourite - can't believe we didn't find you sooner! Thank you for a fantastic 2 weeks, we will be back.

  • "Tigh an Tearlach is the perfect place for a restful break."

    The cottage is spacious, comfortable and well equipped and in beautiful surroundings. We were surrounded by birds and animals and every morning woke to the sound of the river, only a couple of hundred yards away. We enjoyed walking from the property and there is a huge variety of things to do in the local area. This was our third visit and unlikely to be our last.

  • "A lovely cottage in a superb location."

    Warm & comfortable with everything we needed for a great stay. If you want peace & quiet to escape, then this is perfect. Easy access to the dozens of trails through the nearby forests & a short drive to Aviemore for supplies. This is our second stay and will definitely be back. We have even recommended it to our friends & family.

  • "Maybe hooks in the bathrooms for dressing gowns ."

    We would definitely stay there again, if we were in the area. We didnt cook much , but there was everything you could want in the kitchen, all in good working order. Lovely bed linen, duvets and pillows. Very sad to leave the two beautiful horses, we spent a lot of time watching them, it was like having two large pet dogs, always came across to say hello. Also saw the hare in the field.

  • "Tigh an Tearlach is a spacious but cosy cottage in a very quiet and beautiful location."

    It was spotless and warm, well equipped with many new additions since our previous visit two years previously. Despite its isolation the house is conveniently placed for visiting the whole Cairngorm region and is only 10 minutes drive from the Highland Wildlife park and 40 minutes from Inverness. There are lots of local walks and it is a perfect place to unwind. This is a very special place.

  • "Booked Tigh An Tearlach at short notice after being let down by another company."

    Great house set in a great location (Aviemore 10 minutes drive, Inverness 40). Lovely riverside walks right from your door and other more challenging walks via the surrounding forests and hills close by. Lots of wildlife around including hare, deer, squirrels and raptors. The house has everything you need (wifi works fine but no mobile service down at the house). Overall, Tearlach is ideal for a family with a dog or two - the short track down is not a problem and I have a small VW. It is close to an outdoor centre but that was shut when we visited so it was very quiet.

    As someone who had to shield i was worried about the cleaning . The place was so clean when you entered you could tell the owners cared about the cleaning . We had amazing weather for the time of year and loved sitting and relaxing outside in the lovely garden and watching the wildlife . The location is brilliant , our dog enjoyed the walks we had every day . You can find many walks on your doorstep truly amazing walks . The cottage is very well equipped , the wood burner heats the living room very well . Nice spacious kitchen , good bathrooms , Look out for the many birds and squirrels eating from the birdfeeder from the kitchen window . We loved this cottage so much we are looking to go back there . Lots to do in the surrounding area and its so beautiful . If you go to the Old Post office for a lovely coffee it gets very busy so be prepared to wait a while . Had a fantastic time , we really did not want to come home . Brett , Caroline and Ty ( the dog )

    Such a beautiful cottage in a perfect location, so many things to see and do in the immediate area. The wildlife was abundant, not a day went bye without sighting something amazing, our favourite spot was a badger just up the road. We will definitely be returning.

    I was unsure if this means originally I had purchased insurance, the cost of which had been taken but I may not have actually been covered. Maybe this activation should be scrapped or made more clear and money not taken until activation is completed.

  • "The cottage is wonderfully remote but finding it was not helped by the property directions which begin ‘From the A9 turn off into the village of Kincraig."

    ..’ The A9 is a busy dual carriageway at his point so if arriving from the South vehicles need to leave just after Kingussie turning onto the B9152 which runs parallel with the A9 and Kincraig is on this road. Tigh An Tearlach is a surprisingly spacious bungalow. It was warm and comfortable and over the week we came to love the place. One downside was that the bath taps didn’t function but we noticed a spare in the utility room so this is clearly in hand. The shower worked well. The river Feshie is 5 minutes walk away and there are many signed woodland walks within a few miles. Native wildlife abounds and the Highland Wildlife park is only 10-15 minutes away by car, making an annual pass very good value, particularly as it also allows unlimited visits to Edinburgh and a number of other Zoos around the UK. We missed the crowds by having 3 early morning visits and had wonderful quiet views of the animals including, of course, Hamish, the young Polar Bear!

    It's in the middle of forest surrounded by mountains with a stream at the side of the property and a river at the bottom of the garden. Fantastic place to take your dog, we had a great time and would definitely consider going again. The log burner keeps the whole house cosy which was a definite plus as it snowed a lot whilst we were there. The track leading down to the house was a bit tricky in the snow and ice but perfectly fine as I had snow tyres on the car. Great cottage.
