  • "Fantastic holiday cottage with beautiful view down the Glen, extremely comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, good hot shower in the bathroom and cosy log burner in the sitting room with again very comfy sofas, perfect for relaxing after a great day out in the local area."

    This is our second stay here for a week and we still haven’t run out of things to do, great location for a variety of mountains for keen Munro baggers, as well as more gentle ambles around the local lochs and forests at Laggan and towards Aviemore, we would definitely like to stay again, many thanks to the owners.

  • "The cottage was just as listed although the photos did not do it justice."

    All the little finishing touches made this cottage perfect in everyway. This is situated in a peaceful location despite the road. We particularly liked all the rabbits waiting to welcome us home in the evening. The location is ideal with plenty to do and see right on your doorstep or to venture further afield and come home to a comfortable cosy cottage. We had a wonderful stay and hope to visit again next year.

  • "We booked the cottage as a base for visiting family and sightseeing."

    A lovely cottage with everything you need. It was in a perfect location. Stunning views. Nice secure garden. A few gaps under some of the wooden fence so be careful with smaller pets or children. The only thing to note is perhaps an updated instruction manual on how to physically switch on the gas for the gas hob. If you are not familiar with gas bottles then it is frustrating as we couldn’t use it for a few days. Where to put your rubbish etc would be useful. Happy to do so. Certainly would book again . No internet is not a major issue for us as our phones did work. Thank you Gail and Robert. It was a home from home. Lots of attention to detail inside and a lovely Scottish twist. Our dogs loved it in the garden! Gillian C

  • "Could improve - Install Wi-fi."

    - Improve the instruction pack (i.e. No instructions for the cooker of for rubbish disposal). - Welcome pack a little disappointing with some items out of use by date

    Thank you for your feedback, instructions for the oven are included in the cottage folder but honestly thought the gas cooker was self explanatory. We will add information regarding rubbish and for the out of date items I can only conclude this was the individual honey packs which we have withdrawn. We will address all and more promptly.

  • "I suppose it was my fault but I didn’t appreciate how close the cottage was to the road."

    The trains were quite fun but the road was noisy. The view was marred by the array of rubbish in the garden of the cottage in front. The sitting room was smaller than anticipated and felt cramped with the dining table in it. We had a power cut and I wasn’t sure if we could drink the water if the power was off but I couldn’t contact anyone as the mobile reception went down with the power cut. The bathroom was a bit of a squeeze to get round the door to the sink. Having said that the cottage was very clean, the water was delicious and the DVD collection was amazing. We had a good time.

Loch and smaller river pools on the other side of the tracks were fun.

    We were extremely lucky to have such good weather, considering the weather forecast and the time of year. Met the gentleman who owned the cottage, on arrival. He was very pleasant and helpful. Did not need to contact him during our stay, but knew we could if necessary. Only one negative aspect to our stay is the path to the house. However, this is my personal opinion as an older person who has difficulty walking.

About the location

DALWHINNIE

Strathmashie 9.4 miles; Kingcraig 19.4 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).
