    Our only concern was the temperature of the lower level bedroom and the mattress seemed a bit less comfortable but it won't stop us booking again

  • "We had a fabulous week."

    For October the weather was great but on the days we got wet the cottage provided the perfect cosy comfy base to head home too. Location was perfect, just off the A9, which you couldn’t hear from inside the house, giving easy access to local towns & beauty spots and walks of course. . The views were amazing. We had my 6 month old lab with us and she had a ball too. Gail and Robert had thought of everything. The cottage was clean, comfy and cosy and the 3 of us plus puppy are already trying to co-ordinate dates for a return visit.

  • "This was our second visit so knew what to expect."

    Cottage had everything we needed except a small sharp knife. Didn't hear the A9 even though so close and the trains were part of the attraction but not really that many of them. Ideally situated in beautiful surroundings with excursions available in all directions. Very well equipped and comfortable, dog friendly, what more can you ask. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "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.

  • "Dramatic views across the glen."

    Very clean. Phone reception was good enough to stream a live football match (hotspot on phone to get internet on laptop and then HDMI from laptop to TV!). Saw deer, rabbits and a few species of bird around the cottage. Very quiet and peaceful despite main road and railway line nearby. Loch and smaller river pools on the other side of the tracks were fun.

    It is an absolute gem nestled in the Cairngorms. The scenery is spectacular and the cottage is cosy and comfortable with safe gardens for our dog. I highly recommend this cottage.

    The cottage had everything we needed, with good facilities. Great outdoor area with plenty of seating as well as garden space. A great place to go see many surrounding areas. Nearby there were loads of beautiful trails accessible by foot. Highly recommend staying here.

  • "The cottage and location were amazing."

    The only concern, if you can call it that is that we didn't have a contact number for the owners of the cottage while we where there and it wasn't available to us on our Sykes booking information either which could have been a problem if an issue arose. We will definitely return to the cottage, hopefully in the very near future

    If you love space & remoteness as we do, this is a place you will love. Come prepared! Its a long way to the shops. If you are out & about in the car not difficult, but enjoyed no car just walking & the peace for 5 days. We will always remember the table in the window & enjoying the scenery with our meals.

    The cottage was amazing and everything we could wish for the owner had gone out of there way to make sure it was as we would like it and all the little extras provided were really nice and we would not hesitate to go again as we said in our notes the only thing that could be changed is it would really benefit from a second toilet upstairs but loved it

  • "This was the perfect getaway cottage."

    The location is stunning and the house is a “home from home”, exceptionally clean, top end furniture and and a well equipment kitchen. We took all our food for the seven days and my husband thought I was being dramatic, however this is a rural location and although ‘House of Bruar’ is the closest shop I would not like to do a weeks shopping there!! Thank you for letting us share your lovely Loch Garry home.

  • "We greatly enjoyed our stay in this clean & cosy cottage."

    The views were lovely across the fields and it was nice to watch the trains from the dining table. The whole house was surprisingly spacious and the sofas & beds were very comfy. It was the ideal place for a peaceful week away, with the House of Bruar, Queens View and Pitlochry within 30mins drive. Look forward to staying here again.

  • "We enjoyed our visit."

    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


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).
