    “Place dirty, had to buy basics like salt, TV very small, broke down, no outside space to sit and the chair had a hole in it.”

    Twin room very small, no room for luggage. Nice location though

    Thanks for your time in writing your review, although I’m of course sorry it’s so negative. I must say I’m surprised to hear you have described the property was dirty, given our conversation on the phone when you called me on arrival to ask for an additional set of towels as you had arrived at the house with an additional guest that you had not booked. At no point during this call did you mention this, nor when Alison (our housekeeper) dropped the towels round, and if there had been a problem it could have been resolved immediately. My wife and I were the last people to use the house prior to your arrival and it was left in an immaculate condition. There was also salt in the cabinet in the kitchen. We were sorry to hear that the TV stopped working a week into your stay. We immediately acted upon this, on a Sunday, to organise a replacement as soon as possible, which arrived within 48 hours (the earliest possible time given delivery times in the highlands!) undoubtedly, it is very frustrating when something goes wrong, but I think you’d agree we dealt with this as promptly as we could under the circumstances. With regards to the outdoors, we do not advertise a garden space nor seating outside. Finally, the size of the second bedroom is very clear from the photographs, and previous feedback has commented about how much bigger the house was than had been expected. There is a large wardrobe in the main bedroom where suitcases can be stored. Again, I’m very sorry you were left disappointed, but I hope my response has offered some clarity for what is a rather unfair review when we were very responsive and communicative with you during your stay. - Sykes owner relations

About the location


Aviemore 12 miles.

Situated in the glorious Cairngorms National Park, Kingussie attracts visitors all year round. The town has a fine selection of hotels, shops and restaurants, as well as being home to one of Scotland's most beautiful golf courses. At the award-winning Highland Folk Museum, just 2 miles from Kingussie, demonstrations of traditional crafts take place most days during the summer months in the ‘streets’ of the village-like grounds. Just 12 miles south of Aviemore it is also a popular winter destination for skiers along with the Lecht, with skiing and snowboarding for all abilities. Visit Dalwhinnie, where you can tour Scotland's highest distillery and have the mysteries of whisky making explained (and purchase a bottle!) or go to the Highland Wildlife Park, and explore the habitat walks and be amazed at the wolf territory and a diverse collection of Highland wildlife. An excellent location to tour this attractive part of the Central Highlands, with many of the main attractions an easy drive away.

Note: The open fire will not be available from 24th September 2019
