  • "The property was perfect for our group of 8 adults and fully equipped for us to cook and stay in by the Wood burning fires, but we noticed it catered excellently for families as well."

    The house was spacious giving everyone room to either be together or go off on their own. Communication with the owners was excellent. I would highly recommend this property to anyone staying in this area

  • "House and location were brilliant."

    Lovely property. The only thing that proved a bit of a problem was the height of the bottom step at the front and back doors. I had my mother and mother in law with us and they struggled getting up the steps. Maybe putting hand rails either side would really make this easier for older guests. Otherwise everything else was faultless.

    So comfortable, well equipped, centrally located in beautiful surroundings with so much to do and see. Perfect.

  • "A nice property in a stunning location."

    The owners were super-friendly & helpful, and the cottage was a warm, well-equipped, and comfortable. It was a home-from-home from which it was easy to explore the area. The downstairs shower room was in need of redecoration and seating in the lounge was somewhat limited for the capacity of the house, but we would still happily visit again & would recommend the property to friends and family. To be honest the house was comfortable & perfectly adequate, but it's what's outside the window that you're really there to enjoy... the Cairngorms is an absolutely awesome location (in the truest sense of the word) & Scotland is incomparable in it's beauty...

  • "We have recently returned from a weeks holiday in Glencanisp House, Aviemore and can not recommend it highly enough."

    There were six of us staying there and we had a fantastic stay there, although the weather was mixed. The house was spotlessly clean and really well equipped with everything that we could need. It was well positioned for walking into Aviemore and for food shopping which was a five minute walk away. There was plenty of room for all of our cars, vans, bikes and a motorcycle. Our hosts were helpful and easy to contact especially when we had a power cut (which turned out to be a local power Cut). Their instructions were clear and precise from all information on how to get to the house to how to use the heating, cooker, wifi etc. The six of us are hoping to revisit the house again next year for another great holiday.

  • "The house is truly excellent."

    It is well-siutated though you have to get used to the noise during the nigth coming from the main road. The bedrooms are very neat with excellent beds. We enjoyed the large, very well-equipped kitchen and the place behind the house to sit and chat. The bathrooms are very good and it is good to have three toilets. A few of us enjoyed the bath-tub!

  • "Beautiful house, incredibly well equipped, especially for children."

    My one year old son had a ball, and the facilities exceeded my expectations for him - stair gate, fire guard, toys etc. The house was very clean and really lovely, situated a 5 minute walk from the centre of Aviemore. I would definitely recommend this house, especially if you have children.

  • "The house was well heated and with the addition of 2 log burners with a good supply of fuel, all included it felt very cosy and homely."

    There was plenty of room inside and parking off road. The location is central yet not too close to the noisier town centre. It made an excellent base for visiting the area.

  • "Glencanisp is a First Class house set in a beautiful part of Scotland."

    The house is exceptional with everything you could need for a very comfortable holiday. Aviemore has lots to do within a short distance, most notably The Highland Folk Museum and The Highland Wildlife Park, neither should be missed. Myself and family had a great weeks holiday, though a week is not enough to enjoy all this place has to offer, consequently we all hope to return to Glencanisp in the not too distant future.

  • "Glencanisp was a delight - roomy, comfortable, cosy and with a very comprehensive range of high-quality fixtures and fittings."

    Our extended family found a range of contents to suit everyone, with very thoughtful extras ranging from hot water bottles to bath toys for the children. The beds were very comfortable, with high quality bedding, and the two shower rooms plus charming bathroom served the 4 double bedrooms very well. The kitchen was huge and extremely well-equipped. I would highly recommend this accommodation and Sykes Cottages for ease and security of booking, with frequent updates and helpful information.

Superbly appointed throughout, this spacious and very well-equipped Aviemore cottage oozes comfort and style, and is ideal for a family or group of friends who want to enjoy the wonderful array of activities available in and around Aviemore.

This Aviemore cottage has bright and spacious accommodation set over two floors, with four well-proportioned bedrooms (one with an en-suite shower) on the first floor, along with the family bathroom.

The ground floor of this Aviemore cottage offers generous accommodation for relaxation, with a lovely sun room to the front, a sumptuous sitting room with multi-fuel stove and a large kitchen with dining area, sofa and another multi-fuel stove.

To complete the ground floor accommodation is a small sun room at the rear overlooking the quiet private garden.

This Aviemore cottage is ideally situated close to the vibrant town centre, which as you would expect has much to offer in terms of shopping, dining and lively pubs.

The Cairngorms National Park is not only famous for its outdoor pursuits, but also for its stunning scenery and wonderful wildlife.

Just a few miles south of Aviemore is Kincraig and the Loch Insh Watersports Centre, where young and old can participate in canoeing, sailing, windsurfing, fishing, archery and so much more.

Whilst still in Kincraig, a visit to the Highland Wildlife Park, open all year round, is a must.

So much to see and do here, but at the end of a busy day, returning to your Aviemore cottage will be a joy!
