We have just come back from a wonderful Christmas away in Aviemore and staying at Pine Bank Chalets again made it all the more special. We stayed in the Dulnain cabin this time. Absolutely spot on size and facilities for a couple. Although from the moment we arrived the cabin was always heated (centrally by the management) exactly right, we... More

My partner and I stayed in the Nethy cabin for our first mini-break in Aviemore - it will not be the last! :-) Pine Bank is a short walk from Aviemore train station and very close to the welcoming log fire (and great food) of The Old Bridge Inn. We loved Nethy as a base for preparing cooked breakfasts and... More

Handy location as its just on entering Aviemore - on a quiet road running parallel to the main one. Two mins walk and your in the best pub (dog friendly) The Old Bridge Inn and another 2 mins and you're in the town. Handy for Tescos, Indian Takeaway etc. Sight is well maintained - very clean and lovely safe kids... More

Enjoyed our break at Pine Bank , everything we needed in the Cairngorm but kitchen and bathroom a wee bit tired.My only dislike was the music going on until approx 2.15 am, was lovely and peacefull the rest of the time and did not expect that.

Hi, Many thanks for your review. I am very sorry to hear about the noise you experienced during your stay. I can only think that it must have been from the pub down the road as Halloween is the biggest party of the year for them (with the exception of Hogmanay) and they were granted a late license until 2am...

Myself and my family (wife, kids; aged 5 & 2) have just returned from an absolutely fantastic break at Pine Bank Lodges. Where do I begin, from the beautiful and superbly well appointed lodge (we stayed in the Bynack lodge) to the gorgeous and very centrally located site, to the welcoming and friendly hosts Simon & Tanja, I really cannot...

Nice standard chalet everything you need for self catering, very handy for the town, was surprised how close to railway line it was but not a problem we quite enjoyed the trains & didn't need a watch they were always on time!

Had a brilliant stay in the Cairntoul cabin, was so clean and well equipped, owners were really friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back again. Aviemore is so beautiful, stunning scenery and so much to do. The cabin that we had had recently been refurbished and was perfect for us. Sadly we didn't get chance to use the wood burner... More

We stayed for 3 nights in Craggan cabin. There was ample space for 6 adults (we were 4 adults, 1 toddler). The kitchen facilities are great - it has everything you need (including cloths, washing-up liquid and tea towels). The beds were very comfortable. The larger bedroom is very dark however, and the smaller bedroom has only a loft-style window,... More
