Thank you for a wonderful stay myself and my two daughters had a fantastic few days. Shelagh the owner absolutely went the extra mile for us, from the incredible room, attention, local advice and tips. One of the best breakfasts we have all had to include my tricky daughters. There is a DVD library and a honesty bar, so for... More

Very centrally located that makes this guest house very convenient. It's only a 10 minute walk into the main street filled with shops, cafes, outdoor clothing shops, hiking stores etc. The owner greets you upon arrival and shows you to your room after taking the time to guide you about the area. You may choose the time you would like... More

Check in is between 4 and 6, no exceptions! We were delayed with business in England and got stuck in traffic due to an accident, followed by a lot of construction. Got a rather curt phone call at 6:15 asking why we were late, and if we were coming. Confused, I told her we were on her way. She then... More

Everything was perfect, beginning to end. When our train was delayed ( until midnight!) getting to Aviemore, Shelagh made sure we had transportation arranged to the house, a code for the locks and sent us all other appropriate info we needed that evening. The house is lovely and well kept, with excellent decorating and updating.House is spotless and everyone extremely... More

This place is just the best. We have stayed before and we were again not disappointed. The attention to detail and the breakfasts are of such a high standard. The rooms are fantastic and the guest sitting room with the honesty bar is very comfortable and relaxing. Thank you Sheila and we will see you again in the autumn.
