“Great house in a great location for exploring Aviemore”
Reviewed October 24, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

This house is in a great location, only 6 miles from Aviemore, in a lovely quiet cul-de-sac with fantastic views of the Cairngorms. More than adequate space for a family of 4 with an enormous secluded and safe garden for children. Inside it was clean, spacious, cosy and very well equipped. A true home from home! Ron is an excellent host.

“Great stay at The Sangar”
Reviewed October 23, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

The Sangar is a great place to stay and we had a thoroughly enjoyable time there.
Ron is a very helpful host and was quick to respond with any questions we had and to provide additional information and suggestions.
The house was perfect for our family of 6, and was clean, tidy and well equipped.
The location was great for easy access to walking / mountain bike trails and watersports on lock Insch.
Red squirrels in the garden was an added bonus.
Would definitely stay again.

“Everything you could need for a special break!”
Reviewed September 18, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

person found this review helpful

The Sangar is a cosy cottage surrounded by a beautiful garden in the lovely village of Kincraig. It provides everything you need for a short break or extended holiday & is immaculate & full of character, With comfortable bedrooms, a super drying room & a lovely, light sitting room with a welcoming open fire it is a real haven. The garden offers an outdoor sitting area with its own wildlife entertainment in the form of a selection of birds & cheeky wee red squirrels.
We loved being in such a beautiful, quiet spot but only a ten minute drive to Aviemore with all its sporting activities, cafes & restaurants, perfect location!

“Perfect base for a trip to the area, and the perfect host”
Reviewed August 27, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We cannot fault our stay here, the house was spotless on arrival and is very homely and comfortable. Everything we needed was here, and the location is great, very peaceful but easily accessible. The red squirrels and various birds visiting the feeders throughout the day were a wonderful bonus, so nice to watch from the comfort of the lounge. Ron was the perfect host, always available and hugely knowledgable and helpful, providing us with loads of local information and suggestions. Cannot praise the property or the host highly enough. Definitely hope to return for a longer stay in the future.

A two day stay is not what we encourage but your comments demonstrate that, when well planned and weather permitting, it can work well. We look forward to welcoming you back.

“Faultless location!”
Reviewed August 24, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Spent just under 2 weeks at the Sangar and had a great time. The house is cosy and wants for nothing. Everything is immaculate and of good quality and the location is really quiet - each morning we watched 3 red squirrels feeding in the garden. Kincraig is ideal for exploring the area - my wife and teenage children cycled, walked, went golfing, kayaking and played tennis. There's plenty more to do and a trip to Nairn for a beach walk is worthwhile. We'll be back!

“The best place to enjoy holiday.”
Reviewed August 12, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The Sangar is the best place that I have ever had. Ron is a nice host who take good care of guests. He is patient and friendly who could recommend guests several beautiful places to visit in highland. Besides, if you meet some problems, he would like to give advise and try his best to help you. The house is well decorated and the facilities are nice. Although highland is a cold place in Scotland, you will never feel cold in the Sangar. The house with a big yard could do BBQ also. It's the best place for family to relax and enjoy the leisure time. Couldn't love this place more. Love Sangar. Love Ron. Guest: Cici.

Thanks Cici. The contrast between Beijing and Kincraig must have been a real challenge for you and your family but I am delighted you all had such a great time. We loved having you and you'll be welcome back any time.
