“Convenient and cosy cottage”
Reviewed June 15, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We enjoyed our few days in Aviemore, the cottage has everything needed and is close to the shops and restaurants. Despite the fact that it is June the heating was welcome. The dog enjoyed the walk recommended by Dorothy as well.

I'm glad you all enjoyed your short break...there is snow forecast for the mountain this weekend so guess summer is not here yet!

“Perfect cosy little home to explore the Glens and Highlands.”
Reviewed June 1, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This little house is like a tardis - nothing much to look at on the outside but cosy and warm on the inside and nicely furnished with all the basics you need in a holiday home. The games were a nice touch - my children loved the chess/draughts set and dominoes - and there are blankets and a TV set with plenty of channels for a night in front of the box.
We were very happy here for three nights - including my daughter's birthday and were able to explore the mountains, Loch Ness, Ben Nevis and up to Inverness with ease from this location.

“Central, comfortable and easy to find”
Reviewed May 26, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Ideal for us with a small child. close to centre of the village and Tescos. Ate at The Winking Owl (book a table),we were lucky eating early. Tourist information is v helpful. Try out the childrens' play park behind the Macdonalds resort. It is great.
We enjoyed the Cairngorm Mountain Railway and the Highland Wild life Park

“Excellent value.”
Reviewed March 12, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I stayed here with my partner and young child.
Very comfortable warm and close to all amenities in the village.
Sometimes when a hotel room isn't big enough this just suits us fine, plenty space for the wee one to run around.
Thank you again
John

“recommended”
Reviewed March 10, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

the shelter stone cottage was clean, warm and very comfortable. It was also easy to find and within easy reach of local facilities. the owner , Dorothy kindly allowed us to leave our bags in the cottage on Sunday until we returned from a walk and went for the train in the afternoon.

“Perfect Family Accomodation central to Aviemore Town”

person found this review helpful

We loved our stay at the Shelter Stone Bothy. It was very cosy and just the right size for us and our 2 small children. The open plan layout meant we were all together the whole time. We especially loved that it was so central to the main town. We could easily walk everywhere and made regular apres ski trips to the Winking Owl which is next door but one !!!

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
