We stayed at Steading 5 for a few nights to attend a friend's Wedding in nearby Loch Insh and Aviemore respectively, and loved every second of the stay.
The cottage is pretty much perfect in every way and the amount of equipment, cutlery and crockery supplied is far and above what we could have expected. To then have a Freeview tv/dvd player, a Playstation, free wi-fi, countless books, dvd's and games and a welcome gift of local shortbread and a small bottle of Stags Breath Whisky Liqueur was the icing on the cake.
Sadly we had to cut our stay short but are already making plans to return and take in the beautiful and rugged countryside around the area.
