“Great place to visit the Cairngorms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

Excellent cottage setting just off the A9. Very comfortable, well appointed and everything you'd hope from a home away from home in the Highlands. Location is excellent too, so much is easily accessible so it's great for walkers, skiers and family trips, especially with so much to keep the wee ones occupied.

Room Tip: If going when cold, select a smaller cottage as they're easier to get and keep warm.

Great facilities for kids, very well maintained and clean. bright airy cottage with well equipped kitchen - well thought through. Peaceful surroundings but possibly a bit remote for some. wifi temperamental but otherwise very little to improve. Would definitely go back.
Thank-you!

Excellent accommodaton, and very friendly people. just off the A9 was very easy to find. some great walks and not that far from the local village. would stay again.

Top tip, don't go the Happy Haggis, the food is very poor quality, cold, and small portions

Room Tip: from what i could see they are all good, but could ask for one overlooking the lake

Stayed 3 nights in Elm Cottage over Easter weekend. It was an amazing stay. The cottage feels like it is in the middle of nowhere but is just a short drive from the A9. The whole place is immaculate (cottage, outside areas and excellent games room). The people on site were friendly and informative and left us to our own devices after explaining how everything worked and how to find them if we needed anything. Short drive to Aviemore, the Highland Wildlife Park, Landmark and many other fun places. Our dog was welcome too, which made it even better. That said, there was no hint of that "doggy" smell you sometimes find in dog friendly accommodation - surely a sign of high quality cleaning and maintenance. We will certainly be going back.

The perfect location to escape from everything! We would happily come stay every year (or more! In fact we do). The landlord is very friendly and helpful, and lent us items such as fishing rods and advised us on places to eat. If you are renting a car, there is a cheap dealer in the nearby town of Kingussie called Westend Garages who are also very welcoming. The scenery around Crubenbeg is spectacular with many lovely walks up mountains and by lakes, and the cottage we stay in is so comfy, with wood burners and sofas to cuddle up on! If you come in the summer, there is a lovely garden for children with swings, a Wendy house, places for BBQ with brilliant view at the foot of a mountain. I would strongly recommend visiting here!

We have just returned home from a wonderful stay at Crubenbeg. We received a very warm, friendly welcome and Hazel cottage itself is truly beautiful with very picturesque surroundings. We loved the log burning fire, kept us warm all throughout the evening! The kids were kept entertained with the Playstation, dvd's, board games and in particular the wifi. The cottage was very clean and well equipped and certainly spacious enough for 6. The dog was allowed too so that was an added bonus for us! The cottages are in a good location, a short distance from the nearest town but still within easy reach of the mountains for skiing. All in all we had a fabulous stay, a real home from home experience! Many thanks to all at Crubenbeg xx

Superb cottages in a lovely location. Very helpful owners, very nice accommodation.
Have been 3 times already, and will be back again! Great place for walking the dog too!!
Very large, comfy bed plus loads of piping hot water!
Wife loved the 'automatic' log burner, heated the room in no time.
Very helpful folder with all the info you'd need on the surrounding area - might need to add a wee warning note for anyone trying to go up Cruben Beag, behind the cottages, it's awffy steep on the way down!!
