“Fabulous house, great location”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in June 2018

Just returned from a week's fabulous holiday in this great place. The house has everything you need for your stay; it's a home-from-home but with much better views!

The house is spacious, bright and airy, it's been well-designed and thought through. It was great to have a starter pack of bird food (we bought more) - we saw red squirrel on our first evening and plenty of siskins, coal tits etc. The garden is big and 'natural', which was perfect as it fitted in well with the landscape and felt like an extension to the woods at the back of the property (the wildlife thought so too). We really appreciated the eco-credentials of the property and tried (with a mixture of success) to take the 4-minute shower challenge!

The woods and various trails are easily accessed from the house - we'd recommend heading out towards Aviemore through the wood or the loop along the Spey and back through the village.

Derek is very lucky to have enjoyed this place for so long and clearly wants his guests to enjoy it too. Great communication at all stages and we appreciated the local goodies on arrival. Many thanks!

Boat of Garten is a great place to base yourselves - nothing seemed very far at all.

“Fantastic, inside and out”
Reviewed April 13, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

The cottage itself is immaculate, tasteful, modern and bright with quality fittings and everything you need , we were delighted when we saw it.
Key positives compared to other cottages we have rented over the years are : Amazon and Netflix on tv in lounge with great WiFi , wood burning stove (and plenty logs) , binoculars to use, starter pack of bird food and feeders in garden (spent hours watching the birds from the window) , private access to woods, the Strathspey steam train line in view and unlimately the peace and quiet.
Location was fantastic, as a short walk to local shops, which are well stocked and priced, the steam railway and the boat inn for dinner. In addition, the location is perfect for accessing all the local attractions, and walks in the area and we were lucky enough to see the baby polar bear at Kincraig wildlife park which was amazing!
Overall , a lot of thought has gone into making this property a quality rental and you won’t be disappointed.

Thanks very much Vicki, and all! A very kind review! The skiing has been exceptionally good up here this winter, and it is still snowing today!! So, there will probably be some great skiing again, once it clears up a wee bit. Of course, we would be delighted to welcome you all back again any time. Kind regards

Reviewed November 4, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

The cottage is tastefully furnished and well eqiuipped. It's an eco-example in terms of its efforts to mitigate any adverse environmental impact.

The location is quiet and picturesque, affording access to many outdoor activities.

“Perfect highland home”
Reviewed October 22, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We visited as a family of four and had an amazing holiday. The house is beautifully located with fantastic views and stunning wild garden. We were lucky to see red squirrels and numerous birds at the feeding tables. Inside, the house is decorated with so many lovely Scottish touches and is fantastically equipped. Nice touch to have some local treats left for our arrival. The house has many walks at its doorstep including the speyside way. The local area has lots to do for all ages. Our hosts were very attentive. Would highly reccommend a stay here.

Thanks Craig. Kind feedback much appreciated and great that you enjoyed the cottage. Pleased the squirrels made an appearance for you! They are quite pushy around the nuts at this time of year - I guess loading up for hibernation! Obviously, you're all welcome back any time. All the best.
