“Better than any photo you see!”
Reviewed 2 weeks ago for a stay in June 2018

We have just arrived home after a wonderful break in Scotland travelling around various places but this little gem in Boat of Garten has been our favourite part of our trip! The cottage is set amongst the most wonderful countryside and the views especially at sunset are incredible! The cottage is perfect for a family with large bedrooms and living spaces. The cottage had everything we needed to enjoy our time there and the beds were very comfy. This cottage has bags of personality and some really beautiful features like the dorma that overlooks the ricer Spey and the old sash windows throughout! The only thing we were looking forward to using was the bbq but this wasn’t in working order however Tesco had everything we needed to enjoy al fresco cooking and dining! Thank you so much to Sue and we can’t wait to come back again! Highly highly recommend!

“Lovely cottage in great location”
Reviewed June 8, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

This is a lovely three-bedroomed cottage about a mile outside Boat Of Garten. It is in a perfect location for exploring the Cairgorms, and is surrounded by beautiful countryside and woodlands. The RSPB Osprey Centre is also about a mile away.

The property itself is comfortable, with everything you will need (although not WiFi if you consider that essential), including washing machine, dishwasher and central heating if you need it. Across the road is the river Spey - the river bank is perfect place to unwind in the evening. We saw a Pine Marten here on our first evening. You can buy fresh eggs from a house 100 yards along the road. There are plenty of woodland trails within walking distance.

Recommended!

“What a lovely week”
Reviewed March 29, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

I was familiar with the area from having visited as a child and bringing my own children. We love it here and have returned with the next generation. The house was perfect for us. Walks along the river and easy access to the mountains for a bit of skiing. Everything we had hoped for. Thank you.

“Great family cottage”
Reviewed February 14, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

A super hideaway yet really close to Aviemore and all the Speyside attractions. We have 3 children under 10 and they thought the cottage was one of the best things about their stay. It is really spacious and the bedrooms (especially the 2 twin rooms upstairs) are huge. Garden is a good size and interesting enough for the children to run around in. It is clean, comfortable and well-equipped although don't expect terribly fashionable décor or furniture. Despite being at heart an old stone cottage it is very cosy and we were there in Winter. Susan, the owner, is very friendly and helpful.

“Perfect choice”
Reviewed February 14, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

My husband and I rented this charming cottage largely because of its location for our wildlife photography trip. It's very convenient for restaurants/supermarket shopping in Aviemore whilst being conveniently set in a very quiet and picturesque area. Very clean, comfortable and cosy, with everything provided that we could possibly have asked for.

I am surprised to find myself saying that we would have welcomed wifi as it's not something that we normally want on a photography trip, but it would have been very useful for researching local places to go where we could expect to find wildlife - despite thinking that we had done all that before leaving home!

We would have no hesitation in recommending this lovely cottage to anyone who welcomes solitude whilst still being within easy reach of local amenities.

“Relaxing yet energising stay in Mullingarroch Cottage”

Very easy to find, excellent directions and very recognisable. Warm and welcoming cottage, with beautiful views across the countryside with horses and cows in, and on further to the Cairngorms. Babbling brook running next to the cottage, and sheep and the River Spey on the other side. Magical place to be.. I have withdrawal from being there already! The cottage is very well equiped and VERY spacious, plenty of room for six people to be comfortable. There was everything there we needed. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would't hesitate in coming back or recommending to anyone. Owner very helpful too regarding key and allowing supermarket delivery. Just brilliant all round! and even the weather was fantastic!! :-)

“Great location and lots of space for families.”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The location is idea. It is close enough to Aviemore to make it easy to get some essentials but far enough that you are away from any big town. Great house for families and great central location for all that Aviemore, Speyside and the surrounding areas have. One improvement could be the addition of wifi. I know this is a plus for some but for me access to the outside world would have been perfect (mobile signal is weak but good enough for a phone call).
