Whether you are outdoor enthusiasts, a family looking to escape or tourists looking to explore and soak up Scotland's grandeur, Casfuar Cottage will tick your box. An historic highland croft set in a private elevated position and uniquely positioned for easy access to Deeside, Donside and Speyside, Casfuar Cottage is a peaceful, comfortable and spacious retreat from the bustle of daily life. The traditional rustic exterior blends into its hillside position whilst the fresh and light renovated interior offers a modern space in which to absorb the surrounding peacefulness. Designed to accommodate 4 guests the cottage boasts an upgraded, sociable kitchen-dining space off which lies the cosy living room with its log-burner and stunning panoramic views. There is also a sizeable 'boot room' area for drying and storage of all your outdoor gear/bikes/skis. The downstairs family bathroom includes a shower/bath combination whilst the upstairs shower room provides facilities close to the sleeping quarters, made up of a sizeable master bedroom and a large twin room that has space for additional sleeping should it be required. The outside grounds offer plenty space to roam and absorb the surroundings whilst not pretending to be anything other than a natural Scottish hillside. Casfuar Cottage is less than 10 minutes drive from the village of Tomintoul, one of the highest villages in Scotland, with its rustic country pubs, charming shops, a post office & village shop, restaurant, museum, reputable malt whisky shop and an excellent visitor centre. For outdoor enthusiasts the cottage offers the perfect base to access high level hikes afforded by the Cairngorms Massif and lower level walks in the hills around Tomintoul, notably on the Crown Estate's numerous way-marked paths (including the Glenlivet Estate), the Ladder Hills, the Hills of Cromdale and the Spey Way which has a spur running in/out of Tomintoul. The Lecht Ski Centre is a quick drive up the glen for those wanting to enjoy its winter sports offerings. And mountain bikers won't be disappointed either as the Glenlivet Estate's purpose built trails are a short drive away too. Families looking to entertain the kids after the family friendly outdoor activities on the doorstep have been exhausted can easily day trip to the Spey Valley, visiting Aviemore to enjoy all it has to offer as well as the RZSS Highland Wildlife Park in Kingussie and the Landmark Centre in Carrbridge. And for tourists looking for a taste of Highland Scotland, the cottage is uniquely situated just off the beautiful 'rollercoaster' Snow Roads scenic route, allowing for access to Royal Deeside, Donside and Speyside, and all the castles, golf courses and history they serve up, in 30 minutes or less. And not forgetting being on the doorstep of the infamous Malt Whisky Trail, the North Coast 500 trail you couldn't ask for a better location. OTHER INFORMATION GUESTS WITH CHILDREN - A selection of plastic plates, bowls and cups are provided - 'Small' size cutlery - High Chair (Please contact us so we leave it out for you) - Travel Cot (Please contact us so we leave it out for you) - A selection of children's toys/puzzles/books - Several folding stools for reaching sinks etc - Bath with hinged screen for easy access - Toilet close to bedrooms - Night Light (it can get very dark with no light pollution!)

How to get there
Casfuar Cottage is located in the Cairngorm National Park, a 5 minute drive outside Tomintoul, one of the highest villages in Scotland. It is approximately a 1 hr 30 minute drive from Aberdeen, just over an hour driving from Inverness, and roughly 3 hours from both Glasgow and Edinburgh on a combination of motorways and the A9. It is a remote area so a car is required. The cottage is approximately 5-7 mins drive along a quiet private forest/farm track which is uneven in places. We are the only cottage in this wonderful peaceful location.
