De ruimte
Hello and welcome to what was our home for many years, a beautiful converted croft cottage, situated in an idyllic location enjoying rural views over the Monaliadh mountains and with a vast tundra-like wilderness plateau and magnificent corries at the heart of the region.
The cottage is perfect for family groups, especially those with children. There are no main roads nearby and children can roam through the forest and fields. Sitting in nearly 1 acre of garden, this offers a wild paradise for children to discover local nature.

During lockdown we have been busy upgrading the property. Several rooms have had a fresh coat of paint and the main bedroom now has a new kingsize bed which can be split into 2 singles. We have installed a new, bigger TV, put in a bigger freezer, upgraded the wifi and put in more outside lighting, which is necessary in winter.

The property overlooks the RSPB Insh Marshes and we see deer, red squirrels and large birds of prey nearly every day. The owls hoot at night and with no light pollution on clear nights the stars are amazing.

There are a many great walks and cycle rides which you can start straight from the house and we can also point you in the direction of an amazing choice of local amenities such as the Highland Wildlife Park which is now home to four polar bears and many other endangered species. Glenfeshie is a mere 3/4 miles walk away and this is where scenes from Outlander and The Crown were filmed. Loch an Eilean with its romantic castle in the middle of the loch is also good for more gentle family walks. Those who enjoy a more vigorous exercise can follow trails throughout the mountains or try out the Burma Road. This walk/cycle runs above Aviemore towards Carrbridge and has the best views over the valley. There is also tubing, mountain bike touring, pony trekking and zip wires in the locality.

The nearest shops are just 3 miles away in Kingussie and the tourist centre of Aviemore is 12 miles away for restaurants, cinema, pubs, cosy live music venues, mountain biking, skiing, local beer and gin distilleries and much more. Inverness, Culloden Moor and Loch Ness is about an hour away by car as is Cawdor Castle and the many distilleries of our famous Speyside whisky. A trip by car to Braemar and Balmoral takes you over remote moors and glens.

Any questions please send us a message.

The accommodation consists of:

1 King bedroom - this is also a zip and link bed and can be split to make 2 full size single beds. Let us know when booking if you want 2 singles.

I double Bedroom

1 twin mezzanine bedroom with combed ceiling, perfect for kids (restricted height on 2 sides of the room but still suitable for 2 adults if they don't mind it cosy). The stairs are quite steep so not suitable for unaccompanied small children. We have a stair gate please let us know before you arrive.

We also have a travel cot with mattress and bottom sheet and a high chair.

Large family bathroom with underfloor heating and a large walk-in shower, bath, WC and basin.

Kitchen /Dining/Sitting room: kitchen with cooker, dishwasher, steam oven, large fridge and dining table with seating for 6 adults. TV and DVD player and wood burning stove with a comfortable sofa. There's also a freezer in the shed

Sun Room with underfloor heating, leading off the kitchen with comfy seating for 8 overlooking the garden.

Snug - small sitting room off the entrance porch with seating, table suitable for working and a wood burning stove. Plenty of wood is included.

Entrance porch which has ample room for boots and coats etc.

Additional WC with washbasin and general storage.

Utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer. This has an overhead rail for drying washing or wet outdoor clothes.

Outside:
Patio area and large garden with direct access to woods. This garden is not enclosed.

Pizza oven - this is Frasers pride and joy as he built it himself! (Its needs to be pre-booked as it is wood fired and takes some time to come to temperature) There will be a small charge of £10 per head for this to cover wood as well as authentic italian pizza dough, mozzarella cheese and the Italian tomato base paste. You can then add your own choice of topping.

Outdoor furniture - table and several chairs and bench with some rugs and cushions in the chest in the sunroom.

Parking for 2 cars immediately outside the property

Charger for electric cars

Other things to note: We are beekeepers and have several hives. These are located the far side of our property and should not trouble you though you may notice them being busy on nearby flowers and plants. If you are interested in bees we can arrange for you to be kitted up and we can take a look inside the hives and explain what is going on. (Not available from October to March when the bees are tucked up for winter and we try not to disturb them)

We have only once run out of hot water, when my teenage grandson ran a bath and forgot about it! He certainly learnt the art of mopping that day.

There is plenty of wood for the wood burning stoves. The oil fired central heating is plenty sufficient except in cold winter conditions when we advise you to light the wood burning stoves for extra warmth.

There are board games and jigsaw puzzles and a few toys and book for younger children. We have a selection of maps and books of the local area.

Hi, I'm Bridget and I live with my husband Fraser and our two dogs, Ted and Waffle, in the beautiful Highlands of Scotland. We live in the neighbouring cottage with the bright red roof, which we have recently built. We love to travel, especially the alpine regions of Europe and the islands of the west coast of Scotland. We also love to meet people who travel the world. But our favourite is returning home to the beautiful Caledonian pine trees that surround our house and the long views and sunsets, from the sunroom, to the west and the Monaliadth mountains. Before booking with me make sure to read the reviews of my previous Guests and please contact me if you have any questions
