A traditional cottage located on a private estate near Nethy Bridge, great for those who love the great outdoors and who wish to explore Speyside and the Highlands.

Set in a fantastic area of the National Park that is renowned for a range of activities – including walking, hiking, stalking, fishing and mountain biking – there are plenty of activities available for all of the family to enjoy. The estate itself is the home of plentiful wildlife, such as deer, pine martens and red squirrels. For keen whisky enthusiasts, the property is situated close to the Speyside Whisky Trail, and for those looking for something faster-paced then the outdoor activity centre near Grantown on Spey offers thrill-seekers the chance to enjoy the likes of white water rafting, canoeing and abseiling, plus much more.

The property entrance leads into a cloakroom/porch, which is great for leaving your muddy boots after a day of exploring. The lounge is traditionally furnished and contains a Smart TV with a cosy wood-burner, allowing guests to settle around the fire as you wind down in the evenings. The kitchen/dining room at the opposite side of the cottage contains another wood-burner as well as a solid wood table with seating for up to four guests. The kitchen itself is well-equipped for cooking up a storm and contains an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, coffee machine and washer/dryer. The bathroom with bath and separate shower is of ample size and the perfect place to relax after a day of exploring. Upstairs, you will find both of the bedrooms one double, and one super-king-size zip-and-link (which can be made into a twin on request) which have views of the estate surrounding the cottage. Please note that the ceiling height throughout the cottage is lower than modern building standards – the first-floor ceiling is under 2 metres high, and the ground floor is exactly 2 metres on the ground floor due to the age of this traditionally built cottage.

Outside, the garden is open and mainly grassed, with the exception of the gravel driveway that has more than enough space for two cars. There are rolling views of the hills and beyond, making it a peaceful spot to enjoy a coffee in the peace and quiet.

  • 2 bedrooms – 1 super-king- size zip-and-link (which can be made into a twin on request) and 1 double
  • 1 bathroom with separate shower and WC
  • Electric oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, coffee machine and washer/dryer
  • Welcome pack provided 2 wood-burners – (the first basket of logs provided)

  • Open lawn garden
  • Private parking on driveway for 2 cars
  • 3 miles to pub, small shop, restaurants
  • Please note that the ceiling height on the first floor is less than 2metres and the ground level ceiling height is 2 metres throughout

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
