This beautiful holiday house is unique and exceptional; situated on the north side of Lochindorb in the centre of the Highlands of Scotland.

There is a large fully equipped kitchen area, a dining area with a large table, ideal for relaxed dining, and a fantastic seating area where guests can sit and admire the scenery.

In addition to the ruined Wolf of Badenoch Castle on the loch, there is lots in the area for those who have a historical interest. Including Ballindalloch Castle, one of the most excellent surviving examples of a Scottish Baronial Castle that draws in crowds from around the globe to visit this 'Pearl of the North' (22 miles away). There is also the National Trust for Scotland's Brodie Castle, a majestic pink castle with a quirky and fascinating history that would look at home in a Disney princess film (18 miles away).

The more energetic can enjoy the many picturesque walks ranging from the high peaks of the Cairngorms, the National Park is only 8 miles away. Alternatively, you can stroll along the river banks, and golfers can test their skills on the numerous first-class courses in the area. There are distilleries to visit, beaches to walk along, snow sports, water sports and horse riding to be enjoyed and beautiful countryside to be explored, but nothing compares with the sound of lapwings, the smell of warm heather and the total calm and tranquillity to be enjoyed sitting in the garden of this beautiful house. This cottage provides the perfect self-catering holiday accommodation to explore the fantastic Highlands of Scotland.

Tirriemore is in the most amazing location, the views are breathtaking esp. from the sun room. All rooms are well equipped and there is an amazing selection of books and DVDs available. The kitchen has everything for cooking /baking. The laundry room is a bonus. The sofas and beds are very comfortable and we had lovely fluffy towels. The 1 km gatedRead more track and little bridges you cross to get to the property make it very private. If you want peace and tranquility look no further. Hide

If you want remote and peace and quiet this is the place , no neighbours unless you count the sheep the rabbits and grouse and few other types of birds , you have a gorgeous loch with remains of a castle sat in the middle, from the road to the house is 0.8 mile along a bumpy track , the nearest shops are in Grantown-On-Spey about 9 miles away.

Lovely location & view.. walks from door great. But games room is locked, so was disappointed as that had appealed to us. This property was not clean, hairs everywhere, we needed the first aid kit, which was on top of the fridge & it was covered in grease & completely out of date.

We normally go to a one bed cottage with our pooches in the west highlands which also sits on a loch , but wanted something bigger and missed the excitement of exploring new places . Well we found a real gem that catered for all our needs . Tirriemore cottage is absolutely stunning !!!! . The pictures do not do this piece of heaven justice . The kiRead moretchen is fully equipped with everything you need and more ,from crockery , cutlery, cleaning cloths and fluids , candles , glasses, cups , mugs ,,,,,the list is endless. Something Tirriemore has that other cottages have not is character . Oozles and oozles of it ! The loch is amazing and we managed to get out on our boats most days . And the surrounding wildlife reminds you of just how remote you are . No neighbours at all but just a short 15 minute drive to Grantown on Spey which has everything you need for your stay . The Coop is like a tardis and was far better stocked than the tesco metro in Aviemore .The grouse moors surrounding you are peppered with well kept paths that go on for miles and the Dava way walk is a must for railway enthusiasts ( we are train drivers ) . The coast is just 50 min drive . We went to Lossiemouth which was beautiful with miles of sandy beach to explore . For those that just want to chill the cottage is stacked with books dvds and games from previous holiday makers . The air is intoxicating and will send you into a deep slumber from the very first night and the beds are super comfy , coupled with the deafening silence of remoteness and zero sound pollution . We are so glad we found this place and enjoyed our stay so much we booked our stay for next year before we even left . The only con is for us being jack russell owners although the garden is dog proof the surrounding land is host to hundreds of geese ( which are seasonal ) rabbits everywhere and grazing sheep , but after the first day our girls got used to them and just ignored them . The pleasures of having terriers ! Hide

This was our tenth year at Tirriemore and we've already reserved it for next year 2020. We've been to many good places throughout Scotland, but Tirriemore has something special which other places don't have. It is an idyllic place. Each day we came home to piping hot water for 6 adults. This was a big bonus for us as we had walked many miles in theRead more region. Hide

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.
