Description

It is not often one can have such a sense of complete isolation, peace and tranquility whilst surrounded by the beauty of moorland and highland loch but Tirriemore provides all this and more. This wonderful holiday house is absolutely unique and very special; situated on the north side of Lochindorb in the centre of the Highlands of Scotland, it has fantastic views over the loch with its island and ruined castle, and over the grouse moors to the Cairngorms beyond. The steading has been imaginatively restored to provide outstanding and flexible accommodation with a fantastic living area which maximises on the spectacular views. There is a large fully equipped kitchen area, a dining area with large table, ideal for relaxed dining, and a fantastic seating area where guests can sit and admire the scenery. A couple of steps leads down to a snug area with comfortable sofas and a wood burning stove, whilst the gallery is reached by a spiral staircase and provides more seating with a useful sofa bed. The three comfortable bedrooms are spacious and bright and in the end wing is a large room with an additional twin bedroom with basin curtained off, and also a ping pong table, miniature snooker table, garden furniture and the spare log store.

This is a wonderful area of Scotland no matter what your interests are. The house itself is surrounded by grouse moor and with the River Spey close by, not to mention brown trout fishing on the doorstep in Lochindorb itself, sportsmen will love this house. In addition to the ruined Wolf of Badenoch’s Castle on the loch, there are lots in the area for those who have an historical interest including Ballindalloch Castle, The National Trust for Scotland’s Brodie Castle and Cawdor Castle, in addition to numerous Pictish sites. The more energetic can enjoy the many picturesque walks ranging from the high peaks of the Cairngorms to strolls along pretty river banks, and golfers can test their skills on the numerous first class courses in the area. There are distilleries to visit, beaches to stroll along, snow sports, water sports and horse riding to be enjoyed and wonderful countryside to be explored, but nothing compares with the sound of the lapwings, the smell of warm heather and the total calm and tranquility to be enjoyed sitting in the garden of this wonderful house. Tirriemore provides the most perfect self catering holiday accommodation to explore the wonderful Highlands of Scotland.

    Tirriemore reviews
    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 kitchen 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 !
    Mr Shrieves - June 2019
    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 the region.
    Mr Kean - March 2019
    truly a stunning house everything you could want is supplied like well equipped kitchen .big bedrooms with comfortable beds nice cosy lounge with log fire stunning views from conservatory over the loch lovely secluded garden thats walled off so no need to constantly watching dog we had great weather so spent time down on little beach will deafinatly be back next year as its so peaceful and quiet
    Mrs Speirs - September 2018
    Very spacious house with everything you need. Beautiful views, we loved the bunnies all around the house. The house was clean. Only the road to the house was a bit of a wobble so you need a good car.
    Mr And Mrs Hamstra - July 2018
    I wish I could relay adequately what a beautiful and special place Tirriemore is. The house itself is amazing ... just like the pictures. Cute little snug with a fireplace and large dining and living areas. We had such a memorable time walking the roads around the moor, visiting the nearby coffee shop, driving off everyday to a new adventure in this amazing and gorgeous country. It is about 15-20 minutes to Grantown on Spey ... which is where we did most of our shopping. The butcher there is great as is the Co-Op. We went to Aviemore and were disappointed... we liked the shopping in Grantown on Spey better! Just everything about this area is intriguing. We made it to the island and the Lochindorb Castle ruins by braving the water on a blow up mattress we bought in Inverness ...the history there is unbelievable. Sheep, grouse, geese, ducks , birds of every sort, even saw a stag ...You can’t go wrong staying here if you love the outdoors, nature and history. Would only stay here and no place else if we ever return to Scotland .. and I’m sure we will. I can see why Tirriemore has so many return visitors. Loved it !!
    Mr Johnson - June 2018
    Quite possibly one of the most relaxing holiday cottages we've ever booked Set in a beautiful quiet setting. Great kitchen and lounge areas, comfy beds, superb shower. We chose Tirriemore partly for the dog friendly aspect - massive secure garden and great nearby walks. Have stayed in many cottages in the highlands, this is without doubt one of the best - I would not hesitate to return or let friends and family know about Tirriemore.
    Mr Davidson - April 2018
    One of the nicest holiday houses we have been to, and we`ve been to a few in Scotland over the years, the views are stunning. The house lacks for nothing, its warm throughout the day from the storage heaters and at night the wood burner is fantastic. Our 2 dogs loved the large garden. Only moan was the shower, no matter how slowly I turned the temperature control, it kept cutting off.
    Mrs Thomson - March 2018
    After a lovely few days in April 2017, we stayed for a week this time. The house was even lovelier than we remembered, with simply stunning views from every window. The housekeeper and owner were very helpful when we had an issue with the oven on the first evening, which was quickly resolved. Thank you Tirriemore, we will be back!
    Mrs Brookes - October 2017
    Lovely setting, stunning views and very tranquil. Great accommodation, plenty of room & well equiped. We had everything we needed for a great break (minus the sunshine).
    Mr Odell-rourke - September 2017
    We were a party of five adults and one dog. We had a great time at Tirriemore, the setting is simply idyllic and so quiet. The house is warm and inviting, had everything that you possibly need and more. The kitchen had every conceivable kitchen gadget. Bathrooms and toilets ample for us all. The cosy den was great and we had use of the log fire on a couple of cooler nights and the sitting room with its fab views was where we sat most of the time. We walked, enjoyed the beach and enjoyed the walled garden (especially Monty the dog) It was certainly a restful week, the weather was good to us but even when it wasn't we could watch the weather roll towards us from the sitting room. The wi fi was a bit iffy through the day but seemed to work after 12 until breakfast time. This was not necessarily a bad thing as it made us switch of devices etc. I would go back again, definitely :-)
    Ms Biscotti - August 2017
    Amongst the best holidays we have had during the last 20 years. The house is very comfortable and cosy, very well equipped. The location is extraordinary with a privileged view over the Loch and the surroundings. We are seriously thinking about coming back in a few years.
    Mr And Mrs Kircher - July 2017
    This was our second visit to Tirriemore and it lived up to all our expectations again. Weather was a bit cool and grey but never kept us inside. Family holiday plus our dog. Young ones climbed a couple of Munroes. We fished a little (unsuccessfully), had a home made boat race, a treasure hunt, read books, had a BBQ, a pool tournament, ran, finished a Uni assignment, swam in loch (once briefly!) and ate and slept a lot. Superb house in every way. We very much hope to be back again soon. Thank you very much.
    Dr Rolland - July 2017
    Cosy AND Large are two words which you don't often see together when describing rented accommodation, but Tirriemore is both these things. The real magic, however, is on spectacular display outside the many windows; wildlife galore! We wished we'd bought our binoculars. We are a young family of 4, with a doggie, and this house was ideal. Wonderful spot & house.
    Mr Murray Lindsay - April 2017
    On arrival, the panoramic view from the lounge at Tirriemore is simply stunning. Then there's the abundance of wildlife - grouse calling from the hillside; skylarks singing; greylag geese flying past the front window; snipe drumming; lapwings in full song. I cannot think of a more peaceful place to be. We've stayed there 6 times now and we'll be back next year. Jon Kean
    Mr Kean - March 2017
    As others have said in previous reviews, photos don't do justice to this beautiful location - the reality of the ever-changing vista around the loch needs to be experienced to be understood. We were lucky to get truly exceptional late-summer weather which showed the heather in all its subtle hues and ensured we walked for hours every day, never tiring of the sensational scenery. The house itself is well-equipped and has a lovely homely feel to it. We went armed with lots of books but found ourselves reading instead about the Wolf of Badenoch and browsing through books to suit every conceivable taste. Our two Beagles had a ball as well as both the house and the garden truly were spacious and dog-friendly. On the one occasion I used the car over that whole week, it was to take a trip to Cromarty where we took a dolphin-watching trip with Ecoventures Cromarty - I couldn't recommend them highly enough. Again we were very fortunate with the weather and the dolphins - mums and babies played happily around the boat before they all went fishing around us - but even if the dolphins are less prominent, the 2-hour RIB tour of the Cromarty Firth is great value. Wee warning: after reading earlier reviews on here, I arranged for a Sainsbury grocery shop to be delivered on our first afternoon unaware that Sainbury no longer deliver to the property. (They gave no indication of this when I placed the order.) We were VERY fortunate that the lovely driver went out of his way to drive up and down the opposite lochside hoping to catch out attention - which he did - and we were then able to go and meet him and take receipt of our food. If you do opt for an online delivery, be aware that you will have to meet the driver some distance from the house and transfer your shopping into your own vehicle. If you're looking for a peaceful break, Tirriemore is IDEAL. For us, the icing on the cake was the clear skies which allowed us to see both the Milky Way AND the Northern Lights.
    Mrs Donaldson - September 2016
    The pictures online just don't so the breathtaking views justice! From every window there are different (and always changing) views of the loch, the ruined castle, the sheep, geese, grouse moor and passing weather. The house itself is furnished to a very high standard and every small detail has been well thought out. The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need for some serious cooking and the house layout lends itself perfectly to relaxed entertaining. The beds are very comfortable, with a high standard of linens and towels. All in all, a wonderful short stay - and we will definitely be back!
    Mrs Brookes - April 2016
    We have now had several holidays at Tirrriemore and each has been great with different weather experiences that you watch from the fantastic panoramic views from the lounge windows. The cottage is warm and well equipped with an enclosed garden to play ball for our city dog. We arranged an on line shop from Sainsbury in Nairn and visited Logie Steading which has great walks lunch and shopping including a wide rang of whisky and gin!
    Mrs Orr - April 2016
    I have stayed at Tirriemore several times now and each time I leave I feel rather sad. The house has a unique setting for my friends and I in that it is very near a high class Grouse moor. For me personally, it is a dream place with many qualities I would look for while on holiday. Nothing was too much trouble for the owner and the house caretaker. It's such a peaceful place to stay and the wildlife surrounding Tirriemore is simply outstanding. I came away feeling really refreshed and you cannot beat the country air!!
    Mr Kean - March 2016
    Fantastic week in a house that is first class, warm comfortable and the views are very special.
    Mr Macnicol - March 2016
    Superb level of comfort. Appreciated the quality linen, comfortable seating and well equipped kitchen, beautifully appointed and warm. Really loved being able to have our well behaved dog with us. Lived up to the description of its setting which is stunning. A place of great peace and tranquility. Would however be reluctant to share with 6 other adults given the configuration of the bathroom facilities as we are used to personal space in this respect. Would hope to be able to consider returning , we loved it.
    Mrs James - March 2016
    We have stayed in Tirremore more than once and each time we have been blessed with sunshine. I think the cottage may be a bit bleak if it rained consistently as you really are in the middle of nowhere. This means no white light so the stars at night are brilliant. The cottage is well equipt and the electric heaters are efficient. the wood burning stove a welcome addition. Sainsburys in Inverness deliver groceries well worth organising!
    Mrs Orr - April 2015
    Ein wundervolles Haus, dessen Ausstattung keine Wünsche offen lässt. Die einsame Lage am Lochindorb ist traumhaft, die Ausblicke bei wechselnden Lichtern und Farben über die weite, einmalig schöne Landschaft sind mit Worten nicht zu beschreiben. Dieses Haus ist ein Juwel, ein Kleinod, in dem wir einen unserer schönsten Urlaube verbracht haben. Vielen Dank an alle, die dieses wunderbare Erlebnis möglich gemacht haben. Translation - A wonderful house, the equipment leaves nothing to be desired. The secluded location on Lochindorb is gorgeous, the views with changing lights and colors of the vast, beautiful landscape can not be described with words. This house is a gem, a jewel, where we spent one of our best vacations. Thanks to all who have made this wonderful experience possible.
    Mrs. Irmscher - July 2014
    Good as usual but the TV DVD player was not working, annoying for some of us.
    Mr Macnally - June 2014
    We've stayed at Tirriemore 3 years running and have booked it already for 2015. It's a dream place.
    Mr Kean - March 2014
    Wouldn't hesitate to return to Tirriemore - the house had everything you could possible need. The views from the property where wonderful. Walks along the shores of Lochindorb where great. We were left to our own devices which is how we like it - although we where joined by a herd of cows the second week but they were no bother. It would be nice to see a visitors book in the property. These are always a great source of interest and it helps visitors who are not familiar with the area to have a few ideas of what to do (there where leaflets available in the property but you can't beat a visitors book). Culbin Forest was a great place to spend time. We made 3 separate visits completing a different walk each time and it was wonderful - highly recommended.
    Mr Cook - September 2013
    The farmhouse is extemely well equipped and very comfortable with a view to die for. I give an account on walk i did one morning. On the second morning of our stay the weather was perfect and my early morning walk was a treat. The loch was still and reflective and one could sense that breeding was in full swing. Two male Snipe were drumming overhead, giving a contrasting background tone to the Skylark’s song. On the far side of the loch a Cuckoo was calling and although it was over three hundred yards away the call travelled over the smooth surface of the loch so that it sounded right next door. A Meadow Pipit hopped out onto some grey -willow shrub and started to call and was immediately challenged by a Sedge Warbler who had a territory in the bush. This little battle was overheard by a male Reed Bunting in another willow bush fifty yards away and he joined the chorus. Two Common Sandpipers were piping to each other on the shoreline. As if this were not enough activity to keep me interested a pair of Red Grouse casually walked across my path, and I was still within 100 yards of the farm house! From inside the house I was able to add Black-throated Diver, Osprey, Short-eared Owl and Great Skua which added to the others to make a most unusual garden list!
    Mr Trollope - June 2013
    We had a fabulous week here. Arrived to frozen loch but a warm house. Views were spectacular all week as the loch melted and the sun shone. The house was extremely comfortable and had every we needed and a great deal more. We walked, climbed, fished, read and eat. My son caught a beautiful little wild brown trout in the loch and we loved watching the geese and black grouse. The dog had to be chased out from under the dining table when it was time to go home as she had such a wonderful holiday too. Perfect in every way.
    Dr Rolland - March 2013
    Such a peaceful location, secluded with breathtaking scenery. The house was so comfortable with so many thoughtful details. It was a home from home. Lots of thoughtful details such as games, cards, candles,  wood pile and books! We were sad to leave.
    Mrs Scott - April 2012
    This cottage has everything we were looking for. The location was stunning. The wildlife was breathtaking. This cottage was the best we have stayed in, and we want to book it for next year if possible.
    Mr Kean - March 2012
    Incredible setting for this spacious, well appointed and comfortable cottage. Will definitely stay again.
    Mr Cuddon - October 2011
    The place was more than we could have hoped for. It is a terrific property making for an unforgettable holiday. The photos of the house are great, but they can't capture the magic of the place. Needless to say, we loved every minute of our stay. We would go back in a heartbeat, and hope that opportunity arises sometime again. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The solarium is to die for. The kitchen makes great chefs out of anyone using the facilities! Friends from Banchory came for a visit and were blown away.
