This detached, pet friendly, timber cottage which is built on stilts sleeps 6 people in the village of Laggan which featured in the BBC drama series, Monarch Of The Glen, and is in the heart of The Cairngorms National Park. This attractive property is quite quirky because it's constructed wholly of wood and rests on the edge of a hill. This house offers some of the best views of Scotland around and you can clearly see both Ben Alder and Craig Meagaidh mountains from the property. The house is light and airy and has a double-height ceiling in the open plan living area. The open plan living area comprises of a large sitting area, fully fitted... modern kitchen, eating area and an additional seating area with large windows from which you can see the Scottish mountains and stretching landscape. The property has 2 twin bedrooms, 1 double bedroom with en suite bathroom, a log stove in the sitting area and a large decked veranda.
Amenities: Underfloor central heating with log burning stove in sitting room. Bottle gas cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, TV, DVD player, WiFi. Fuel, power and starter pack of fuel for the log burning stove inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Cot and highchair available on request. Off road parking for 2 cars. Raised open decked area and open grounds. One well-behaved dog welcome at a £15 charge. Sorry, no smoking. Shop 8 miles, pub 20 mins walk.
Region: From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain’s best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.
Town: The Cairngorms National Park is not only the United Kingdom's biggest National Park it is undoubtedly one of our most spectacular. The quiet village of Laggan is right in the middle of the Cairngorms National Park and is flanked by both the Monadhliath and Grampian mountains so it's no surprise that there are plenty of opportunities to get close to nature in this stunning part of the country. Red deer, red squirrels, golden eagles and rare Osprey all call Laggan home. For those that like to get their adrenaline pumping there's the Laggan Wolftrax bike trails close by and for those that like to take it a bit easier there's walking, fishing, bird-watching, golf, horse and pony riding and cycling.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

The Laggan Drey is an outstanding place to spend your vacation. The Drey itself is beautiful, has everything that you would need and is very cosy with the wood burning fire going (needed for a winter visit!).
The area itself is majestic in its beauty - just follow the road in front of the Drey into the mountains and witness the herds of deer to see what I mean.
I can not recommend staying here highly enough - we were fortunate to enjoy a little snow while we were there which made everything even more beautiful.

What a wonderful time we had at The Drey! The owners had everything ready for us when we arrived (well past dark), even tea and biscuits for the morning. We loved being able to wake at our leisure, look at the map, and take off in our car. The central location of The Drey allowed us to see quite a lot of Scotland in our week long stay.
The house itself was perfect for our family of five: a girl's room, a boy's room, and a parent room. We enjoyed evening fires and family games from the "stash" provided in the house.
The washer, drier, and dish washer were also a plus.
Our last evening at The Drey found us out on the deck looking at the most beautiful and complete rainbow we'd ever seen. It was a lovely end to a lovely trip!
A perfect cottage holiday experience

The cottage was set in an idyllic location, with local amenities a short walk away and an array of activities to experience within a short mileage. The cottage itself was perfect with a stunning view, particularly at dusk and dawn. Furthermore, the cottage was a lot bigger than expected. A fantastic holiday experience.

Super time in a wonderful part of the Highlands. Snow made it difficult to reach but it was worth it when we got there.

Contact with Sykes Cottages staff was easy and friendly.
On arrival at the cottage the owner met us and the welcome was great with home made shortbread waiting to be eaten with a lovely cup of tea. The home was really wonderful with everything that you needed - well above the average (and we should know)! We were not idsappointed with the location and the little shop at the bottom of the road was amazing - catering for about absolutely everything. Very friendly as well.
We liked everything so what's not to like!
A Beautiful View

This was my first trip to Scotland, and I hope not my last. Laggan Drey was beautiful as well as spectacular scenery. I can't imagine anyone staying there and not liking it. It was also close to a lot of villages that we could visit in a day so that made it even better, and of course we had several requests from home to bring something back from the distilleries. Couldn't miss that while I was in Scotland, could I?
