Everything was cleaned and ready with all the amenities and things we needed.
The home was spacious, attractively decorated and very comfortable. Views of both countryside and the passing trains make this property special and quite unique.

Excellent very quirky accommodation. Well equipped holiday cottage. Fantastic views when having breakfast. Interesting to see the trains going through, but were not disturbed by them. Local amenities very good, lots of great places to visit.

We had a wonderful holiday in the Station House and enjoyed also the open Museum at Newtonmore/Kinussie where there was so much to see, including the school house and the farm, watching the sheep being sheared. We got to know the drivers on the trains, who always hooted us when they went by. It was like re-inacting the 'Railway Children'.
Overall, we had a very interesting holiday.
A really lovely week in every way.

A week at the "Old Station" is really a great experience especially if you like trains. The accommodation is spacious and comfortable with lots of features and historic pictures of the station. It is a pleasant walk to the village where there are a few good places to eat. We all enjoyed our visit to the "Scottish Folk Museum" situated just outside the village and a walk round the " Wildcat Trail" is a must. All in all we have no complaints at all and enjoyed every minute of our week.
