Probably the friendliest place we have ever been to. The home was extremely comfortable especially the king size bed.The area was quiet with stunning views and plenty of wildlife some of which we had never seen before, and plenty of walks for our dog.

We had a very warm scottish welcome from the owners. It is tastefully decorated and very comfrotable. though in a village it is quiet and in the middle of nowhere which was great for us.

Spotlessly clean cottage, with excellent appliances. Pet friendly, only thing to point out is that the garden is not secure for a dog. (It would also have beeen helpful to know that there were stairs up to the front door). A very warm welcome awaited us from the landlord, with a couple of miniatures and some shortbread! The bed was very comfy and large! In spite of inclement weather it was a lovely break, with sightings of deer and lots of other animals; we would go back again, only down side - it was 14 miles from Grantown-on-Spey and 24miles from Ballater (the nearest shoppping centres).
Excellent cottage fantastic location very enjoyable experience

What a lovely cottage warm and cosy and very well positioned down a very quiet lane with a beautiful view from the front window. The owners very kindly left us a welcome gift which we really appreciated especially the whisky. The area has plenty to offer along with breathtaking scenery all around and we were lucky enough to see the olympic torch being carried through the village. We would rate this as the best cottage we have visited and we hope to visit again

Breath taking scenery, fantastic mountain bike trails, the cottage is an ideal place for a cosy comfortable break, I must admit the log fire was wonderful to sit in-front of in the evening, the high power shower was great and nice warm towel from the heated rails were awesome, signal for my I pad on 3G was amazing, Tony the proprietor gave us a warm welcome as well as a small gift of local shortbread and a miniature dram that went down well also he was on hand if we needed any help, I would definitely recommend this cottage to friends and family, the local people were friendly and helpful.

I have rented quite a few places and i must say that it was by far the best, The accommodation was cosy and comfortable it had every amenity you could ever want, loved the fire had it on for 2 nights really nice touch in the lounge. We met the owner on the second day very nice and friendly man he came in and had a chat and a cup of tea, He gave me info on the best whiskey to buy.

The service we received was first class, and the bungalow was comfortable and cosy especially at night with the woodburner. they were plenty of walks in the area, and a nice pub that gives excellent meals and friendly staff. We loved the area and the locals were always friendly and helpful.
