“Wonderful location and property to match”

Reviewed 21 Feb 2013

Lovely property with great walks on the doorstep with the dogs. Hot tub is great in the snow. Visit the reindeer on the Cairngorms and aviemore shops! Would definitely recommend and the owners are very helpful too

“Wow! What a view!”

Reviewed 1 Mar 2012

This was a relatively last minute booking and represented good value for money. Katchana is in a beautfiul setting; close to centres of activity like aviemore (approx 9 miles) but not too far (in Scottish terms) from Inverness and tourist 'attractions' like Loch Ness, Glencoe, Ben Nevis etc. The property itself felt extremely spacious for 2 adults and a 3 year old and I would imagine that an extra child / adult would still give a feeling of space and not the sense that one is living on top of each other. That said, the bedrooms are quite small. However, the living areas (kitchen diner, dining area and living room) are, in contrast, vast and perfect for relaxing. I agree with one of the other reviews - there are a few areas in the property that aren't as inviting (the 'enclosed balcony' at the end of the lounge / utility space) - this is mainly because they look like they could do with a bit of a tidy up and appear to be an 'afterthought'. Katchana is situated in an breathtakingly beautiful location with oodles of land / view points around it (particularly if you interested in wildlife). It could be made an extremely luxurious property if a little more attention was paid to small details. (eg. replacing light bulbs, better ambient lighting, few more kitchen utensils, better tourist information booklets etc). They're only little things and on balance we absolutely loved our time here.

“We had an amazing time!”

Reviewed 21 Oct 2011

The house was more than what we expected, beautiful setting and the wildlife was amazing.The owner was very helpful and made sure we were happy with everything. Very well situated for all the local attractions in wonderful countryside, one of the best holidays we have had. Our 2 sons aged 11 and 15 loved all the activities and we felt they were fairly priced. We were very lucky with the weather, will definitely like to go back.

Top experience in a wonderful location...views were worth the visit...wildlife was a bonus !!!

“The house is in a fantastic location.”

Reviewed 11 Mar 2011

Stayed at Katchana with friends with children. The house was a great size for 8 and had everything we needed. We loved being right on the lochside and having great walks right outside our door. We went to the Loch Inch Watersports centre a few times where the kids had skiing lessons and we had a glass of wine! Would definitely go back.

“Great Location”

Reviewed 15 Sep 2010

We liked the location and the lovely views although the garden area was not all that suitable for young children being on a steep slope. The lounge area was very spacious and bright but the 'family room' was very small and had very limited storage considering it can sleep 2 adults and two children. Owner needs to clear 'clutter' from garage and window area off lounge as there were potentially dangerous things lying around.Crockery also needs checked over and sliding bathroom door. Great house but needs some TLC to keep up standard.

“wonderful all round holiday experience, fantastic accommodation.”

Reviewed 15 Sep 2010

Really loved our holiday to Kathchana. Directions were perfect, we met the owner, Gavin, who was very friendly and told us about the area, etc., the cottage was over and above our expectations. It was so well kitted out, we wanted for nothing, and the wildlife was superb. Brill!

“Katchana is set in a beautiful and tranquil setting with wonderf”

Reviewed 20 Dec 2009

Katchana is a lovely house in a wonderful, peaceful setting with lovely scenery and lots of wildlife. The house is well equiped with comfortable furniture, good beds and plenty of good towels. It was clean, well heated and there was plenty hot water. There was sufficient car parking for three cars. The house is set on the shores of Loch Insh. A mile from the house, again on the shore of Loch Insh is a visitor centre providing sailing, mountain biking, play parks and a wonderful restaurant serving delicious meals and home baking at very reasonable prices. A few more miles away is the village of Aviemore with lots of visitor attractions and lots of walks of varying distances in the most wonderful scenery. There are also lots of hills to climb and there is skiing in the winter. About ten miles away, in the village of Carrbridge, is the Landmark Visitor Centre. There are so many things to do for all the family, our favourite being the water slides, you would have to spend the whole day there. Our family all loved Katchana, we spent the most wonderful week there and I cannot think of anything that we did not like and will definitely be going back.
