The newly, completely refurbished cottage encompasses the remains of a lime kiln. It’s been designed to make your stay as cosy and comfortable as possible whilst making the most of the amazing views. We’ve used locally sourced products in the refurbishment where possible.
There are 2 double bedrooms and 1 twin bedroom and a bunk room with the comfiest beds we could find. A cot is also available.
One end of the house has a family bathroom with a large shower cubicle, bath, loo and sink and the opposite side of the house has a large luxury shower room with loo and sink.
There is a newly installed, environmentally friendly Airsource heating system as well as a highly effective wood burner in the living room.
The brand new kitchen is fully fitted to the highest standard. This room has stunning views across the fields over Tulloch and down the Spey Valley.
The kitchen is open plan to a large dining/living room with a wood burning stove, and the chimney features some of the wall from the original lime kiln building. There are breathtaking views over the valley to the Cairngorms with double sliding doors giving access onto the well positioned deck.
The utility room has a washing machine and tumble dryer as well as space for boots and coats.
The Cottage has a routinely inspected private spring water supply. Chlorine-free and perfect if you like it in a dram!
The house is secluded 250 metres up a bumpy farm track. Please note that this has been known to get snowbound in winter in which case it may be necessary to walk from the road. Parking is available at the top of the track with plenty of space to store bikes, skis etc in the garage.
It was great to have some returning guests from May, when the guidelines changed, as well as visitors who had shifted their holidays from last year.
Snippets from the guestbook below show how much everyone was delighted to be somewhere new; and Braenedin, the Spey Valley and the Cairngorms didn't disappoint. We love reading these for loads of reasons; they give us a warm glow, to check what wildlife has been spotted and getting new ideas for walks or activities to try.
The Scottish Government stated that the guidelines on self-catering will change from Friday 25 September 2020. There is now a one household restriction in self-catering properties, in-line with the restrictions in private homes in Scotland.
