The truly unique, beautiful and peaceful location is what we believe makes Braenedin such a special place.
This special home is situated up a track on Torehill by Tulloch, near Nethy Bridge there is an abundance of native Scottish wildlife on the doorstep with red squirrels feeding outside the cottage along with many woodland birds. We invite you to keep the birdfeeders stocked. Badgers are frequent visitors to the garden.
Wonderful walks start outside the door either to woodlands of Torehill at the rear or the Abernethy forest Cairngorm mountains in front.
The securely fenced garden also encloses the remains of another building from the historical community which makes an interesting feature.
Loch Garten and the famous RSPB Osprey Centre are a 25 minute walk away, or a quicker cycle. The Abernethy Forest nature reserve; Tulloch Moor and nearby Cairngorms offer fun walking or cycling days out.
Information on walks, bird-watching, crofting life and other activities and attractions in the area is available at the house with more details to be found in the new and informative Nethybridge visitor centre.
Strathspey also has fine golf courses, fishing and good restaurants.
The ski resorts of Cairngorm and Lecht are also close by.
Aviemore is around 15 to 20 minutes drive away.
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.
