A warm and inviting, two bedroom cottage just a short drive to Kingussie and Aviemore.
Recently restored to a high standard, the cottage is a great little holiday retreat any time of year; toasty warm in the winter with a fantastic garden, with alfresco dining and fire pit to enjoy in the summer.
A great holiday destination - perfect for lazing away the afternoon with a new book, or unwinding after an outdoor adventure (of which there are many, in every direction).
Living/dining room Wood panelled with a huge wood burning stove, the living room is delightfully warm in the cold winter months, a real treat and great for relaxation after a day in the hills.
We have provided you with an array of books about the local area covering topics about the Cairngorms and outdoor pursuits such as mountain climbing and bird watching along with an eclectic collection of films and board games.
The living room boasts a 40 inch, wi-fi enabled smart TV, with Netflix, Spotify, catch up TV, DVD, and BOSE stereo, with bluetooth, radio and line in, to connect music players / laptops.
For dining, set back from the fire, there is a solid oak, Edwardian table for 4. Kitchen The handmade kitchen has a rural farmhouse feel to it, combining the industrial sense of the railway with the serene surroundings of the Insh Marshes; a polished concrete worktop and vintage tiles, inlaid with stainless steel fittings, between beach cabinets and shelving.
With underfloor heating and fantastic views across the RSPB nature reserve it is a delightful space in which to prepare your meals.
Everything youd expect in a modern kitchen is nicely tucked in here; dishwasher, fridge-freezer, separate wine-cooler, 4 way ceramic hob, double oven / grill, micro-wave.
