Holiday Cottages In The Cairngorms

This National Park is a well kept Scottish secret. It may be a little more out the way than the Lake District; but at twice the size it’s well worth travelling for. With skiing, plentiful wildlife and imposing castles there are endless possibilities of things to see and do here.

Don’t forget to pack your camera. With glistening locks, winding paths and impressive castles, the scenery is breathtaking. If you love the idea of a snowball fight in summer, take a trip to the Cairngorm plateau! Even in August there is still a little snow at the top. Mountain biking and walking are popular activities here, but for something a little different take a trip down the Malt Whiskey trail. The Cairngorms really is an outdoor adventurer's paradise.

    "The cottage has the potential to be lovely but unfortunately it is shabby looking and drab. It was not particularly clean, with dust and cobwebs, there were dirty dishes put away in the cupboards but there was no washing up liquid or dishwasher tablets, so we only had hot water to clean them. The fridge has a large rust hole in the bottom and it leaked water across the kitchen floor. The freezer was badly iced up and needed a good clean, so we did not use it. The dishwasher worked after some persuasion each time and the outer casing is breaking up and cracked. Towels are not provided, which is very unusual these days, and unfortunately we had a heavy rainfall on the Wednesday morning and the utility area/downstairs toilet was flooded and we had to spend the morning mopping it up and the only way we could prevent more water coming in the back door was to use our own towels to roll up and place at the bottom of the door. The driveway was flooded for a while after the rain and we could not get outside without getting our feet and trouser bottoms wet. The washing machine did not rinse or spin when we came to wash the towels afterwards and it was impossible to get them washed and dried for further use, so we had to go to Tesco in Inverness to buy more bath towels for our use there. There was a tumble drier which has a split hose, but I never tumble dry towels, especially when soaking wet.The cooker was good but a couple of the pans were badly out of shape and the handle on one was very loose. The kitchen knives were quite dangerous as the handles were deteriorated to the point of falling apart when using the knife. The bathroom was OK although the shower is very poor and the temperature eratic. The boiler and all radiators were on which made the place very hot, during the hot weather, and we had to turn off all the radiators. All in all, it reminded us of holidays taken in the 60s where the furniture was old utility issued after the war and even the lamps couldn't stand up straight! I must say we come up to Scotland two or three times a year, renting cottages most times, and this is the first that we have stayed in where there is absolutely no guest shower/soap/shampoos in the bathrooms, no washing up liquid or where there is a dishwasher, no dishwasher tablets for the week, no towels, not one refuse bag in the bins, or in the cupboards, apart from just the one in the main kitchen bin, which was very full by the end of the week. We put the wheelie bins out as instructed in the house book, but they were not emptied. There were two general refuse wheelie bins outside, both absolutely full to the brim, with hardly any room for our rubbish, and they smelled awful. The garden chairs were supposed to be white plastic but they were filthy and stained with something which would not come off easily. The BBQ was full of old ashes and we were not inclined to use it. All in all I have to say, this was the worst cottage we have rented in more than three decades. The cottage itself could be lovely and is in a lovely place. It is a shame the owners can't spend some money on bringing it up to a decent standard, considering the rental is high compared with some, far better places we have stayed at. I see there was a similar review back in May by someone called 'Melissa' to which the owners responded saying they were visiting the property soon and would deal with her comments. Clearly they did not address any of her comments, apart from ensuring there were sufficient lightbulbs in the fittings! I would certainly recommend that anyone thinking of renting this cottage should check that the owners have now spent some money on it and at least installed decent working equipment. It costs only a couple of pounds to supply the basics like enough washing up liquid/tablets/bin liners/towels etc. for a week as all other owners do."

    "A beautiful cottage but in serious need of updating, upon arrival the caretaker came over and she was very nice but we told her that there was only a few light bulbs which she told us had been taken by previous renters :-O she didn't replace the missing ones, the front room is extremely cold even with the heating on and lighting the fire, the small window in the front room needs replacing as when it is windy you can hear the noise coming through the window and it howls, the tv is small and the sofas are passed their best, you sit down and sink to the floor and have real trouble getting up also when we moved the cushions there was so much debris we could tell that it hadn't been hoovered for a while, the only comfortable seat is the arm chair which is hard when there is 4+ of you.The dining room is the only room in the house that is warm and able to accomodate comfort. The kitchen is ok even though the pots and pans have seen better days and there was food left in the freezer!!!! the washing machine and tumble dryer are a nice touch but we had to use pegs to keep the hose for the tumble dryer attached as it was badly broken.The bathroom upstairs was fine apart from the razor point didn't work.The bedrooms were very uncomfortable and the bedding really leaves a lot to be desired, the quilts are like something from the 80's, the upstairs bedroom with the double bed was extremely uncomfortable and you could feel springs digging in your hips, the 2 single beds in the other upstairs bedroom were very uncomfortable and the pillows were flat.we own a property in the USA and rent it out to people on holiday, we have agents out there who take care of it for us and they supply cleaners who clean etc, also we supply towels and bedding which on a regular basis are replaced/updated and anyproblem large or small the agents sort out even replacing light bulbs, I don't know if the owners are aware of the problems at S22661 and hope they read this and take it as constructive critisism.This is a beautiful cottage in a lovely locations but really needs updating."

    "We were a party of 4 walking buddies (male age 50+).There were no directions to the cottage provided and due to some dodgy navigation (our fault entirely) some of our party spent a long time hunting in the wrong village. The cottage is actually quite easy to find however on the main street of the village of Boat of Garten opposite the green and about 75 yard from the holiday park/ shop. We had some difficulty contacting the owners to arrange to pick up keys but eventually it was sorted. We never yet met anyone though as the key was simply left for us to collect.The cottage is an old building and has mostly everything you would need. The furnishings are in keeping with the type of building so don't expect modern. We found them perfectly adequate and comfortable and the place was clean enough {we are a party of 4 blokes so no serious inspections were carried out ;-) }There is plenty of space and 4 bedrooms (1 double, 2 twin and 1 with bunks). Lounge, kitchen (not a huge kitchen but fine) and dining room. One upstairs bathroom (toilet, bath and shower cubicle) and one downstairs toilet. Additional washing areas would have been a bonus and larger parties may need to consider this.No towels were provided so pack your own.Garden with patio and a small shed with a barbecue are all available. Off road parking in the drive for a couple of cars and on street parking outside shouldn't be an issue.The cottage is well situated and met our needs but some small improvements (better communication, extra shower room and providing towels) would make quite a difference). That said we felt it was decent value for our group and served us well and we would be happy enough to return. Not a patch on Silverglades in Aviemore though so it wouldn't be our first choice."

    "We spent Christmas at S22661 and were delighted with our choice. The cottage was lovely. Starting with the large wood-panelled hallway and staircase, to the living rooms with open fires. Some of the dining furniture has been updated since the photos on the website. All the bedrooms were a good size with plenty of storage. The kitchen was extremely well equipped. We dined in every day and found the fridge and separate freezer gave us plenty of space for our weeks-worth of Tesco delivery. The oven was perfectly capable of cooking our large Christmas day feast. The absolute only thing I couldn't find were champagne glasses (and that isn't a complaint but an observation). They really did have everything else we needed. The bedding was ample for the -7 degree nights and the central heating and log fires kept us cosy.Boat of Garten is a gorgeous little village with a beautiful expanse of woodland right behind the main row of houses on the high street that runs on for miles and miles. The deer were often spotted on my morning runs and the scenery was more than I could have asked for. Aviemore is only a short drive away and the nearest ski resort (with amazing sledging as well) only a 20-30 minute drive away. The caretaker of the cottage was very friendly. We had very good pre-arrival communication and a Christmas tree and some decorations were even put up for us. It does say in the cottage details that the caretaker only has a limited time to prepare between guests and that guests are kindly requested to leave the cottage as they would like to find it. We certainly found it in perfectly acceptable order. We have had an amazing Christmas thanks to a quality cottage in a magical location."

    "An extremely satisfactory holiday home: The kitchen was equipped with absolutely everything we needed (as people who cook when on holiday), and all of it was of a good standard in good condition. There was enough crockery and glassware so that we did not need to run the dishwasher after every meal (only slight niggle - not really enough cutlery for 5 to avoid having to handwash after one meal). The house was also well supplied with household consumables (dishwasher tablets,cling film, starter tea, sugar, coffee etc). I have stayed in many holiday cottages and none of the above this can be taken as a given - this place was exceptional.The house was warm and comfortable with every useful facility (utility room, conservatory, porch with hanging space for coats). The beds were very comfortable and well "dressed", although perhaps not quite hotel standard.. - if I'm nit picking. Sufficient towels for all too! (Hot tub users might like to bring extra, or a towelling robe).The Wifi did what it said on the tin. Great!The HOT TUB. Brilliant! After walking on cold windy munros all day, what could be better than an evening soak in glorious steaming water - no matter if it's a bit inclement!It is a bit weird with the hot tub being slightly visible from the road alongside - although there is a pretty effective wooden screen around it and it is a pretty quiet road. The garden is all you would expect in a new build: grass and patio - not like a mature garden. Plenty of space however for young children. Picnic table, chairs, parasol and BBQ supplied."
