The perfect couples’ getaway.

Nestled between Balavil estate and the RSPB nature reserve by Insh Marshes, there is no shortage of spectacular views of the Cairngorms.  Perfect for those seeking a bit of luxury, in an unspoilt, tranquil location, while enjoying the first class facilities of Strathspey.  Aviemore, Kingussie and Newtonmore are all just short journeys away, with Inverness airport only 45 minutes drive.

Recently refurbished to a high standard, our holiday cottage offers fresh and comfortable, boutique style accommodation, with an eclectic mix of artwork and furnishings, making for a homely feel. 

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).



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.

Everything you might expect in a modern kitchen is nicely tucked in here; dishwasher, fridge-freezer, separate wine-cooler, 4 way ceramic hob, double oven / grill and micro-wave.

High quality, Egyptian cotton bed linen, woollen blankets, dressing gowns and Fine Scottish toiletries are provided for extra comfort and indulgence.

We also take care of toilet paper, dishwasher tablets, matches and other household essentials.

What a place - a little heaven on Earth! 

“Absolutely fantastic, cosy and peaceful cottage. We loved little touches of miss matched decorations throughout the house, it gave it that warm, country, stylish feeling. The amenities were fantastic, you’ll find everything you need for a short stay. The cottage is sparkly clean and the bathroom is amazing - the bath especially! The location is good too, not far from local villages but at the same time very quiet (well, apart from occasional train ;)). Views are breathtaking, but that’s Scottish highlands for you! And of course, I couldn’t not mention the fireplace - WOW. Definitely adds points to that ‘hygge’ atmosphere, absolutely fantastic. Kim is a great host, very approachable and accommodating, thank you Kim for your hospitality!”

Stylish and super unique!

“We enjoyed our stay for three nights at the railway cottage. The passing trains were amazing to watch (we are pretty big train fans). The bed was super comfortable, and heated floors were a nice amenity on chilly mornings. We very much appreciated the use of the washer/dryer. The hosts were responsive and very kind to give suggestions for places to visit in our future travels. The cottage is only a short drive from Aviemore's bustling village but provides a lovely setting away from it all!”

Just fabulous.

“The cottage is so clean, comfortable, quiet, stylish, well equipped, and well located. We enjoyed the trains speeding by! The wood fire burner makes the place so cozy in the evening. Very highly recommended!”
