“Highly recommended”
Reviewed September 10, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This cottage is easy to get to, being close to the A9. It's within walking distance of Kingussie, which we rather like. Ruthven Barracks is just over the road, for evening strolls. The Rothiemurchus Estate, with all its lovely paths for walking and cycling, is within easy travelling distance. The Highland Wildlife Park is well worth a visit. The Cottage itself is beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. It has everything you need, and more. We liked opening the doors onto the veranda and enjoying the fresh air while sitting comfortably on the sofa. There is a wonderful area of grass which was great for our little boy to run around on.

“Perfect stay”
Reviewed August 16, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Our first time in the Cairngorms and Sundowner proved to be the perfect base. The cottage is really well laid out and equipped with everything we needed. Our two boys particularly enjoyed the table tennis. Easy walking distance from the village, we mainly self-catered, and the excellent butcher's and Co-op meant we didn't need to travel further to shop. Lovely walks straight from the cottage and many more within a short driving distance. There are so many things we didn't have time to do - I am sure we will be visiting again.

“A perfect place to discover the Scottish Highlands”
Reviewed August 15, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

For a first visit of Scotland we were lucky to find the Sundowner Cottage.

After a night on the ferry (Zeebrugge-Hull) and a 6-hour car trip (Hull-Kingussie), we reached the magnificent landscape of Cairngorms: already a taste of holiday... Last mile: we can appreciate the view on the stunning "Ruthven Barracks", just next to our final destination.

The cottage is pretty and comfortable, it seems to be brand new. There is a large garden with lovely bird feeding cages. And tennis table for the kids, extremely useful for the rainy afternoons!

The region is perfect for walking and running, our favourite activities during the holidays. A lot of circuits are possible directly from the cottage (not necessary to take the car).

Last but not least, the owners offer a warm welcome and a lot of useful advices. You can see they fell in love with the Cairngorms region, and they transmit their passion to the visitors.

If we come back to the Cairngorms, we know where to go!

“Perfect stay at Sundowner Cottage”
Reviewed May 29, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Ideal location to explore the Cairngorms and surrounding area......on bike, foot or car. Cottage is perfect in every way, even having your own little private area to sit out and watch the wildlife. Wonderful to come back to after a long day on the mountains, as it's so homely. Excellent hosts in Judy and Jules, so friendly but not obtrusive at all. I would definitely return and cannot rate Sundowner highly enough.

“Excellent!!”
Reviewed May 14, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Had a lovely week staying in Sundowner Cottage!
The cottage was a real home from home and nice to come back to after our days out.
The boys enjoyed the table tennis, and Judy and Jules made us all very welcome.
Lots to do in the area, Strathspey Railway, Balmoral, Cairngorms, and brilliant mountain biking at Laggan Wolftrax!!
