Nice House
A lovely house within the wonderful area of Kincraig. Kitchen is small with not much cupboard space for food storage. Microwave was old but worked well. It also has an aga which is extremely hot and this is a worry with small children. It makes the house very hot which will be great in winter. The wooden floors are very nice but slippery. Not ideal for children or for elderly people. Unfortunately no instructions on how to use the aga or dishwasher, we looked it up on internet. Owner did visit next day to explain and showed us aga books. Washing machine is in a cupboard under the stairs, had to be on hands and knees to load or unload. Very good wifi signal. No wardrobes in upstairs bedrooms and small old one in downstairs bedroom. There are chests of drawers in all rooms. Beds very comfortable. Curtains are very light so in Summer, rooms are still light maybe need blackout blinds. Bathrooms were very nice. Horses in field behind garden were great but one kept escaping into another strip that was next to house. He kept neighing to be put back in his field. House owner said she would speak to horse owner at beginning of week. Horse did it nearly everyday as fence wasnt up properly. Luckily we are used to horses. Had views of deer and hares, shame no bird feeding station as lots of different species around. Lovely house and great design but we wont be staying again.

Lovely cottage
We have just returned from a week at Inshcraig. It is a beautiful cottage; spotlessly clean, warm and cosy and comfortable. We had no trouble finding it with the directions given and although I was unsure about using an aga it couldn't have been easier. The owner popped in to welcome us an hour after we arrived, there was even a Christmas tree and a bottle of bubbly. We had a wonderful holiday and hope to return one day. Highly recommended!

Tolles Haus
Wir waren mit 4 Männern auf Motorradrundreise durch Schottland. Das Haus hat uns allen besonders gut gefallen. War alles perfekt. War sauber, super ausgestattet und insgesamt har alles gepasst. Wir Männer waren zuerst mit dem "AGA" überfordert, aber Jenny Taylor kam sofort vorbei und hat uns alles erklärt. Sie war sehr nett und freundlich. Super schnelles W-Lan. Auf jeden Fall eine Empfehlung wert. Kommen gerne wieder.

Lovely house - great location but needs better directions
At the beginning of the holiday things were a little stressful as the directions to the place are not great and we spent 40 minutes driving up and down a road trying every track we could in the pitch black as they are half a mile out and the postcode is not near the properly. Once we arrived things considerably improved. The house is quite spacious and the living room is very cosy with a beautiful view and lovely fire. Jennifer popped in during the week and was very nice and cooking with the aga was definitely an experience, by the evening we didn't even need the fire and it kicks out quite a lot of heat. Now we've found the place we would definitely return and it is a brilliant location for getting around! I would highly recommend but maybe request additional directions!

Wonderful and quiet holidays in a lovely cottage
The cottage is well equipped, roomy and very comfy. The view from the cottage to the surrounding forest and hills is amazing, and you can basically step out of the door and start walking in a calm and beautiful environment. It was what I hoped for when I booked the cottage, and it was exactly what I got. While the cottage is indeed remote, and finding it the first time was a bit of an adventure, it was the ideal base to travel around the Aviemore and the Cairngorms. Everything we wanted to look at was just a short drive away. Should we come back to Aviemore, we'll definitely try to book Inshcraig again.

Wie zu Hause
Wir waren hier für 2 Wochen. Der Empfang der Vermieterin war sehr herzlich. Das Haus ist super gelegen und man kann direkt vom Haus aus viele Wanderungen in die schöne Umgebung machen. Ein Restaurant (Loch Insh Watersports Center) ist in ca. 10 Minuten zu Fuss erreichbar. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind ca. 1km entfernt. Das Haus ist sehr gut eingerichtet und es fehlt an nichts. Die Einrichtung ist geschmackvoll, modern und trotzdem gemütlich. Wir haben uns vom ersten Moment an wohl gefühlt. Es gibt sehr viele Ausflugsziele in der Umgebung. Für Kinder gibt es einen tollen Spielplatz beim Loch Insh Watersports Center. Wir können dieses Haus nur empfehlen und würden sofort wiederkommen.

Our home from home in lovely Speyside
This cottage is delightful and in a perfect location within a short walk through forest to Loch Insh Watersports Centre. Jennifer the owner has made the cottage so charming and cosy and is always on hand should anything arise. we stayed in this cottage for over 20 years on holiday before it was sold and are delighted to be able once again to make it our favourite holiday house. Now our grandchildren love to come and stay and enjoy the freedom of the outdoor space and the ponies in the field,

Beautiful Cottage in Amazing Surroundings
We received a very warm welcome from Jennifer, the cottage owner who lived within walking distance away from the cottage. This cottage is tastefully decorated with all he amenities you would ever need and in an idyllic area. The AGA was fun to cook on but did make the cottage extremely warm and when the weather was already warm actually the heat became overbearing at times. Due to the location of the cottage being the highlands, the summer days are long and it was not dark until almost midnight and was light again within 3 hours. This proved difficult for my little one who struggled as the curtains were quite light and could maybe benefit from some blackout blinds or darker curtains?? We ended up putting a throw over the curtain rails to make the room darker. We took our 6 yr old and she loved seeing a red deer walk past the lounge window in the field next door and giving carrots to the ponies in the field adjacent to the property. The birds were nesting in the wall and it was great to see them flying in and out and hearing the young at feeding time. A short walk away is Loch Insh and there is a beautiful sunset from here. Locally Inshriac Nursery has a cake shop called The Potting Shed where the cakes are amazing but even more so the bird feeders there attract many different birds including woodpeckers and also 3 beautiful Red Squirrel. A drive up to Cairngorm Mountain is a must! We went up early evening and saw a herd of reindeer walking along the road up there. The RSPB Osprey Centre is a fantastic place to visit with very knowledgeable staff and volunteers which made it extra special for my little girl. The Highland Folk Museum is great for kids and only a short drive away to Newtownmore. The added bonus is ... its FREE!!! A definite disadvantage is there is a very poor signal for mobile telephones and no internet access. A great holiday had by all.

Christmas in the Cairngorms
We spent Christmas week in this wonderful cottage, its very large and spacious with 3/4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms/shower rooms one on suite. lovely and warm with an Aga cooker and best of all an open fire, logs provided. It is 8 miles from Aviemore, and a friendly local shop that sells everything. The Cairngorms were full of snow we went up the venicular railway to the top and watched all of the ski slopes, great day out. All in all a great week ( car hire essential ) Many thanks Sykes.
