Right in the village, nicely set back from the road but with views of the surrounding mountains, this beautifully furnished Victorian house is the perfect setting for a special gathering of friends or family.
There’s space to spread out, from the formal living room with a wood-burner to the snug with a big TV for the young ones. Head to the wooden weather observatory, built by Prince Albert, on the front lawn for a morning coffee or evening G&T – or the suntrap of a patio garden at the back.
The kitchen has every mod-con including a big range cooker and a wine chiller; there’s a breakfast bar, and a long table in the dining room for everyone to gather around. Head into the village for restaurants and shops. You’re surrounded by the beauty of Cairngorms National Park and you may spot red deer and golden eagles. In winter, you can reach skiing slopes in ten minutes or make use of the sleds at the house; summer activities include walking, climbing, mountain biking and water sports – plus a distillery visit or two.
