The Experience

Remarkably this house was only built in 1995. Inside it is lovely and light with big bay windows and seats to admire the views over the mountains. The drawing room has an open fire, books everywhere, original oils and watercolours, and games for rainy days. Teenagers will love the sitting room with TV, the games room with bumper billiards, the sofas, Xbox and ping pong table in the attic.

Stroll the delightful gardens, play croquet, find a pond stocked with trout, access fishing on the Spey, sign up for quad biking or clay pigeon shooting, bring bikes and cycle all the way to Aviemore if you’re feeling energetic, forage for mushrooms and wild raspberries on the estate. Cooking is a breeze in the enormous kitchen but with a bit of notice Charlotte is happy to do it. You eat at a large table with French windows to the terrace or in the lovely conservatory.

Bedrooms, one downstairs, have sumptuous beds, feather pillows, thick fabrics and long garden views.

The neighbourhood

Golfers will be thrilled with the views at each hole over the Monadhliath Mountains, the Cairngorms, the Inshriach Marshes, and the Spey Valley. Kingussie has all you need plus a good butcher and from here you can walk to the ruins of the Ruthven Barracks. Walkers will adore the National Park and whisky drinkers will book a tour around Dalwhinnie - the highest distillery in the UK. Visit castles.

Local points of interest from Charlotte & Alasdair Findlay

  • Dunkeld is a great day trip (1hr away). A beautifully scenic drive, explore the interesting galleries & shops, eat lunch overlooking the river Tay or pop into the famous Aran bakery for delicious cake and pastries
  • For history enthusiasts why not visit a highland castle or two or the battlefields of Culloden?For whiskey & gin drinkers the local distilleries including Dalwhinnie, Daffy’s and Kinrara gin are a stones throw away.
  • Lovers of nature should look out for red squirrels and our resident pair of Ospreys. The west coast is easily reached for a day trip. Head for the stunning beaches on a sunny day and take in the view of Ben Nevis on the way.
  • Milton is in a truly enviable location for activities galore.On the doorstep there is the river Spey for wild swimming, taking in the breathtaking scenery & discovering many bountiful foraging spots where you can find wild mushrooms and berries.
  • The House of Bruar is a 30 minute drive away. The ultimate location for a spot of retail therapy, it truly has something for everyone from country clothing to homeware, gifts and an excellent food hall.
  • Inverness has some fantastic restaurants serving great Scottish produce. Our favourite is The Rocpool where you’ll find an amazing value set lunch menu.


Charlotte & Alasdair Findlay

Charlotte and her husband Alasdair live on the 20,000 acre Ralia estate where they run a shoot. Charlotte is a cook (hence the amazing kitchen) and caters for guests staying at the Sporting Lodge. They both love this special part of Scotland and hope you fall in love too with the walks, the nature, the wonderful views and the silence.
