A lovely cottage in an secluded area. If peace and quiet is what you want then this is ideal. Lovely small enclosed garden for our dog Charlie. Everything work perfectly, a very good 5 days away.

Reviewed by Michael 18th July 2018

This is a pleasant cottage in a very remote location and very quiet. It is an ideal base for exploring the area and a car is essential for travelling. The nearest village is 7 miles away in Tomintoul but there is a good variety of shops. We were there for the annual Highland Games (3rd Saturday in July) and they were fun to see.
