Our Self Catering Cottages




Converted from a former workshop and store, we have two delightful self-catering cottages, set in their own grounds to the rear of the main house set off a private road with your own private parking.

Named after a couple of the local mountains, both cottages offer you cosy, warmly decorated, well furnished, fully equipped accommodation.

Creag Dhubh (1 Bedroom, sleeping 2)

This lovely one bedroom cosy cottage has an open plan kitchen/living room with a dining area and patio doors leading out to the garden, with your own private sheltered sitting area, which traps the sun throughout the afternoon and early evening.

The central hallway leads from the living room through to the large double bedroom, complete with its own comfy sofa, and to the shower and WC.

Creag Bheag (1 Bedroom, sleeping up to 4)


In early 2016 this cottage has undergone a refurbishment and to advise previous guests, the two bedrooms have now been converted into one bedroom with a double bed and bunk beds.  The bathroom consists of a WC, sink and electric shower.   It has a good-sized living room with  dining table & chairs for four and, just next door, fully-equipped kitchen. There's a patio right outside the french windows, with garden table and chairs, where you can relax, basking in the evening sun with views towards Creag Bheag.


Equipment and Facilities

Whichever cottage you decide meets your needs the best, you will find everything that you need for a comfortable and relaxed stay – the ideal base from which to explore this lovely part of Scotland in the heart of the Cairngorms.

In your living room there is freesat Colour TV/DVD,  a CD/Radio, and lots of books and games then, in your kitchen, you will find a full cooker, oven and grill, a microwave, toaster, kettle, a fridge or fridge freezer, sparkling crockery and cutlery, pots, pans, cooking utensils and, of course, tea towels.

The shower room consists of an electric shower, WC and sink together with heated towel rail.   Each cottage also has a hairdryer. Bed linen and towels are also provided.

Each room has its own thermostatically controlled, convector heater for your comfort and the domestics are not forgotten with a hoover, duster & polish tucked away and with a clothes horse, ironing board and iron should the need arise. (The laundry is just a couple of minutes away in the town).

In addition to your own private patio, outside there is a Barbeque, just perfect for those summer evening cook-ups.
