Sycamore Cottage is situated in the hamlet of Drumuillie, conveniently located on the A95 about 6 miles from Aviemore.  The cottage is surrounded by beautiful scenery with views of the Cairngorm Mountains and the River Spey.

We are within easy reach of the Cairngorm Mountain ski resort, the Landmark Forest Adventure Park at Carrbridge, and the Osprey Centre at Loch Garten, as well as a host of other places of interest.  There are plenty of activities available locally from relaxed strolls in the countryside to adventurous activities suitable for thrill seekers.

There are fabulous walks and cycle rides from the cottage, with bike hire available from Boat of Garten.  Roe Deer, rabbits, hares, pheasants and other wildlife can be seen in the fields around the cottage. Walking, cycling, horse riding, fishing and golf are all available nearby.

Drumuillie is a pleasant and easy walk of about a mile (by track and minor road) from the village of Boat of Garten, which boasts the popular Anderson’s restaurant,  a post office with an extremely well stocked grocery section, art gallery, bike hire and the Boat Hotel with bar and restaurant.  The Community Centre often holds interesting talks, film nights, community lunches and a Hogmanay Ceilidh.
