Beautiful, warm cottage in a peaceful setting. Easy drive to Aviemore and Nethy bridge, and Boat Of Garten is not too long to walk to. A warm welcome from the lovely hosts (and their dog!). Would definitely return 🙂

5 star rating“Excellent little cottage in the Cairngorms” We recently spent 5 days in Sycamore Cottage and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The cottage is small, cosy and modern throughout. Perfect for a holiday for 2. Loved watching the activity on the bird feeders each morning in the enclosed garden. The log burner is a delight and was great against the chilly autumn temperatures.

A great base to explore various places in the Highlands. Boat of Garten just a short walk away. We did this very early one frosty morning and spotted plenty of deer along the way- perfect!

Martin and Briony were lovely hosts and we loved meeting Dexter the dog! Many thanks for your hospitality

5 star rating“Excellent stay” We had an excellent time here. The access to the property is good and there is good parking. The actual house is lovely and clean. It is really cosy with the fire on at night! The garden is enclosed for dogs too which is good. All in all had a good time and would definitely go back 🙂 x

5 star rating“Beautiful little cottage” We could not have been happier staying in this beautiful little cottage! It has everything you need like a comfy bed and cooking facilities. And the log burner is a perfect touch for cold nights. We spent 2 nights here and we will definitely be back. Perfect as a little romantic getaway for a couple or for tourists wanting to see more of Scotland!

5 star rating“Return visit to a great place to stay.” My wife and I stayed here in April 2019 and vowed to return for a longer visit. We did, and enjoyed ourselves even more than the first visit. Walked from the cottage into Boat of Garten several times. Watched the birds at the feeder - including the woodpecker! Briony and Martin couldn't be more helpful when needed. Lovely black Labrador, that is so friendly especially on our arrival. Yes, we do plan to return again and look forward to more adventures in the area.

5 star rating“Great base for exploring the Cairngorms” Not far from Aviemore, this is a great base for enjoying the outdoors. The state of the art kitchen has everything you need. The bed is really comfortable. No expense was spared there! Everything is finished to an amazingly high standard. We walked into Boat of Garten for provisions, where the local shop has a surprising range of provisions. This was our second visit, and, I think, not our last.

5 star rating“Great pet friendly stay for 2” The little cottage is located at the back of the main house garden, but has it's own entrance and feels perfectly secluded. Inside, the place has been renovated to a high standard with a good size kitchen area, seating area and a separate bedroom. All the furnishings and decor have been done to a good standard. Nice touches included some fresh eggs from the chickens and a tub of treats for the dog.

The owners were easy to deal with and very friendly. Would have no hesitation about going back.

This cottage is fantastic. The hosts have thought of everything from local information leaflets, Wi-Fi, Smart TV, Iron & board, hairdryer, even a box of dog stuff.

5 star rating“Sycamore Cottage” An excellent little cottage much enjoyed by my wife and I and our two dogs. Our stay which was only for two nights was very peaceful which we and the dogs really appreciated. Martin and Briony were very caring and helpful hosts. They really went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The cottage is situated in a beautiful area and will appeal to all comers who wish to travel in the area.

Briony and Martin were lovely hosts. Very helpful in suggesting things for us to locally. The eggs from the hens were yummy. The accommodation was clean and comfortably and perfect for what we needed. The enclosed garden was ideal to let our dog and toddler have some freedom. We would definitely visit again

We had a lovely, peaceful stay in this cosy cottage. Our wee dog loved it too, especially the enclosed garden. Great local walks and it was lovely to stroll to the village in the evening for dinner.
Briony and Martin were lovely hosts who couldn’t do enough for us and they even dog-sat our wee dog on Saturday. We loved the optional hamper which was well worth the money and saved us having to stop at the shops on the way up.
Bird watching in the garden with the sun shining and glass of wine in hand was an absolute highlight.
We’d definitely stay again. Thank you!

5 star rating“Cosy and well equipped cottage, great hosts, great base for touring” A great welcome from Martin & Briony, good clear communication throughout, very attentive hosts without being intrusive. Cottage was well-equipped and spotlessly clean. Well worth booking the 'welcome basket', especially enjoyed the eggs from their own hens. Really comfortable bed, very high though...did take a bit of getting used to, but is raised so you enjoy the view and watch the birds feeding outside. All in all, we had a really relaxed short break, everything there that we needed. Thanks both!

A great little cottage, spotlessly clean and a very friendly welcome from Briony & Martin. A handy base for touring, especially recommend the cross-country route up to Fort Augustus and Loch Ness (on a sunny day). Well worth booking the 'welcome basket' even if just for the home-grown eggs. Had a great short-stay. Thanks Briony!

The cottage has exceeded all expectations and one of the best nights on our round trip through Scotland. It is modern and cozy and was very clean. We were very pleased and lacked nothing. The views of nature are simply incredible and it is wonderfully quiet. Martin received us personally and explained everything. We had a great time there, just perfect. We can recommend them as hosts.

Great place to explore the Cairngorms, lovely quiet spot to watch the birds feed and relax in the sunshine (the small amounts we did have). Even though the weather wasn’t perfect it didn’t stop us having a great time, walking, exploring the area and relaxing in this lovely cosy cottage. Thanks for having us! Briony & Martin were very welcoming.

5 star rating“Simply a great place to stay.” A quality cottage, perfectly located for anyone who like the outdoors. Cairngorms within easy reach and some gentler walks nearby. Being the only cottage there, no problem with noisy neighbours. Watched the birds, at the feeders, for hours. Very friendly black Labrador for company now and again, and the owners, Briony and Martin, could not have been more helpful. Would love to return and get another chance to explore more of the area.

This is a great place to stay with many walks from the cottage or only a very short drive away. It's a lovely cottage equipped with everything you need. Briony and Martin are lovely hosts who were able to accommodate us arriving earlier than the check in time for which we were very grateful!
We had a really lovely stay at the cottage and would happily return for another visit!
