The cottage is excellent, clean and comfortable. All the facilities you would need and neat little veranda with nice views to woodlands. Easy 1 mile woodland into Boat of Garten which has a very good restaurant (Andersons). We were lucky and the weather was superb - this part of Scotland is beautiful. Good choice of walking and golfing. Martin was very responsive and helpful. Thoroughly recommend this stay.

A perfect base for a week exploring the Cairngorms, 15 mins drive to Aviemore and 20 mins easy walk to the pub. The cottage is super cosy, really clean with everything you could possibly need for your stay. Even dressing gowns were provided. Our dog enjoyed the enclosed garden and was made to feel very welcome. We loved sitting on the porch in the sunshine at the end of a days walking enjoyjng the lovely views.

Wonderful country cottage in the beautiful surroundings of Speyside. The cottage is superbly equipped and easily accessible. Our hosts were friendly and responsive, and everything went smoothly. The garden is delightful, and the sound of the dawn chorus was amazing. We had a restful and relaxing stay, and would recommend both the location and our hosts! 5 stars!

We loved staying at Sycamore cottage. The views from the windows are amazing and in a great location for exploring the Cairngorms further. The cottage was clean and well equipped with everything we needed.
Briony was a great host and gave clear instructions and felt right on hand (even though we didnโ€™t need anything).
We would definitely stay again!

Such a lovely cottage. It was clean and had everything I needed. The wood stove was so nice at night.

Briony & Matrin's location instructions were very clear and they helped answer my questions on using public transport.

Surrounded by beautiful mountains and can see a beautiful starry night sky. It's a great place to relax and enjoy nature. I had a wonderful time. Thank you.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage is within east reach of Avimore and Grantown so thereโ€™s plenty to do without having to travel very far. Itโ€™s also super well equipped and warm - perfect for a relaxing in after a day spent hill walking.
Briony and Martin also recommended the local village Ceilidh for Hogmanay - it was so much fun!

We had a truly enchanting stay at Briony's B&B. The attention to detail throughout the entire place was impeccable, and we thoroughly enjoyed preparing meals in the well-appointed kitchen while spending our evenings cozily nestled in front of the fireplace. I recommend this charming B&B and look forward to returning in the future๐Ÿฅฐ

Beautiful little cottage in lovely countryside. We loved having the log burner to warm us up, and it was great waking up to see the birds on the feeders in the garden - including a woodpecker in the early morning!

Het verblijf in het huisje was geweldig! Het huisje is goed verzorgd en onderhouden. Aan de gebruikte materialen kan ik zien dat ze niet bespaard hebben op de voorzieningen. Briony was altijd aardig en gaf tips voor locaties voor mijn nacht fotografie.
