Myrtle Cottage sleeping up to 4 guests
Tomintoul 4 miles. A charming, traditional stone cottage in a secluded location, amid stunning countryside in the fabulous Cairngorms National Park. This well-appointed cottage retains original features and would be ideal for two couples or a group of friends who really want to embrace the outdoor life whilst appreciating the total peace and tranquillity this Cairngorms cottage offers. There are two double bedrooms on the upper floor with cosy sloping ceilings to one side and large windows providing wonderful mountain views. The ground floor has a cottage-style sitting room with a warming woodburner, and the kitchen with dining area is very well equipped and a great place for a sociable meal after a day out on the hills. To the front of this Cairngorms cottage there is a seating area; an ideal spot for relaxing and listening to the sound of the river flowing by below the cottage or for some wildlife spotting as roe deer often wander past the door and red squirrels visit the feeders. The area is bursting with things to do, but with the River Avon running so close to the cottage, it is ideal for fishermen, who can obtain permits locally. The pretty highland village of Tomintoul is a short drive away and offers good local services, whilst the town of Grantown-on-Spey is also within a short drive and has enhanced services and dining out opportunities. This area is bursting with things to do, but perhaps you simply want to enjoy the fabulous location and comfort offered by your Cairngorms cottage, where you'll want to return to time and again.
The village of Tomintoul is located on the main road that joins Royal Deeside to the Highlands, so if you're planning on exploring the surrounding area Tomintoul is a great place to call home for a week or so. As well as holding the prestigious title of the highest village anywhere in the Scottish Highlands, Tomintoul also has a surprisingly large amount of shops, pubs and places to eat. There's something for everyone at this high altitude location; take a stroll along the Speyside Trail, walk the Castle and the Whisky Trail or take a trip to Aviemore where there's plenty of skiing fun to be had.
