The property is in the heart of The Rothiemurchus Estate on the outskirts of Aviemore on the country road that leads to one of the most beautiful lochs in Scotland, Loch An Eilein.
The area is a wonderland for the outdoors. Everything is possible in terms of outdoor activities with many offered within the estate including walks through the Caledonian Forest, running, cycling, canoeing, loch sailing, swimming, fishing, clay pigeon and grouse shooting, hunting, trout and salmon fishing. You are only a short drive away from skiing, golfing (excellent courses of Dalfaber and Boat of Garten) crafts and art venues, amazing food, Highland Wildlife Park, Speyside Whisky trail and numerous gin distilleries and tasting. The location is also a great starting point for walking through the Lairig Ghru and five Monroes, including the second and third highest mountains in Britain.
We have an extensive local guide for tips on things to do, where to book and where to eat and drink.
