Within the Cairngorm national park in amongst the Scots Pines and close to the river, Spey can be found this traditional stone-clad house. Set within its own 2.5 acres of grounds, this is a house that started life back in 1793, which has been added to over the years making it a large holiday house today, perfect for a group of activity minded friends or for a family holiday.

With plenty of space inside as well, with a sitting room, dining room, TV room and a games room with a pool table, allowing for plenty of space for the group to spread out. The kitchen also has a breakfast room for more casual suppers or staggered breakfasts. The seven bedrooms are all on the two floors above and include double rooms, twin rooms and a single bedroom. This is a great base for a holiday in the Aviemore and Strathspey area which has proved popular for many years for so many people.

In the traditional manor, the sitting room is to be found at the front of the house, which has an open fire, comfortable seating and a TV, with DVD and SKY. Beyond the entrance hall, there is a smaller secondary sitting room, which is ideal for children, which has a TV and DVD player.

To the side of the building, off the kitchen, is a sunroom where boots can be stored, and dogs kept. Located on the first floor are two further rooms for entertainment purposes. There is a room with a pool table (with two fold-out beds available) and another smaller room with a ¾ size table tennis table.

The dining room is located off the entrance hall opposite the sitting room and is a bright room to the front of the house with a bay window, seating up to 12 people in comfort and style. To the rear of the house is the large kitchen and with a professional range-master cooker and two fridge freezers, it is set-up nicely to cater for larger groups. There is space for a breakfast table which can seat 6/8 people. Additionally, there is a utility room off the kitchen, with a washing machine and tumble dryer. A side door from the sunroom allows easy access to the kitchen, without having to traipse through the rest of the house.

Luxury self-catering holiday accommodation in the Highlands

Get ready to embark on a whimsical journey to the Scottish Highlands with Oliver's Travels, where fabulous, characterful homes await in this rugged and enchanting slice of northern Scotland. Mist-shrouded mountains, deep-blue lochs and ancient castles are the name of the game. It is like stepping into a fantasy novel, but with fewer dragons and more kilts!

First up on our Highland hit-list is Ben Nevis, standing at a whopping 1,345 metres. Climbers and hikers worldwide flock to its trails, ready to conquer the mountain and be rewarded with the most incredible views. If you are not up for an epic uphill battle, fear not! The Great Glen Way offers a more chilled stroll along the Caledonian Canal, connecting Fort William and Inverness. It is like a leisurely stroll through nature, with bonus canal vibes.

Now, who hasn't heard of Loch Ness? Home to historic castles such as Urquhart Castle, this legendary spot invites you to channel your inner detective and search for Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster. Nessie might be shy, but the views are anything but! You will enjoy ruins, mystery and just maybe, a friendly monster waving from the depths.

Inverness, the unofficial Highland capital, is where historic charm meets modern pizzazz. The River Ness weaves through the city, tickling the feet of Victorian buildings. It is a sophisticated dance of old and new. You can stroll along the riverbanks, explore Inverness Castle and soak up the local vibes at the Inverness Museum and Art Gallery. Heading west is the hidden treasure of Plockton which boasts landscapes so picturesque, you will think you are in a watercolour painting. Whitewashed cottages add a touch of charm and the sheltered bay is the perfect spot for daydreaming. You can take a boat trip to nearby islands or just bask in the coastal serenity. In Fort Augustus, where the Caledonian Canal plays meet and greet with Loch Ness, boating and water-based antics abound. The locks of Fort Augustus are like a watery staircase, a fascinating engineering marvel that turns boat journeys into a spectacle.

The Highland Folk Museum near Newtonmore invites you to step back in time. This living history museum spills the secrets with reconstructed buildings, costumed interpreters and demonstrations of age-old crafts. Another wonder, Eilean Donan Castle is a real-life fairytale fortress perched on a tiny island where three lochs have a meet-up. It is so postcard-perfect that even Hollywood could not resist its charm. History buffs and Instagram enthusiasts, this one is for you!

Of course, we cannot forget the whisky. The Highlands are the holy grail for whisky aficionados. Glenlivet and Glenfiddich distilleries open their doors for guided tours, where you will learn the magic behind crafting Scotch whisky. Sip, swirl and savour – it is a Highland happy hour!

Whether you are scaling castles, conquering peaks, fishing, boating or just lounging by a loch, the Scottish Highlands invites you to a land where nature and history come together in a brilliant way. It is a timeless tale that leaves you in awe. Step into the magic as adventure awaits!

Ah, bonnie Scotland! A wild and beautiful part of the world, where you can explore the rugged highlands or enjoy the colour and vibrancy of cultural capitals like Edinburgh and Glasgow.

But how do you know you’re getting the very best out of your trip? That’s where we come in. If you’ve had a browse through our range of luxury cottages and castles in Scotland, you’ll know there’s some great places to stay, but to find all the great things to do, see and eat you’ll need our handy Scotland travel guide  – so read on and enjoy!

Reviews

  • Perfect for a family get away

    on 21/08/2021

    The house was perfect for us. It was better than the brochure described; well finished but not to the level that we were worried about enjoying it - especially with dogs. Spacious too. The owner was friendly and helpful. I would recommend it.

  • Excellent House

    on 24/09/2020

    House was everything we wanted, young adults enjoyed games rooms and older adults could enjoy the very spacious living room and dining rooms. Will be booking again. Met the owner who was very helpful. The housekeeper was always at the end of the phone. Great for big groups of mixed ages.

    Excellent service, staff replied to my emails with queries very quickly.

  • Lovely weekend

    on 14/04/2020

    Early arrival was arranged through housekeeper as was late departure which was really helpful. First class, house was warm when we arrived clean and tidy, big kitchen,seating for everybody, party of 14. Loads of games to keep the kids busy, nice dog walk round back of house. Bedrooms were comfy as was lounge with a big roaring fire, bought some peat from local garage. Aviemore village only 20 minutes away. Lovely weekend away will use this house again.

  • Perfect location

    on 17/10/2019

    The house was a perfect location for our holiday and provided ample room for all the guests we had during our stay there. The house is well equipped, but remains quirky, and the pool room was well used. The weekly cleaning service was excellent. A great centre for exploring Speyside and the Cairngorms, with lots of opportunities for great walks straight out the door.
