In the center of all activities without tourist-feeling
The house was easy to find and everything was ready for us. The service was held in silence and did not disturb us at any time, really gentle ! The home -as described- was wonderful. Kingussie is a friendly town, makes you feel at home although it is obvious that you are a tourist. I felt more in the "real"Scotland than in Aviemore.
I loved the surroundings of the town, the Cairngorms and the people in Kingussie. The only trouble for me was the garbage bins - I was a little confused in the beginning how to select correct. I hope, this caused not a problem to the owner, but I am not used to the Scottish system. I am still a German...
good holiday in scotland
good clean and tidy cotttage.good base to return to after visiting other places.Kincraig wildlife park & the outdoor folk museum at Newtonmore well worth visiting.
Comfortable town house in a quiet Highland town
We really enjoyed staying in this well equipped townhouse in the Cairngorms. We were in want of nothing. The service provide by the proprietors was friendly and efficient. We were disapointed by the Service provided by Sykes. We did not receive the "check in" information until
after we returned from our trip!!! Also--Sykes did not forward the information regarding our arrival time to the proprietors. This caused a great deal of confusion upon our arrival to Kingussie. Fortunately the owners had set up a "fall back plan". Our vacation potentially could have suffered greatly due to Sykes oversights and mistakes.
We loved the area for hiking, the village was friendly and we enjoyed our time very much.
Lovely house, very confortable, everything you could need for a holiday. Very close to the shops & local amenities. Great base for travelling around. The only problem was the rear garden, although it did state it was a steep rear garden I don't think it makes it clear enough it is EXTREMELY steep & unsuitable for anyone unfit, disabled or your children so there is really no outside sitting area.
Not the cosy Highland Hide-away we dreamed of

"We enjoyed the open fire."
We had fantastic weather - wall to wall sunshine! The property was excellent - exceptionally clean, good decoration, loads of room. It is situated in a good location right on the High Street, close to the bus stop with a regular bus service, close to shops and only a five minute walk from the railway station. As we came by train and had no car this was an excellent place to be.
Central location, near to bus, rail and shopping facilities. Ideal location also for outdoor pursuits.
Brilliant location. Village had lots of places to eat, drink and shop with lots of outdoors activities on offer very close to hand. House was very comfortable and clean.

We had a lovely time at Hillside East Cottage. We used it as a base for our trips to different places in the Highlands and we enjoyed coming home every evening. The whole house was very clean, well furnished and we felt very comfortable.
A comfy house in a good position for going out from each day to explore the Highlands for the first time. I was happy to stay there and would stay there again. The town itself had good enough food shopping for our needs. The station had frequent enough trains to go visit Aviemore steam station and Inverness, and lots of nature was within easy reach. I've seen dolphins red kites, osprey, red squirrels and woodpeckers for first time this week! It was awesome.
