This homely bungalow with a pretty garden brimming with wildlife is perfect for nature lovers, or those looking for a restful holiday away from the pressures of everyday life.

Perfect for long dog walks and enjoyable hiking days out, this Scottish bungalow is ideal for your next family holiday. Man's best friend and his loyal masters are all well catered for in this comfy home, where six humans and two dogs are welcome to unwind after a long day of bagging Munros and chasing red squirrels. Curl up together in the cosy lounge, reflecting on the day past and watching as Fido basks in the warmth of the open fire.

The decor of this country home has been well preserved, boasting antique furniture and floral soft furnishings that act as an instant reminder of your rural location. Comfy beds, sofas and armchairs all create welcoming spaces to unwind after a long day on your feet, and the windows boast stunning views out to the surrounding gardens. The farmhouse-style kitchen is kept cosy thanks to a traditional AGA oven, providing a warming space for dogs to curl up and sleep when everyone has retired to bed. On summer evenings, the home excels in outdoor space, offering an enclosed garden for Fido and Rover to stretch their legs and a patio with furniture and a BBQ where you can enjoy dining outside.

Wander 1 mile down to the small village of Tomatin, made popular by its large distillery and excellent Scottish spirit. The village lies on the brink of the vast Cairngorms National Park. Here you'll find an abundance of unforgettable dog walks, including the Munro Ben Macdui, that'll challenge even the most energetic of pups. After some extensive woodland walks, head to the pretty town of Grantown-on-Spey (18 miles), where you'll find plenty of dog-friendly local pubs and the bustling River Spey.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Learag is spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The huge garden is a delight for both humans and dogs. Proximity to the A9 allows easy access to the coast, hills and Inverness, with traffic noise only noticeable in the morning. Even then it does not drown out the birdsong. Although, due to Covid rules, we never met the housekeeper, she had thRead moreoughtfully left bacon, eggs, bread, butter and milk in the fridge for our arrival. The new shop/caf in the village is excellent. A magical holiday. Hide

Tomatin is a lovely area. There are lots of places to walk and enjoy the views and historical atmosphere. Learag is a 1970s family home beautifully situated and well equipped. Cooking with an aga stove is a bit different. There is now a good community shop and cafe in the village.

Learag was in a wonderful setting. The house felt like a hunting lodge inside. The lounge was a stunning place to spend time infant of the roaring open fire. We found the AGA an interesting way of cooking, and managed very well with the turkey and trimmings on Christmas Day!
