This converted blacksmith's cottage is a true escape to nature, found on a winding country road within the Cairngorms National Park. Red squirrels are regular visitors here.
Do you love taking your dogs on long, energetic walks alongside rivers, lochs and wild forest paths? Then we might just have the holiday home for you. This charming former blacksmith's cottage is located within Cairngorms National Park for guaranteed spectacular scenery. With lovely views and a huge garden, it's a lovely place to spend some quality time away from it all. With space for up to four humans and two dogs, this property is just right for couples or smaller families.
This old stone house has been modernised to provide all the creature comforts you and your pet need, including plenty of cosy spots to sleep and an open fire perfect for your dog to flop in front of after a day exploring. In the games room, play table tennis while the dog cocks her head wondering what all the commotion is about. The garden, complete with a pond, seating and a BBQ, is a lovely spot to relax and absorb the countryside views. On sunny days, take couple of slices of shortbread and a cuppa out and enjoy them on the bench while your canine companions chase their tails on the lawn nearby.
Surrounded by farmland and forest, this cottage is every nature lover's dream – if you're lucky (and if your pups are calm) you may spot some lovely red squirrels. Explore the area on foot or bike with your pets, perhaps heading to the River Avon (1 mile) or the nearest village, Tomintoul. Here you'll find a few craft shops and a dog-friendly pub where you can go for a pint or a nip of whisky. Keen hikers and fit pets may tackle some of the mountains in the national park, which attracts hillwalkers from all over the world.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
