Highly recommended. The house is lovely. Being recently renovated it is immaculate and its got a good layout for guests with plenty privacy. We were there in Sept and its a beautiful place to visit during the autumn but would also be a really cosy house in winter (several woodburning stoves) and a great spot during the summer months with a large garden with amazing views (and no midges). Peter was a great host (Liz was away) and made us feel really welcome and set out a tasty, fresh breakfast in the morning. To be honest, we didn't want to leave :)

This is a truly special, beautiful, AMAZING property in a superb location. We had such a warm welcome and the breakfast was fantastic. The whole property is so well designed and with such a thought for detail and immaculately clean and tidy. The house is just by a small river and the scenery is incredible. I can't recommend it enough.

There could be no doubt when waking up at this place: you are in Scotland for sure! After a warm welcome from Elizabeth and Peter we had a wonderful stay at their place. A breakfast awaited us with fresh eggs, produced by their own chickens. Our tidy room was very nice to sleep in, the bathroom clean with a good shower and the breakfast is presented in a private kitchen. On top of that all beautiful landscapes en very quite.

Elizabeth's place was very beautifull, clean and in the middle of nowhere which was exact what we were looking for! Had a great chat, welcome cake with tea!

Elizabeth and her husband´s place was the best experience I ever had on airbnb. The location was great for exploring Cairngorms, as long as you have a car. And the room was great and private. Elizabeths was so great and went out of her way to help us out. The breakfast was really good too. Basically there is nothing bad to say about this stay. Would highly recommend this place to others looking to explore the Cairngorms. Hope to come back. :)

Living in the Cairngorms National Park is a privilege it's the most beautiful place I have had the pleasure to live in. I adore my farmhouse & my garden.
I'm an outdoors girl walk for pleasure with my dogs & feed my spoilt rotten hens & enjoy the beauty of my little piece of Scotland.
