Make Yourself At Home

Our home is your home, so relax, enjoy the peace and sink into holiday mode.

Nestled within the Cairngorms wilderness and with easy access to Aviemore, our self-catering lodge and cottages offer the perfect escape for family holidays, retreats and events. Unwind, stoke your fire, re-connect and breathe deep. Go barefoot on the lawn, pick a hammock, toast your toes and slow right down. Allow your ears to ring with silence amongst the trees. Make yourself at home.
