Thistle Cottage in Aviemore

Hi All

The Owner today for Thistle Cottage has been on and she has given the cottage a Spring Makeover

This 2 bedroom cottage at the North end of Aviemore just off the Dalfaber Country Club has two double rooms sleeping 4 and an outdoor hot tub.

It is situated in a wee cul de sac but only a 10 minute walk to the main street for all the Bars, Restaurants etc.
It has a secure garden and is pet friendly.

The Owner has installed a new Miele Hob and also in the Kitchen has sanded the work tops and re-oiled them 3 times.

In the Bedrooms she has also replaced both the Mattress's and for the Occasion snug use she has sourced 2 replacement mattresses for the pull down beds. We always advice Thistle is more suitable for 4 but if you have an extra person for the night this can be accommodated in this Cottage.

The Owner has also done some work in the Bathroom and sanded down the main wall and re painted it.

The Outside has not been missed out with the Outside Windows being given a lick of paint and a general tidy up of the Outside area after the Winter period.

All in all its what we like here in the Office a good Spring makeover ready for the busy Summer Period

We still have some weekends available in May over the next few Bank Holidays and have just released a couple of June Apex offers and have good availability for the Summer weeks

So give us a call and we can look to get you booked in, Availability for Thistle can be viewed Here

With the Owner of Thistle also Owning Outdoor Discovery there can be an amazing Summer awaiting you at this Cottage..

Blog a Lodge is Back - Twa Hoots Lodge

Hi All

As we gear up for the Summer, I am looking at our Lodges again

This  month we are looking at Twa Hoots Lodge, in Aviemore

One of our smallest properties.Detached Scandinavian style pine lined chalet
Sleeps up to 4 with One double, One bunk room
Shower room, Dining area, Large veranda and Pet friendly

The cabin sits in a small enclave with five other chalets, 2 minute's walk to the quaint Bridge Inn where good food and a well-deserved dram can be obtained in the company of other like minded people. A further short stretch of the legs takes you into the heart of Aviemore.

If you head tho other way a short ten minute walk will take you to Rothiemurchus Estate 
were you can do Archery, Wildlife Photography and Bush Craft. However for those that enjoy something slightly more exhilarating we have Pony Trekking, Safaris by Land Rover or Quad Bike Trekking and also a short drive to the Cairngorm Mountain for Winter or Summer sports.

Twa Hoots is well located for the Village and is a short distance to all local eateries and pubs, but you are far enough away to ensure you don't hear the hustle and bustle of a busy village. 

Twa Hoots has been enjoyed by many a family and will continue to be a great location for a Highland family holiday. With Summer prices from £469 for 7 nights this Lodge provides great value for money and is well situated to enjoy the Highlands at its best.
