- Aviemore, ScotlandThere are two ways to enter the property, either via the front door leading into the boot room or via the side door which leads into the kitchen/dining room. In the boot room there is ample storage space for outdoor gear and even bicycles. Beyond here is the central hallway, where it becomes immediately obvious how large and spacious Daviot Bheag is.
Off the hallway towards the front of the house is a spacious master bedroom, benefitting from lots of natural light. Next to this room is a large and comfortable single room. Another door down is a modern family bathroom with an additional toilet room adjacent.
On the other side of the bathroom is another double bedroom and another single bedroom. Both enjoy views out over the rear garden.
The natural flow of the house draws you away from the bedrooms and bathroom and through to the brilliant living room with its huge windows from which you can see the local ski-runs coming down from the Cairngorms. There is a Smart TV and DVD player with a selection of DVDs.
Beyond the living room you will find the large kitchen/dining/conservatory. It’s simply perfect for families and groups to gather in to cook, eat and entertain at the large table, spill over to the seating area in the conservatory for board games and even straight out into the garden. It’s also the perfect space for the dogs to spend their holiday with two doors leading out to different parts of the fully enclosed garden.
Aviemore is one of the best locations for a Scottish Highlands holiday and adventure. The town is surrounded by secluded lochs, ancient forest and more outdoor pursuits to enjoy than you can imagine. With Aviemore at the foot of the mountains of the Cairngorms National Park there are walking, biking and ski trails galore. The walking is some of the finest in Europe thanks to the sheer size and remoteness of the national park. You can easily explore the Speyside Way and the 31 miles of trails within the Rothiemurcus Estate.
In winter, Aviemore transforms into an alpine town with easy access to winter sports, including skiing at Cairngorm Mountain. But what really makes this area special is the ski touring off piste into the unique wilderness where special UK species can be spotted. The BBC’s ‘Springwatch’ and ‘Winterwatch’ have based themselves close to Aviemore in recent years.
Watersports are abundant too, especially at local Loch Morlish, an excellent kayaking and sailing location. Fishing is popular across the Highlands, but nowhere more so than along the River Spey which runs through Aviemore. The Abernethy Angling Association manages the excellent Aviemore Beat and day/week tickets are available for purchase. Shop 500 yards, pub 1 mile and restaurant ½ mile.£136Price per night from
