Like many homes that belong to outdoors fans, we are geared up to cater for walkers, cyclists, mountain bikers and families who are keen to enjoy an outdoors adventure or two. Let us help you to organise a fantastic guided or self-guided activity each day, or you can ask us for our recommendations for the best places to walk or cycle. We know so many amazing places in the Cairngorms National Park – and right on our doorstep. We’re keen for as many guests as possible to join our walking and cycling tours and courses, giving them the best value for money for an active Scottish Highlands break or holiday.

Our home also offers many facilities to ensure that your stay with us is warm, dry and very flexible.
