Mountain View
near Grantown-on-Spey,

Close to Tomintoul with mountain views this converted blacksmith’s cottage is a true escape to nature in the Cairngorms, found on a winding country road within the Cairngorms National Park. Red squirrels are regular visitors here.

This charming traditional cottage was originally the local blacksmith’s and has been sympathetically modernised, whilst retaining the original character and atmosphere. The property enjoys far-reaching views over the beautiful countryside and is surrounded by farmland and forest on the Crown Estate of Glenlivet and is a great base for exploring the Cairngorm National Park.

This cottage offers a cosy space to relax after a long day of exploring. Two lounge areas offer space to relax on the ground floor. The first is a more formal sitting room with an open fire, sofa and a charming rocking chair. Across the corridor, a second lounge acts as a TV room, with DVD player and a handful of toys for children. Heading back into the main sitting room and you’ll find a dining table underneath a window with remarkable scenery. The kitchen can be found to the rear of the property and offers a fridge/freezer, electric oven, microwave and washing machine. The ground floor boasts a double bedroom with spacious wardrobe and garden views, and a shared bathroom with WC and shower over the bath. The first floor can be accessed via a unique ladder-style staircase in the central hallway. Upstairs you’ll find two attic bedrooms with vaulted ceilings and large windows: a cosy twin and compact double.

Outside, a substantial outbuilding provides secure storage for outdoor equipment.

This is an ideal place for relaxing and to enjoy the wide variety of wildlife, with red squirrels regular visitors. Venture into the Cairngorms National Park for a day of walking and exploration, or enjoy investigating the meadow and woodland of Crown Estate of Glenlivet.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
