Myrtle Cottage is a traditional stone cottage in the Cairngorms National Park offering seclusion in a scenic location. You will have the chance to truly relax and this holiday cottage is ideal if you enjoy being outdoors and wildlife watching. Red squirrels visit the feeders in the garden.

Accommodation overview

On the ground floor there is a typical cottage sitting room and you can sit and relax by the woodburner. The kitchen is well-equipped so after a day out exploring the hills you can come back and enjoy a home-cooked meal in the dining area.

The bathroom is also on the ground floor and has a  bath with a shower over, basin and WC.

The two double bedrooms are on the upper floor and you can enjoy views of the mountains from the large bedroom windows.

Picture yourself sat outside this cottage, listening to the sounds of the river below and the birds. Keep an eye out for the local wildlife which includes the red squirrel and roe deer.

If fishing is your passion, you can obtain fishing permits locally for the River Avon which is only 5 minutes walk from the cottage.
