For a first visit of Scotland we were lucky to find the Sundowner Cottage.
After a night on the ferry (Zeebrugge-Hull) and a 6-hour car trip (Hull-Kingussie), we reached the magnificent landscape of Cairngorms: already a taste of holiday... Last mile: we can appreciate the view on the stunning "Ruthven Barracks", just next to our final destination.
The cottage is pretty and comfortable, it seems to be brand new. There is a large garden with lovely bird feeding cages. And tennis table for the kids, extremely useful for the rainy afternoons!
The region is perfect for walking and running, our favourite activities during the holidays. A lot of circuits are possible directly from the cottage (not necessary to take the car).
Last but not least, the owners offer a warm welcome and a lot of useful advices. You can see they fell in love with the Cairngorms region, and they transmit their passion to the visitors.
If we come back to the Cairngorms, we know where to go!
Ideal location to explore the Cairngorms and surrounding area......on bike, foot or car. Cottage is perfect in every way, even having your own little private area to sit out and watch the wildlife. Wonderful to come back to after a long day on the mountains, as it's so homely. Excellent hosts in Judy and Jules, so friendly but not obtrusive at all. I would definitely return and cannot rate Sundowner highly enough.
Had a lovely week staying in Sundowner Cottage!
The cottage was a real home from home and nice to come back to after our days out.
The boys enjoyed the table tennis, and Judy and Jules made us all very welcome.
Lots to do in the area, Strathspey Railway, Balmoral, Cairngorms, and brilliant mountain biking at Laggan Wolftrax!!
Great self catering cottage. Clean,warm, furnished to a high standard. Friendly hosts. Perfect location -plenty to do in this area and the hosts provided good tips. We were out and about every day cycling, walking,zip wiring,visiting wildlife park. But it was always a pleasure to return to the cottage. Brilliant Easter break.
Just spent a brilliant week in the Sundowner cottage.Everthing about it was perfect. Clean, warm, very high standard throughout. Very good location for exploring the area. Judy was such good fun. We wish her and her husband all the best in their new venture. I'm sure it will be a great success.
