A luxury cottage located in the Cairngorms National Park in an idyllic location between the popular villages of Kingussie and Aviemore. Perfect for a romantic getaway or as a base for families to explore the wilderness.

Stedet
Railway Cottage is a traditional railway worker's cottage dating back to the early 1900s. Recently given a new lease of life by the owners, the cottage has been thoughtfully redecorated offering a luxury, boutique experience in the Highlands. Located beside the RSPB nature reserve at Insh Marshes, there's no shortage of spectacular views, and the popular villages of Aviemore and Kingussie are just a short drive away. Perfect for outdoor enthusiasts and those looking for a romantic getaway.

Stylishly renovated, the cottage boasts a living room with a huge log burning stove, 3 seater couch and arm chair, a 40', wi-fi enabled smart TV, with Netflix, Spotify, catch up TV and DVD. Additionally their is a BOSE stereo, with bluetooth, radio and line in, to connect music players / laptops.

For dining, set back from the fire, there is a solid oak, Edwardian table for 4, with all you will need to prepare a meal through in the kitchen.

The kitchen combines the industrial sense of the railway with the serene surroundings of Insh Marshes; a polished concrete work top, inlaid with stainless steel fittings, between beach cabinets and bur elm shelving. Everything you'd expect in a modern kitchen is nicely tucked in there; dishwasher, fridge-freezer, separate wine-cooler, 4 way ceramic hob, double oven / grill, micro-wave. The tiled floor stays cosy with under-floor heating (also in the bathroom).

The views of the Cairngorms and Insh Marshes from both kitchen and living room are just incredible.

Both bedrooms have luxurious king size double beds, with high-quality, cotton linen; a chest of drawers, desk/dresser and wardrobe; sheep skin and Persian rugs underfoot, colourful prints on the walls. Each has their own radiator with thermostat and black out blinds, for the snuggest possible night's sleep.

The bathroom is decadent, with heated, Mediterranean style floor tiles and bespoke Victorian mahogany pedestal, below white, tiled walls and quality chrome fittings. The bath is a deep, relaxing, roll-top style with claw feet. Heated towel rail, hand crafted bur elm shelving and large mirror with shaving light make up the rest. Cosy dressing gowns, slippers and plenty of thick, cotton towels are all provided for you.

Outside, the cottage is surrounded by incredible views. The garden itself is bordered sporadically by a variety of trees - birch, beach, oak, elm - providing some privacy but letting plenty of the view in. A large decking area has dining space for 4 on it, plus loungers for all.

It looks south, so enjoys the sun most of the day and overlooks a bespoke, stone fire-pit, with benched seating made from old railway sleepers.

A large lawn, with webber BBQ, double hammock, complete the back garden on the south and west sides of the house. The front garden looks across the railway and Insh Marshes and enjoys some of the best views of the Cairngorms there are.

We hope you'll visit Railway Cottage, a home from home, in truly breathtaking surroundings.

Gjestetilgang

Balavil, Highland, Storbritannia

The cottage and the local area boasts spectacular views and no shortage of wildlife for neighbours. Situated by a railway line and next to a RSPB bird reserve, it is the perfect spot for bird and train spotters.

There are fantastic walks for all grades straight from the cottage and all across the local area - the list is endless! Footpaths take you from moor to woodland and riverside to loch edge. As well as walking and mountain climbing there is sensational mountain biking and cycling to be had with some of the best trails in Scotland. Whether you are looking for a cliff-top challenge or a quiet ride out in the countryside, the Cairngorms has a cycle route suitable for everyone. You can make the most of your cycle safe in the knowledge that a welcome pit stop is never too far away.

There are many great activities to do while taking in the beautiful scenery.
The historic Balavil estate, known to millions as Kilwillie from TV series Monarch of the Glen, is described as the "jewel in the crown" of sporting estates in the country, and is just across the road.

The Highland Wildlife Park is just a mile north of the cottage and hosts a wide range of local and more exotic creatures from polar bears and snow leopards to red squirrels and Scottish wild cats.

Alvie Estate is a beautiful highland estate near Kincraig and is well worth exploring. There are many activities available - quad biking, horse riding, fishing, clay pigeon shooting, zip wire park, and bushcraft survival classes. You can feed the deer in the winter months or watch sheep being clipped in June. Tours can be organised if you want to learn more about our countryside and how the estate makes a living. Venison, lamb, beef, strawberries, raspberries and smoked trout can be purchased from the Dalraddy Holiay Park shop (depending on the season or by contacting the farm).

Loch Insh Watersports offers sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, river trips, rowing, fishing, dry ski slope skiing, archery, mountain biking and hill walking. Hire and/or instruction is available by the hour, day or week.

For those interested in our history, Delfour Standing Stones are located on Alvie Estate dating back 6000 years. There are Iron Age forts, the Wolf of Badenoch's Castle at Loch an Eilean, Ruthven Barracks by Kingussie, the Highland Folk Museum in Newtonmore, steam railway in Aviemore, Culloden battlefield and a number of country houses and castles to see nearby.
