Located down a quiet tree lined lane in the centre of Kingussie, this stone built Victorian townhouse offers good holiday accommodation. The good choice of living areas make a great space for relaxing after a day’s sightseeing, while the kitchen and adjacent conservatory with woodburner allow for convivial dining and entertaining throughout the year. Just 11 miles south of the popular destination of Aviemore, quieter Kingussie is surrounded by the natural beauty of the Cairngorm National Park and is only a stones throw from all the local tourist attractions. For those seeking invigorating activities experience climbing, rambling, pony trekking or water and winter sports. Kingussie’s challenging 18-hole hillside golf course offers spectacular views of the national park, while those seeking highland peace and tranquility there are glorious riverside walks, fishing and bird watching; or visit the ruins of Ruthven Barracks - a pleasant country walk from the town. Situated at the foothills of the Cairngorm and Monadhliath Mountain Ranges, it is a great location for walkers, and with plenty of native flora and fauna in the area it is a paradise for wildlife lovers. 2 miles from Kingussie is the RSPB Insh Marshes Reserve, one of the finest wetlands conservation areas in the UK where many events are organized throughout the summer. Alternatively, experience the wonderful Highland Wildlife Park with its tigers and polar bears, or the award winning Highland Folk Museum at Kingussie and Newtonmore. Shop, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

Customer Reviews of Dunlorn, Kingussie - Sleeps 7
1st comment: Excellent - first class accommodation! May 2012.
2nd comment: Fantastic property! We had an amazing time! Can not fault it! Would recommend this property to anyone looking for a nice relaxing break in an exceptionally beautiful house. April 2012.
3rd comment: Beautiful house. Kids and dog loved the garden. Plenty of space for kids and dog to run around. House very warm and cosy. April 2012.
4th comment: This cottage was a great place for a family holiday. Quiet, yet walking distance from the shops and station in Kingussie. There was also a good library for a rainy day. It was a good location for our holiday which included water sports at Loch Insh and walking in the Cairn Gorms. Aug 2011.
5th comment: A lovely homely house to come home to in the evening. Great space for the children to run around. A few logs provided for the log burner for the first night would have been appreciated. The winking owl in Aviemore is a great place to eat. Landmark park a great day out for the kids. All in all a good base to tour from and lots of places to explore on the doorstep. Aug 2011.
6th comment: Very comfortable and cosy, a home from home. Particularly liked the sun room. Wonderful base for walking - the walk at the back of the golf course towards Newtonmore was excellent. We hope to be back next year. July 2011.
7th comment: Dunlorn was an excellent property to stay in. Everything in the house was of very high standard and there was more than enough indoor and outdoor space for everybody. The property was located in a quiet part of Kingussie and was on the edge of a couple of lovely walks around the town. Kingussie itself had plenty to offer, including a railway station which was useful as this enabled us to travel by train to Inverness and Avimore rather than driving, adding to the relaxation of our holiday. I would definately recommend this property to anyone wanting a beautiful time away either to just relax or visit the various places in the area. My family and I enjoyed the property so much we are definately thinking about going back again. June 2011.
8th comment: What a wonderful place, everything in the accommodation looked brand new, freshly painted, very tastefully done - couldn’t ask for more. April 2011.
9th comment: Fantastic house. We spent a week here in April 2011 and had a wonderful time. Well located, lovely decor, great garden and loved the sun room. April 2011.
