Customer Reviews of Livet House, Tomintoul - Sleeps 5-6
1st comment: Location was ideal as a base for visiting the area. Pub, cafe, grocery and other shops all within a 100m walk proved to be a great advantage. We visited during the severe winter weather at the beginning of 2011; there was significant risk of road closure. During periods of potential severe weather a location like this is a must. The owner was notably helpful and courteous. Jan 2011.
