Customer Reviews of Baltinna East, near Aviemore - Sleeps 2

1st comment: Fantastic property in fantastic location - ideal for a romantic break. Everything you could want supplied including maps of local area plenty of books. Booked a return visit as soon as we got home. The only negative was we should have booked a longer stay. March 2012.

2nd comment: A wonderful property in a fantastic part of the world. We went up for the snow sports but the wind closed things down but local walks in the snow made up for things. The house was warm and inviting every time we came back. There was plenty of space to keep outdoor clothes separate from indoor. Jan 2012.

3rd comment: The cottage was very well equipped and comfortable, with pretty much everything you could need. The bathroom is really nicely done out as a wet room with a jet shower, which is a nice touch. The location is ideal - the right end of town for the Glen Hotel which suited us very well (great food, beer & quiz night). Local activities I’d recommend are the Wildcat Trail and the Walk @ The Top (Cairngorm Mountain Railway). Sept 2011.

4th comment: Great, contemporary accommodation. Good location for day trips around the Highlands or over to Loch Ness. Aug 2011.
