"Our family of 6 and 2 doggies all had a fantastic time as always at the beautiful Cairn Eilrig! I think this was our 4th stay at this lovely wee lodge and to say we all love it is an understatement! We literally step outside the door and we are straight onto the trails which my 3 girls and I love to run on, for the boys they had some brilliant hill walks with the dogs again on our door step. A days cycling was fantastic as well around the trails, never a dull moment and back to the lovely lodge to relax with a wine in the sunroom to admire a beautiful view over the Cairngorms. We truly love this place and looking forward to our next stay already! "

"Riverside was immaculate yet again as this was our 2nd visit. What a wonderful house in a beautiful location, so peaceful and doggy walks right on our doorstep. Also we would like to thank you on our gift pack full of wonderful goodies, it was full of quality food and drinks which we enjoyed. We will see you again in March and looking forward to a different cottage next September."

"We had such a lovely time at the lodge. It was in a beautiful setting and the view onto the golf course was amazing. Loved seeing the deer in the evenings. Enjoyed the evening walks round the golf course with our dog, cycle track right on the doorstep and also enjoyed a few runs. Nice to have the club house for a nice drink early evening outside again with amazing views. The house has such a calming feel to it and the living space is great. Would love to visit in the summer to make use of the balcony, did manage a nice glass of wine wrapped in a blanket enjoying the views. Loved the garage made into a games room. Kitchen was amazing. Overall probably one of the nicest houses I’ve stayed in Aviemore and perfect for a family of 4 and a dog. Will definitely be back 😀"
