A contemporary, smart and spacious lodge in Aviemore, perfect for outdoor enthusiasts and active families.

Trails End Lodge is located in High Burnside, a prestigious development of large family homes at the edge of an ancient Caledonian Pine forest, and which enjoys wonderful views across to the Cairngorms. It really is the perfect location for an Aviemore stay, with the village centre only a 30 minute walk away, but with almost immediate access to vast Kinveachy Forest. The forest contains an endless variety of natural mountain bike and running trails – from which this lodge takes its name.

The gate into the forest is only a couple of minutes walk from the front door. Turning south from the gate into the forest, you can head cross country for Craigellachie Nature Reserve and spot its Peregrine Falcons circling overhead. Heading north through the woods you can cycle to Carrbridge or Boat of Garten. Or if you are confident and experienced enough, perhaps you could try your luck on one of the infamous downhill mountain bike trails through the trees – such as “Trail to Nowhere” – rated as double black diamond - though be warned, these are not for the faint-hearted, or the beginner! The forest is also home to a wide variety of native Highland wildlife, including roe deer, red squirrels and capercaillie.

This lodge itself is the ideal blend of stylish and contemporary design with practical features and layout. The huge family kitchen has both a breakfast bar and a large table which easily seats 8. From the kitchen, patio doors lead out to the large lawned garden, perfect for family sports and games. In fact High Burnside is perfect for a family stay, with its own children’s play park and fenced sports area as well as safe and quiet residential roads, with the lodge itself located on a cul de sac.

The master bedroom has a super-king bed and large en-suite with a double shower. There is another bedroom with a double bed upstairs and also a king bedroom downstairs. There is a lovely, bright triple room with single bed, mid sleeper and truckle bed. All bedrooms have a double built in wardrobe, and the master has two. The family bathroom is on the first floor and there is also a downstairs loo off the entrance hall. The lodge’s lounge is spacious with lots of natural light and a contemporary Morso wood burning stove, large TV with Free Sat and DVD player.

Trails End Lodge has plenty of storage for all your outdoor clothing and equipment, as well as a secure garage and carport which usefully incorporates the wood store. A washing machine and convenient drying area are located in the utility room leading from the kitchen to the back door.

Trails End Lodge is all about luxurious but relaxed comfort – the ideal place to unwind after a day of Cairngorms adventures.

"Thank you for a very relaxing three days! The house is a great space for us (5 +dog) and we’ve enjoyed its spaciousness and simplicity. We’ve ventured out for walks at Rothiemurchus and Craigellachie. The kids enjoyed the new pump track at Boat of Garten. Pizzariach was delicious and we’re heading to Route 7 cafe on our way home today. " February 2022

"The lodge was the perfect base for us to explore the amazing landscape surrounding Aviemore. We particularly enjoyed our walks around Loch Morlich and Loch an Eilein. The farm shop and cafe at Rothiemurchus were a welcome break. " February 2022

"We had a fantastic family get together with kids and grandkids. We thoroughly enjoyed the lodge and using the well equipped kitchen. Seasgair - an excellent company to deal with. We will definitely be in contact to arrange a return visit. " April 2022

"Thank you so much for a wonderful stay! Beautiful house with absolutely everything you need. The log fire is fantastic - especially when it was snowing outside! The location of the house is also brilliant, it's so close to everything. We will be returning in the future. " March 2022

"We all enjoyed our stay at Trails End Lodge and it is the ideal location to explore the Cairngorm area. The house is well equipped and spacious and we loved watching the ever changing view up to the Cairngorm mountain range from the large garden. With forest walks in the hills behind and a woodland walk into Aviemore, this is a dog happy location. The local welcome pack was a lovely surprise and very much appreciated. " May 2022

"I just want to say thank you so much for a lovely stay at Trails End Lodge, everything was just perfect. We loved being close enough to the centre of Aviemore to walk into town. The neighbourhood that the lodge is in is just lovely and so quiet. Our break was so peaceful. These are crazy times we are living through right now and it was so nice to be able to get away and have a change of scene. The lodge was spotlessly clean and we were left a lovely welcome pack of coffee and other local produce which I wasn't expecting. My son absolutely loved the huge garden as well. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, and would choose Trails End lodge again. Thanks again for a lovely stay" November 2020

"Just a belated thank you for the lovely stay we had at Trails End Lodge. It was a fabulous place to stay as a family, albeit a smaller gathering due to Covid restrictions, none the less very enjoyable, just what we all needed after a difficult year. The Covid measures put in place were very reassuring and well thought out. The Lodge was spotlessly clean, well equipped and comfortable. Great location for getting out into the wilds whilst being nearby to those all essential amenities….shops, food and bars! Aviemore seemed very Covid aware and well organised. Many thanks also for the “goodies” on arrival, much appreciated! We’ve been visiting Aviemore for many years, this is one of the best properties we’ve stayed in, We’ll definitely return! " June 2021

"We had a fantastic time at Trails End Lodge. The lodge is very spacious, with a lovely large garden for Brodie to explore.

Another fab lodge in a very peaceful location and we look forward to our stay with you in March." September 2021
