Firhall sits in the heart of charming Boat of Garten, on the main street. This beautiful Victorian lodge has been lovingly re-designed and refurbished by its current owners to create a thoroughly modern, comfortable and relaxing home with loads of character.
The light, bright and super-stylish kitchen is the heart of this lovely house, with a generous table that easily seats 8 with room to spare, a double range cooker with an induction hob, and a beautiful original fireplace. The kitchen has been brilliantly equipped with everything you might need for creating fantastic feasts for eight. This big room with its high ceilings is definitely designed for sociable cooking and dining - but should you prefer someone else to take care of the meal planning and prep for a night or two, you’re in luck. One of the best restaurants in the whole valley - Andersons - is just a stone’s throw away over the road!
The sitting room with its wood burning stove is large and comfortable and has been equipped with sports and children’s channels on the BT TV - so everyone should be entertained - even on a rainy day! At the back of the ground floor and looking out to the garden, is an en-suite double bedroom with a shower. This would in fact make an ideal room for a less mobile guest, who could also make use of the very useful mobility ramp leading up to the back door.
Along the corridor there is a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer, butlers sink, a bench and lots of storage, as well as a downstairs loo.
On the first floor is the large twin bedroom and a contemporary luxury bathroom with a large rain shower and separate bathtub. The master bedroom has a kingsize bed and large en-suite shower room; whilst the fourth bedroom has another kingsize bed and en-suite loo. Both bedrooms are very spacious and could both easily accommodate a cot if needed.
The lawned and gravelled garden to the front of Firhall is the perfect place for enjoying your morning coffee in the sunshine, whilst watching the world go by in this lovely little village. Round the back, the garden is fully enclosed, so that children and pets can run and play to their hearts’ content. The outside eating area to the side of the house catches the evening sun, so it’s ideal for barbecues and al fresco eating in the warmer months, with a fire pit to keep you toasty when it turns a bit chillier. There is also plenty of space at the front of the house to park 4 cars comfortably. For the cycling enthusiast there is a bike shelter equipped with hose and pump.
You are conveniently close to all the village amenities - from places to eat and stock up on groceries, forest trails to walk and cycle along, the tennis club, steam railway and the brilliant Ride Cairngorm for bike hire...this really is a perfect position in one of the most popular and centrally-situated villages in Strathspey.
Firhall is a deceptively relaxed modern lodge - with loads of luxurious space for family and friends to enjoy the finest of Cairngorms stays in a wonderful Highland village.
"Once again we had a great stay - brilliant house and love the new bike store. Weather was on our side with plenty of snow so did skiing, biking and some great walks. Leaving the sun and snow behind for next time! " February 2022
"We had an amazing time at Firhall - it is the best holiday property we have ever stayed in, and it’s dog friendly too. The house itself was immaculately clean and very comfortable & the kitchen fully equipped. The beds are really comfortable and the showers in all bathrooms have excellent water pressure with plenty of hot water. The enclosed garden was large enough for our dogs to run around in and we loved using the fire pit in the evening. Boat of Garten is an excellent location for a holiday with so many walks through the forest or along the Speyside Way on your doorstep." June 2022
"We’ve had a wonderful time staying here (“awesome according to the kids”). The house is beautiful and has everything you could need. Being able to relax in front of the fire at night, and have so much space in the garden to build snowmen and have snowball fights has been a joy. With lots to do in the area we’ve enjoyed our time here and hope to come back again. Thanks for facilitating a brilliant family break! " February 2022
"We love Firhall. It is a stunning house in an idyllic location. Absolutely perfect for our needs. It’s certainly the best appointed holiday home that we have visited. Weather was mixed but we managed to make use of the fire pit and bbq. The log burner was also a hit!" May 2022
"We had a great time at Firhall and it had everything we wanted in a holiday cottage. The location in the village was great. We ate and drank at Andersons and The Boat, both were very good. The Post Office was handy for baked goods and an ice cream at the end of a walk. This was the fourth time we have used Seasgair and we wouldn't hesitate to use again. Thanks so much. " July 2022
"Firhall is a beautiful house. Well equipped with everything you need. It's very warm, comfortable, cosy and spotlessly clean. The wonderful weather this weekend was an added bonus. Will not hesitate to come back again. " March 2022
"Another wonderful stay at Firhall. First time in the Summer, so good to make use of the lovely garden, firepit and BBQ. Great walks and cycling right from the doorstep. Look forward to returning again. Thanks for a fabulous stay. " August 2022
"We all had an amazing time at Firhall. From the minute we walked in the door it felt like a home from home. The house was so comfy with beautifully furnished bedrooms with amazing beds that you just sank into, after our long walks in the beautiful Highland countryside. The kitchen had everything you could want and more. Firhall has the added bonus of Anderson’s restaurant being directly across the road. The house is perfectly situated within Boat of Garten, with everything you could need on your doorstep. The fully enclosed garden was perfect for Brodie, and we even managed a seat in the garden a couple of times in the warm September sunshine. Of course, the new local celebrity in the front garden “Asterix in Scotland” resulted in people stopping to take photos and having a chat with us. We really didn’t want to come home but look forward to our next visit…..hopefully next year. " September 2022
"We loved our stay at Firhall and it was great to be in the heart of the village, with all the local amenities a walk away. The house itself was very well appointed and nicely decorated. The beds were very comfortable and of a good size. The kitchen had all modern amenities and the large kitchen table was great for entertaining round. Fortunately we had no need of the log burner due to the great weather over the week but the bbq got a good work out." August 2020
"We had a lovely time. The house was lovely, it was immaculate, tastefully decorated and everything we needed was there. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay with you and would certainly book with you again. And to top it all the weather was kind to us too. " September 2020
"We very much enjoyed our stay at Firhall. Inside it has been beautifully and sensitively modernised and from the moment we opened the door it was clear that this was going to be fantastic accommodation for our break and to celebrate our daughter's 30th birthday. The outdoor areas provided various options for sheltered outdoor entertaining. The gardens were secure and safe, so great for our two dogs. I loved cooking in the very well equipped kitchen. The booking process was easy and your website very informative. The Firhall app was extremely helpful both with planning but also arrival and during our stay. There were a range of lovely woodland walks just across the road from Firhall making Boat of Garten a great location. So much to do in this beautiful area we were sad to leave. This was our second booking through Seasgair and we would certainly recommend you to anyone, we hope to make more bookings in the future and indeed have already been looking. " May 2022
"Thank you so much for making our break so comfortable and luxurious. The family had a ball - wonderful home and location. We’re keen to come back but availability looks scarce this year which says a great deal about Firhill!! Such a lovely place and space to unwind. " June 2021
"We had a lovely stay at Firhall, a wonderful house and plenty of space in a quiet location. Boat of Garten is a great base for walking and the local shop is excellent as is the local pub. Very tastefully decorated and well equipped throughout. We were very lucky with the weather and walked every day during our holiday. Highly recommended!" July 2021
"We had the most amazing stay at Firhall. It was so warm and welcoming. The Christmas tree was such a special touch as well and the treats left for our stay. I have already recommended Firhall to lots of my friends and family. We will 100% be back. " December 2021
"We had a great stay at Firhall. It’s a lovely house and we were very impressed with how well it was kitted out including “little things” like a decent selection of sharp kitchen knives. Every detail inside and out seemed to have been thought through, so credit to Seasgair." December 2021
"An indelible memory is etched into our souls of nights playing silly games and watching movies in front of the fire, and of brisk walks in the stunning surrounding countryside. Our stay was delightful, and full of laughter sitting around the kitchen table." January 2023
"Fantastic house, fantastic stay, fantastic time for six exhausted Mums away from their hectic lives. A weekend of laughter and fun - what a great place for us to relax and explore!" February 2023
"Thank you for the most wonderful stay at Firhall. I don’t really have enough superlatives for how much we loved it. It was so comfortable and well furnished, we basically loved everything about it, down to the artwork and the well equipped kitchen. It is generously proportioned and there was plenty of space. The location is beautiful and we were able to spend several days skiing, as well as doing some gorgeous hikes. We felt utterly blessed and it was just everything we hoped for and more. It’s so rare and special when somewhere exceeds all your expectations. Thank you again - for the fabulous property and also all the clear communication and organisation. " February 2023
