Upper Finlarig Cottages are situated high up in a wonderfully peaceful setting surrounded by fields just over half a mile above the small Highland village of Dulnain Bridge in the Cairngorm National Park.
The Finlarig Burn (stream) runs behind the cottages and a wide variety of bird and wildlife are attracted very close to the cottages either on the feeders we put out or in the fields, including red squirrels, mountain hare and roedeer.
You can read about wildlife photographer Karen Miller’s stay with us, “Living my Wildlife Dream”, under the blog section of this website.
The two self catering cottages are entirely separate in their own gardens and offer numerous walks straight out of the cottage doors with panoramic views of the Cairngorm Mountains themselves. These include walks straight into the hills, along the river and down the quiet road into the village.
The nearest towns are Grantown-on-Spey, which is just 3 miles away, and Aviemore, which is only 10 miles. Upper Finlarig Cottages are very central for exploring the whole of the National Park and beyond. The Landmark Adventure Centre at Carrbridge is very close as well as the local steam train. Both Loch Morlich and Loch Insh are nearby with numerous watersports available. The beaches at Nairn and Findhorn are just 30 minutes away. The Highland capital of Inverness is a similar distance and Loch Ness is only a little further.
Upper Finlarig Cottage and The Shepherd’s Cottage are both well away from any main roads, offering you peace and tranquility and a closeness to nature, yet very close to all the amenities in the area.
