Summer holidays in July and August

Summer is a beautiful time to visit the Highlands and the Cairngorm National Park in particular with the light mornings and evenings.

Whether June, July or August, it is still a peaceful time with the area and roads relatively quiet compared to other areas.

The mountains, lochs, forest, beaches and wide open spaces make it a wonderful area to explore for families – whether on bikes, in canoes, walking or by car.

You can take the railway up to the top of Cairngorm, canoe on Loch Morlich or Loch Insh, go to the beaches at Findhorn or Nairn, enjoy the adventure park at Landmark in Carrbridge or explore the numerous trails in Abernethy Forest. The city of Inverness is not far away, nor is the Wildlife Park at Kincraig , Loch Ness or Culloden Battlefield.

There is, of course, also an abundance of wildlife with a wide variety of birds and red squirrels on the feeders we put out in the gardens surrounding the cottages.

We offer weeks in June for £350 and July and August for £460.
