"We loved this place with its red roof, located in the forest near Loch an Eilein just outside Aviemore. Forest Cottage is a wonderful, cosy hideaway set amongst the forest below the Cairngorms mountains. Packed full of character and charm with luxury facilities, it’s an exceptional holiday house. We'll be back!"   November 2018

"Thank you so much, we've had a blissful few days here cooking, sleeping and running, and will definitely return in the winter."   October 2018

"Without doubt, one of the nicest places we have stayed. The cottage is beautiful – spotlessly clean, super comfortable (I need to get some of those pillows!), brilliantly styled and utterly charming. So many extra wee touches to make you feel well and truly at home. As for the location, it was just perfect too – tucked away in the forest, 2 minutes to the loch and so peaceful. The autumn colours all around were stunning. Well worthy of 5 stars!"   October 2018

"This is an amazing little cottage right in the middle of the forest. If you want somewhere to go where it is quiet and restful, this is the place for you... Would highly recommend as a first class retreat."   September 2018

"We've just round our favourite place in the world. We absolutely adore the cottage and the outstanding countryside. We are already planning our return."   August 2018

"What a wonderful little cottage, it was just perfect! The cottage had all of the necessities and it was lovely and cosy. Thank you for sharing your piece of heaven with us."   August 2018

"What a beautiful location! Such a special place (we really had to make ourselves leave the cottage each day!) We enjoyed walks around the loch and to the 'green' loch and a stunning drive to Balmoral Castle too. Great meal and Scottish music at The Old Bridge too!"  August 2018

"Here again! Twice in two months... When here do the things you don't normally do like take a bottle of fizzy down to the lochside on a Summer's day (of even Spring/Autumn/Winter!) and watch the bemused looks from walkers!! Sad to go but looking forward to coming back."   July 2018

"Just returned from a wonderful week at Forest Cottage for our mini moon (also with our dog, who loved it so much!) What an amazing place! The location is so peaceful, we loved looking out into the forest and walking out the door and going down to the Loch. The cottage has been finished to a very high standard and has lots of little luxuries (comfy bed, jacuzzi bath, fresh flowers on arrival, robes and slippers). It’s well positioned for exploring the local area we hiked up Ben Macdui, Cairngorm, visited the amazing coastline (Cullen and Findlater Castle) and a few other lochs in the area. The cottage is both super cosy and great for summers days. We experienced some cold weather when we first arrived, but the underfloor heating and wood burner kept the place lovely and warm, and we also experienced some hot sunny weather, the garden is perfect for al fresco dining :) We loved the cottage so much, we ate in every eve! The kitchen was very well equipped so it was nice to be able to do this, and were able to enjoy the peaceful setting and have some pure relaxation after tiring days out hiking. We were all sad to leave and hope to return sometime in the future."    June 2018

"We have had a perfect holiday in this beautiful cottage, which has enabled us to explore Loch an Eilein and the surrounding area. The shores of the loch were the perfect setting for us to become engaged and it will be something we will treasure forever!... We couldn't have wished for more."    June 2018

"What a lovely cottage in wonderful surroundings, every little detail inside has been carefully thought through down to the welcoming vases of flowers. Having breakfast watching red squirrels doing the same about 40 feet away was such a privilege. My husband surprised me on my birthday by laying on bubbles and a meal when we returned back in the evening, and sitting by the loch at dusk... two unforgettable events. Thank you, a perfect place."    June 2018

"We had an absolutely wonderful holiday in this gorgeous cottage! The location is perfect for walking around Loch an Eilein and a very short drive from the Cairngorms for some Munro bagging! We felt so at home in the cottage and loved watching the squirrels and birds outside from bed each morning. This will no doubt be the first of many stays here. Thank you for making it so perfect."    May 2018

"Thank you for an amazing holiday. The cottage is perfect, in a perfect location and we were lucky enough to have a great spell of weather while we were here. Look forward to our next stay."    May 2018 

"What an amazing find! We feel so lucky to have been among the first guests to stay at this beautiful cottage. Every little detail has been thought of - stunning decor and finished to such a high standard and dog friendly - perfect!! We were blessed with excellent weather during our stay but with the wood burner and underfloor heating the cottage would be cozy in all weathers! We have loved having such scenic walks right on our doorstep. All in all a fantastic long weekend. We will be recommending to our friends and will definitely be back! Thank you!    May 2018

"We have walked past this cottage so many times during our many visits to Loch an Eilein and to have stayed in it is so special. It is amazing and just perfect - every little detail has been thought out. Waking up to 3 red squirrels in the garden was a delight... The first of many visits we hope!"    April 2018

"What a lovely weekend. Stunning cottage, beautifully done. Home from home. So special to have somewhere so lovely that Daisy (our Dalmatian) is welcome. Walks are tremendous! Thanks again."   April, 2018

"Another great adventure for OTAT Scotland. Everything about the cottage is just so perfect! Had an amazing birthday surprise - staying here, just too short but we will be back!"   April, 2018

"Just  a quick note to say how much we loved Forest Cottage. We feel that Forest Cottage is every bit as special as Loch an Eilein cottage. When we arrived, we were totally blown away with the interior of the cottage, it was so bright and welcoming. We loved all the little quirky extras. We felt very privileged to share a garden with trees that must be hundreds of years old. We could have sat all day and watched the birds and red squirrels. We enjoyed the peace and tranquility. However, we had our dog with us,  and he loved being able to go for long walks straight from the front door. No driving. We will definitely return. Thank you."   April, 2018
