Carn Eilrig

Carn Eilrig

Within a ten minute walk from the centre of Aviemore, this recently constructed Scandinavian-style log cabin has been built to the highest standard and beautifully finished. If you’re looking for a comfortable base to explore the Aviemore area, Carn Eilrig and its sister chalet Gael Cham offer luxurious self-catering accommodation in this picturesque corner of the Scottish Highlands.

Aviemore lies in the heart of the Cairngorm National Park and at the head of the Speyside Way, with a wide variety of activities and attractions on its doorstep from mountain biking to water sports. Whether you’re interested in fishing, golfing, walking or wildlife watching, there is something for everyone in the UK’s largest National Park.

The nearby Rothiemurchas Estate is ideal for walking and biking in tranquil surroundings, with a range of activities on offer such as quad biking, pony trekking, and clay pigeon shooting, plus wildlife watching opportunities with Speyside Wildlife. Osprey can be seen at the RSPB Osprey Centre at nearby Boat of Garten, around 6 miles away, and the Highland Wildlife Park is a popular local attraction. The UK’s largest bottlenose dolphins can be found in the Moray Firth and you can also visit the UK’s only wild reindeer herd at the Cairngorm Reindeer Centre.

Carn Eilrig is also ideally located for hitting the slopes in the winter months and if you’re not into snow sports or hill walking, you can still enjoy the panoramic mountain views by taking a trip up the funicular at Cairngorm Mountain. The Inverness and Moray areas, with Loch Ness, Cawdor Castle, a string of distilleries and lovely beaches, are easy day trips from Aviemore.

Guest Comments

Cabin was very comfortable, with everything needed for an enjoyable stay. Was easy to walk in and out of Aviemore everything close at hand but still a quiet location.
Joan, Dundee : 28th September, 2016

Very comfortable accommodation easy access to Aviemore and the surrounding areas great base for touring.
Pat, Musselburgh : 16th September, 2016

Very nice lodge with every facility you could require such as washer/dryer, microwave, fridge etc. The lodge was clean and roomy and not over-looked by neighbours. It also had great views of the Cairngorm mountains.
Andy, Basingstoke : 3rd September, 2016

The lodge has everything required for a comfortable stay in one of the best holidays destinations in Scotland. Its well appointed with cooker, dishwasher and washer/dryer and easily accommodates six people. Highly recommended.
Robbie, Keith : 1st August, 2016

The lodge was in a great location within a quiet housing estate however only 10 minutes walk into the town centre. The lodge itself was extremely spacious across all rooms with a high level of cleanliness. I would highly recommend the lodge.
Stephen, Paisley : 18th July, 2016

We stayed here for Christmas some years ago and had a great time, glad to say our return trip didn't disappoint. The property is spacious and well equipped with a surprisingly comfy bed! It is well maintained, has good views and an excellent location, peaceful but close enough to the amenities to be able to stroll to the shops without having to drive. It was an excellent base for all Aviemore and the surrounding area has to offer, we did many different walks and things but the green loch, Cairngorm and afternoon tea on the Strathspey Railway are all recommended. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return again.
Katy, Bexley : 18th June, 2016

Excellent clean warm and cosy. Area very good easy walking distance for pubs and meals

Carolyn, Ashford : 24th March, 2016

The location was ideal, just 2mins drive from the centre of Aviemore and part of a housing estate but with a private garden out the back that looked on to a field so plenty of privacy but assured security in a housing estate at the same time. The lodge itself had plenty of room with comfortable living room and dining area. Perfect for a family or group of friends.

Kirsty, Stonehaven : 10th March, 2016

Spacious accomidation, washing machine was handy, en-suite shower was excellent.

We liked - The central location, the surrounding neighbours, the dog being able to go outdoors safely, the accommodation was very spacious and pleasing on the eye, Aviemore had loads to do for all ages, spectacular scenery.
Pam, Shotts : 20th April, 2015

Lovely, modern and very clean accommodation. Well located for easy access to walks for the dog straight from the cabin. The raised decked balcony is a sun trap and pleasant to sit out on.
