    Nice property, great location especially if you have a car. Good base for Cairngorms, nature reserves, etc. Red Squirrel visited garden, deer outside garden. Fairly close to local shops, etc. Would definitely go again if we visit Highlands.

  • Ok but needs some tlc!

    Submitted on 09/04/2018 by Guest from Stirling

    The cottage itself is quite quaint and ok for 4 adults. Unfortunately we found 2 cracked wine glasses during our stay, one which broke and we have replaced with a 4 pack as you cant just buy one glass. Single beds really need double duvets and the double bed a king size duvet. Living room windows would be better with blinds rather than curtains as the windows are so small. Few areas needing painted eg wc has stud marks showing as does main bedroom where heater has been moved. Overall though the location was great, 10 mins walk to town - 25 mins to rothiemurchus!

    Hi there This cottage was not very good. Level on cleaning was terrible. Dirt on toilet base. Dirty Cotten buds in the corner of our bedroom. Found a pair of pants in bedside cabinet. Lack of good seating in living room. It was well equipped and a good location.

    Mr J Clube, owner of Abernethy cottage Reply on 01/07/2017
    I am very sorry you did not find the house to your liking and as much as other guests that have stayed, we really want to ensure people have a nice base for a great holiday. The same cleaners as usual had cleaned it, and reviews often praise their work unprompted. It is difficult to know what happened this time. They said they were surprised by the review. The armchairs and sofa are one year old, replacing others that were beginning to look old. We sat in them before buying them to check how they felt, but acknowledge that everyone has different preferences.

  • Calm, quiet and welcoming

    Lots to like and a few things that could´ve been better. Pluses; called up and welcomed us efter booking, easy to access keys to the house, big parking space, fairly well sized house, house in a calm and quiet area, lots of TV-channels, nice table outside for dining, well located for both the Cairngorms and road-trips in all directions, lots of good advice in folders and on maps on the walls for stores, activities, hikes etc. Negatives; confusing info about wifi (one set of papers said there was and one that thre wasn´t), luckily we had wifi in the rental car couse we couldn´t find any internet in the house. Knifes in the kitchen could´ve been sharper and the fridge/freezer were on the small side.

    Submitted on 26/02/2017 by Guest from Endon

    We had a wonderful week in the cottage. The location was perfect for getting into aviemore and the surrounding area and for accessing trails and walks but far enough out of town to be quiet and peaceful. We mainly drove into town but it was possible to walk. The area is well set up for cycling too. Local coop easy to reach and the pizza takeaway was good. The cottage was clean, warm and well equipped. Plenty of hot water and the beds were comfy. The garage was useful for storing bikes etc. and the children liked being close to the playground. We had a small problem with one of the tv cables being missing but this was swiftly sorted after a text message to Michelle. Our only slight criticism would be that the sofa was quite small and not very comfy and it would be nice to have a couple of footstools to put our feet up after a long, active day but this wouldn't stop us coming back!

    First, excuse my poor English. I very enjoyed by the confort and the quality of this cottage. The location is very central between the east and the west coasts and the natural park is very beautiful. The Aviemore town is a very nice village with many shops. A little commentary: should translate electro household appliances operating instructions for the foreigners

    We rented the cottage for three days. It is a small full house in a nice neighbourhood. There is a little path that leads to the town centre (10 min walking) or one can obviously drive. The house is well supplied and comfortable with TV and Wifi. Everything is in quite good condition with a couple minor exceptions. We could tell someone had smoked once in the house, though only in the living room. Very few things were missing that can be useful when living somewhere for a few days: a sponge to do dishes with, something to wipe tables. Otherwise it was great. The neighbourhood was quiet and how few interactions with neighbours pleasant. We would do it all over again in a heartbeat!

    Submitted on 28/10/2015 by Ian from Clitheroe

    Very good, good value for money and close walk to Aviemore, we didn't take full advantage of the cottage because we ate out and so didn't use the kitchen and because it was winter we couldn't really sit out in the garden. If we stayed there again I would take bicycles because we could store then in the garage and I would consider going during the summer months.

    We truly enjoyed our stay at Abernethy Cottage, located in a very quiet area but still within easy distance of Aviemore centre/shopping and other facilities and generally well placed for doing things around the Cairngorms/the Highlands. The cottage had everything we needed, spacious and warm, all clean and well maintained, good shower, comfy beds, big collection of games, books and DVDs, all the necessary households appliances. A minor problem with one of the latter was promptly sorted out by Gael Holiday Homes. Couldn't ask for more!

    Abernethy Cottage is in a quiet location a few minutes drive from the centre of Aviemore, or within walking distance if you prefer. This two-bedroom bungalow is quite spacious, with one double and one twin bedroom, good kitchen space with a table and chairs, and plenty of seating in the lounge. Overall it is well-equipped and furnished to a good standard. We found it very comfortable and warm, and really enjoyed our short stay. Aviemore itself is a great base for exploring the local area - there is a good choice of restaurants and shops (including a fairly large Tesco) and an Information Centre. We would be happy to recommend Abernethy Cottage for your stay in Aviemore.

    We are very familiar with Speyside having lived there for 7 years and return regularly to visit friends and enjoy a break. Abernethy Cottage is well situated in a quiet area of Aviemore. It is very clean and comfortable, well equipped to cater for families. It would also serve as a comfortable base for hillwalkers, skiiers, climbers, mountain bikers even canoeists with ample storage for kit in the garage. Aviemore is well situated in the valley for families, providing the most choice of places to eat with good access to glenmore and the range of activities on offer. I would use Abernethy again when we visit in future. It is good value for money compared to other self catering options on offer.

    This is our 2nd weekend break at Abernethy Cottage, Aviemore and again it was very enjoyable. The location of the cottage is superb in relation to access to town centre and also cycling path for families to Rothiemurchus. The cottage is situated in a very quiet cul-de-sac. The cottage was clean and tidy and had everything we required from kitchen equipment to childrens DVD, colouring stuff and games. We would definitely not hesitate in booking again when we next return to Aviemore nor would we hesitate in recommending it to friends.
