Stable Self-Catering Cottage
Stable cottage, called Cairngorm cottage sleeps 4 on Airbnb, is a self-catering ground floor cottage. It is wheelchair accessible with wide doors, a ramp to the door, no internal steps and a very large walk in shower room and toilet. It comprises a combined living/ dining room containing twin beds and a kitchen area, and a small bedroom with two bunk beds. It thus sleeps 4 and works well for a family with 2 young children. The kitchen contains a cooker, microwave, fridge, and all cooking equipment. There is a TV with internal DVD player, hi-fi and wi-fi.
There is shared access to the garden, parking area, washing/ drying room, and ironing board/ iron. The cottage faces North West with superb views up to the Monadhliath mountains. It is equipped to the same standard as the other 2 cottages but the small bedroom meant it was graded 2* by VisitScotland from 2007-12 (we have now left the scheme).
The cottage is regularly painted and upgraded, last painted 2018. Original artwork within the cottage gives it a homely feel. There is a selection of books and games as well as local information and a walking guide. The living area has non-slip flooring, ideal for doing artwork.
This cottage is available for long stays and at reduced rates for singles in low season only (please enquire; offer depends on availability). Prices include 4 towels, bedlinen, and electricity.
“Anne’s cottage is everything you need for a few days self-catering and walking. Equipped for cooking with plenty of cupboard and fridge space. Beds are comfortable – one is in the main kitchen/living room but it didn’t cause us any issues. Shower is hot. The cottage is directly at the bottom of some lovely hill walking, including a munro or two so great for folk like us arriving by train without a car. Anne and Ian were very friendly and welcoming. Would stay here again :).” Airbnb review, September 2020
“We loved our stay at Croft Stable. The cottage is lovely with amazing views of the Cairngorms surrounded by amazing countryside. Our teenagers just loved the area and being able to hike and do their usual running surrounded by all that amazing scenery. The owners were great providing superb information and assistance for our first trip to the Highlands to be unforgettable.” Tripadvisor review, June 2021
