Forest Cottage is an enchanting little red-roofed cottage sitting amongst the stunning pine forest on the shore of Loch an Eilein on the Rothiemurchus Estate. You can walk around the loch from the front door and enjoy the peace and tranquility as well as the spectacular views of the loch, its island with a ruined medieval castle, and the mountains rising up behind the forest on the far shore. There are only two cottages on entire perimeter of the loch, the other being its sister property Loch an Eilein Cottage. Forest Cottage lies along a private forest track, closed to public vehicles.
The cottage has been lovingly renovated and interior designed by a very experienced and talented team. This is a delightful and deceptively luxurious cottage with unlimited attention to detail to ensure you won't want for anything during your stay. There is a gorgeous little twin bedroom upstairs designed for children.
There is a lovely spacious and secure garden to the back of the cottage with plenty of space for dogs (and humans) to burn off some energy. There is also a lovely paved patio with outside chairs and a rustic table for you to enjoy the summer days and evenings and watch the red squirrels and wild birds at the feeders. There is a charcoal barbecue so that you can dine alfresco.
Forest Cottage has a wonderfully cosy living room with an original stone hearth, wood burning stove and lovely window seat looking out to the garden and forest beyond. The kitchen is traditional in style yet fully equipped with modern appliances and all the equipment you could hope for including a fantastic modern range cooker. The sumptuous super-king bed is waiting for you to plunge into after an active day in the Cairngorms - or you might like to enjoy the rain shower or a relaxing whirlpool bath while watching a movie in the spacious bathroom before bedtime.
