Katchana the Special place.
This was our first time at Katchana and what a place. It was very clean tidy and felt like home. We loved how close to nature you are and on arrival we was greeted by a deer on the drive and lots of lovely birds. There is plenty to do in and around the area. And after a long day's walking it's great to relax in the hot tub We will be going again

Dreams do come true.
This is the second time at Katchana and we are booking for 2019. It really is a little gem of a property. We had a badger on the window sill, a pheasant tapping on the window, sheep drinking from the dogs bowl and deer on the driveway just to name a few of the wildlife. The views are perfect. Plenty to do and see. The property feels like home and the only time there are long faces are when its time to leave. another fabulous holiday.Thank you.

Perfect Xmas retreat
This was our second Xmas at Katchana and again it was simply fantastic. Gavin had excellent contact with us and provided some lovely festive touches before we arrived. The place was spotless when we arrived and everything is there for you to help cook a perfect meal. The log fire is fantastic and our Dalmatian Poppy spent a lot of time here while we sat in the hot tub enjoying the stars. The snow came on the 27th and it was the icing on the cake. A fantastic Xmas adventure again. Visit Ruthven Barracks in Kingussie for some beautiful views.

Amazing holiday
After 3 years staying near Braemar we decided to try a different part of the Cairngorms and so glad we did and found Katchana. It is a very special lodge from the lounge with its panoramic views, the hot tub, to its location. We really didn't want to leave..... It is set up a long drive overlooking loch Insch with a couple of other houses nearby but they were empty during our stay so we had the hamlet of Farr to ourselves. The wildlife round the lodge was amazing - we were visited by the badgers every night which just made our holiday, roe deer during the day, red deer in the field below in the evening and too many birds to mention throughout the day. Although red squirrels don't visit the property, just a 5 minute walk away is Inshriach forest and we saw some there as well as enjoyed lots of beautiful walks with our dog. The location is great for visiting lots of different places in the Cairngorms with the bonus of coming back to complete peace and tranquility. We are now planning a return visit next year!
