This detached single-storey cottage in Aviemore sleeps up to five people in two bedrooms.

Strathisla is a detached single-storey cottage in the Highland town of Aviemore within the Cairngorms National Park. The cottage has a double room and a room with bunks and an additional folding bed. There is also a shower room, an additional cloakroom, a kitchen and a sitting room with dining area and open fire.

Outside is off road parking for two cars, and lawned garden areas to the front and rear. Strathisla is an ideal base for enjoying all that Aviemore has to offer, from the town amenities to the surrounding countryside which offers walking and cycling, skiing, watersports and more.


Perfect Aviemore base
Just came back from a superb week staying at Strathisla. This is our fourth stay at this wonderful cottage. The cottage has everything you could possibly need for a weeks stay and is in an ideal location for travelling around the Aviemore area. It's a nice walk into town for a beer or meal in the evening and a great base to explore from. The garden is ideal for both our daughter and our dog and we are always very happy with our stay here. The beds are very comfortable and it's very clean and tidy and has cleaning equipment on site which allows you to tidy up before leaving. I?d highly recommend this cottage as a place to stay.

Lovely, Cosy Cottage
Strathisla is lovely, cosy cottage. An extremely well-equipped home from home. The garden is nice and we liked the steam railway running past the cottage. It's in a great location for exploring the local area on foot or further afield by car. The Broadband/wifi connection is good. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We would go back.

Simply excellent
A peaceful weeks stay in a beautifully presented cottage. Felt like home the entire time we were there. The Strathspey rail line runs right next to the house - Fantastic if you or the kids like steam trains (But don't let the proximity put you off, there's only a few trains each week). Plenty of space for parking and an enclosed garden which is not overlooked allows for a lot of time to be spent lounging in the Scottish sun,weathet permitting. On a side note, plan petrol in advance - The petrol station in Aviemore is currently closed and the closest is 15 miles away.

This is a cosy cottage in a great location. It has a well-equipped kitchen and the open fire gave the children lots of fun toasting marshmallows. We also enjoyed watching the steam train going past the cottage. The second toilet was very handy. This was our third stay at Strathisla and we will definitely be back again.

Liked the general area, in easy reach of hills and forests, and only 30 odd miles from the Moray coast. The house was comfortable and in a quiet spot. It was great to see the steam train going past the house, brought back memories of our childhoods. Aviemore has good facilities within easy walking distance.
