    This is the third stay at Squirrel View and it was as good as ever. The property is clean and well equipped. The location is excellent with those interested in outdoor pursuits spoiled for choice. The cottage is neither too remote nor too overlooked.

    Perfect location, very quiet backwater but allowed access to all areas. Very good walks nearby. Property superbly clean and well appointed. Warmly recommended. And plenty of 'Squirrel views'

    Ideal for two pre-school children and parents. Easy walking to well stocked co-op, with lots of things to do nearby : free Highland folk museum, Highland wildlife park and Landmark centre (take tesco days out vouchers).

    What a lovely cottage! Everything was very clean when we arrived and it was very well-equipped. The delicious brownies and wine were greatly appreciated :) And we managed to see red squirrels on 2 occasions. It is a good location to visit the highlands especially the Cairngorms area. There is a Co-op supermarket just down the road and around 3 restaurants, we tried the Balavil Hotel Restaurant which served delicious food. We would return to this cosy cottage anytime! The only problem is that there is no wifi and our 3g connection also failed inside the cottage.

    Quiet location, easy access to the moors, plenty of places to eat out, a holiday where you do not need to drive to go out for the day, the opportunity to see wildlife from your window, then this is the place to go. We had a red squirrel who came to eat on a tree opposite the window every day. There were ducks, a pheasant and many types of birds. The wildcat trail was great fun, there is a lake to walk around, and the Highland Museum of rural life is only a 20 minute walk. The access to the moors is only a 5 minute walk away. Would recommend the Glen Hotel for food at lunchtime or in the evening. One of the most relaxing holidays we have had.
