The only thing I would mention about the location of the property is that it is right on a very busy and fast road(in spite of 30 mph restrictions), which affects sleeping as the bedrooms are at the front of the property..

People should be aware that the cottage was on a busy main road, had to park car .... People should be aware that the cottage was on a busy main road, had to park car on pavement and 1 off our car got bump while parked up outside the cottage, television was too small for room, no where to put groceries and needs replacing was making these go off to quick even though we had turned it up, looking at the pictures on your site is quite deceiving because the garden is over grown and steps very slippery and no handle rail at the top

We knew the outdoor space was up a flight of stairs and that there was seating at the top.. A table as well as chairs may be a nice addition. Unfortunately due to the weather we never managed to sit out.

We had a lovely stay at Aultmore, the cottage was at the quieter end of Kingussie High St.. It is in a very good place for exploring around the area, we had very good days in the Highland Folk Museum, Beauly, Inverness, Ruthven Barracks, and the highlight of the trip to Culloden Battlefield (brilliant and very touching) then on to Clava Cairns. Fort William,Glenfinnan Loch Ness and cruise, then on to Fort Augustus, full itinerary all week. The Duke of Gordon Hotel, very good food and value for money friendly bar staff. When we arrived we first at Joe’d chippy very good food no problems with the service either no wait eating in. Recommend Kingussie v. good.

Aultmore is a real home from home, warm, well equipped, comfortable for a week's stay.. Recommended. Situated in a good location to explore the surrounding location.

We decided to go to Kingussie without our car and rely on public transport for getting around as it's a long drive from where we live and we don't like driving on motorways.. This worked relatively well. The village has good links up and down the valley (bus and train). Obviously, you have to plan more and there are walks higher in the mountains you can't reach. The vilage has a good butcher and Coop as well as a few cafes and restaurants so being car free did not restrict us in terms of shopping ang eating either. In fact, we felt we had more interaction with village life without it.

We loved the location of this little house.. From kingusse we visited Inverness and Loch Ness. We had two days out walking up the Caingorms at Aveimore which was so pretty covered in snow. Unfortunately , the fenicular mountain railway is shut until at least summer, so we didn't get to ride it but that just meant more walking. We canoed on Loch Morlich where there is a fab beach and water sport facilities with the stunning backdrop of the mountains. We visited Tomatin distillery and had a tour. We visited kingusse wildlife park which was interesting but expensive we felt. Impressed that they have the only polar bear cub to be born in the UK in 25 yrs, and they have a great compound there. My husband and myself were fine with the house and would stay again or recommend it, however our 20 yr old daughter found the heating of water a trial. There are storage heaters overnight which we all felt kept the house warm just right in the day. But there was meant to be a tank full of hot water in the mornings, which was lukewarm and we had to keep putting the booster time switch on for a bit, to ensure one of us never ended up short of hot. It just took more time to get ready and out in mornings. In the evenings you could make a fire and the back boiler would boost the hot water but we only had the first three nights chilly enough for needing the fire, as in the last week of April we had great, sunny warm weather. For our first visit to Scotland we were pleased with the house, the area and all of the places we went. We will return, and if we wanted to visit more in this area would use Aultmore house again. In Newtonmore up the road, we had a lovely meal in a little restaurant called the letterbox, which we would recommend but book ahead.

Kingussie seems to have more charm than some of the other tourist areas and despite having an address on the High Street, the cottage was in a peaceful location with good, easily accessible local facilities.. The locals are very friendly and helpful.

We as a family had a fantastic holiday in Aultmore.. House is equipped with all daily conveniences and supermarket is around the corner. An ideal starting point for making day trips / walks and exploring Scotland in this way. In summary, we are very happy that we have chosen this cottage for our short holiday.

Clean comfortable cottage, conveniently near to shop & railway station as we didn’t take the car.. Lovely walks nearby and good rail access to the Highlands, two very nice local cafe/coffee shops in the village. There was no welcome pack i.e. bread & milk which would have been helpful as we arrived by train late in the evening after the co-op shop had closed, however plenty of fuel for the wood burning stove was provided in a wood store outside the back door which was great. Pleasantly surprised to find that the over bath shower was very modern and powerful. Overall a very enjoyable winter break with the highlight being a trip on the Cairn Gorm funicular railway and watching skiers from the comfort of the viewing area at the top.

If anything the listing for Aultmore undersold the attractiveness of the accommodation e.. G. a "shower over bath" listing gave me the impression of a rather basic "crouch in the bath and hose yourself down" type of facility but in fact the shower was perfect it simply wasn't in a free standing shower tray. The owner contacted us by text before arrival, by phone when we turned up, and again by text when we were leaving - friendly and concerned on every occasion. Some winter cottages leave only a very mean fire starter supply of a few pieces of kindling and a handful of logs. Aultmore provided plenty of fuel (which actually we were happy replenish). Our only note of discomfort was the cold kitchen but then we were there over the coldest winter in Scotland for the past 30 years so we are not complaining. I would have no hesitation in recommending Aultmore to anyone looking to get into the highlands but avoid the commercial atmosphere of Aviemore.

It was a very lovely and typically Scottish Holiday House. We spend there a wonderful time with our family. The house is in the near of many tourists attractions.
