Description

This extremely well-appointed, detached house offers a high standard of comfort in a wonderful rural setting in the heart of the Crown Estate of Glenlivet, which consists of nearly 90 square miles of glens, forestry and moorlands between the Ladder and Cromdale Hills within the Cairngorm National Park. Literally next door to the famous Glenlivet Whisky Distillery (open to visitors), the house commands fine views from the upstairs over glorious countryside which is teeming with excellent walks, a diverse range of wildlife and historical places of interest including Drumin Castle and Packhorse Bridge. All the family can find something to do on a holiday in Glenlivet. In addition to walking, the landscape of rolling hills also provides excellent mountain biking and horse riding on an extensive network of waymarked trails. The community welcomes visitors, and traditional courtesies remain, in an area where there is still a sense of peace and quiet that is fast disappearing elsewhere. The village of Tomintoul is just a short drive away with some interesting shops, eateries, a museum and leisure activities including tennis and riding school. Skiing is available in the winter months with easy access from the house to the Lecht and Cairngorms slopes. Further afield, Grantown on Spey, Aviemore, Inverness and the Moray coastline make for some good days out.

About the local area

With a rare wildlife stronghold and a landscape shaped by the ice ages the Cairngorms National Park is full of scenic variety and has a treasure trove of natural wonders for you to enjoy.

Walk the Cairngorms hills which were formed when the last age covered this country. With landscapes characterized by high, rounded humps carved through deep and spectacular gorges the variety of geology in the area is truly amazing. It is also home to a fantastic array of rare wildlife. One quarter of Britain's 400 most rare and endangered wildlife species are protected within the park. If you are lucky you might spot such species as the golden eagle, otter, pine marten, osprey and Red kite sheltering in amongst the sub-Arctic and mountain plants.

The glens of Isla, Prosen, Clova and Mark are well known destinations for walkers as they are all easily accessible by car. They offer low level walks but also provide access to tougher long distance hikes into the south east section of the park. Make sure you take the funicular railway up nearly 1,200m to the summit of CairnGorm Mountain to enjoy spectacular views.

As well as the impressive uplands in the area the lochs and rivers in the region are home to some world class salmon fishing, wildlife and habitats making it yet another area not to be missed. The waters offer a variety of scenic delights including gorges, waterfalls and tranquil expanses of streams.

For woodland and forest walks visit Loch an Eilein on the Rothiemurchus Estate in the heart of Caledonian Pine Forest. Or if you are in search of a beach visit Loch Morlich where the sandy expanse proves popular with fisherman and water sports enthusiasts.

Many attractions are connected with the area's history or wildlife and are great places to learn more about the natural wonders that surround you. Whether you have a passion for wildlife, whisky or walking, or simply want to have fun, you will never be short of something new to experience in this wonderful area of The Cairngorms National Park.
