Traditional cottages with superb views of the Cairngorms, set in 13,000 acres of stunning highland scenery Alvie Estate stretches from the River Spey, over the Monadhliath Mountains to the Dulnain river. Just 5 minutes south of Aviemore makes Alvie the perfect place for exploring the Highlands.
With self catered accommodation sleeping from 4 to 10 guests your stay can be combined with a wide variety of activities such as Clay Pigeon Shooting, Archery, Zip Wire Park, Horse Riding, Quad Bike Treks, Bushcraft Survival Techniques as well as the usual country sports you would expect to find on a Highland Estate.
All good as always, but with some challenges:
- not enough lids for pots
- the heating seemed a bit too much at different times with bedroom windows (those that could open) kept open during the night
while radiators pumped out heat
- some matches for the fire for the first night would have been handy
We have just come back from a great week on Alvie Estate. We are a family of 4 and the Farmhouse we stayed in was perfect for us and had everything that we needed. It was warm, cosy and well laid out and everything in the house was in excellent condition! The location is fantastic, not only do you have great views from the house but the surrounding area is stunning and there is so much to do from lots of walking to fun activities. If you are looking for a quiet location with easy access to everything then we would highly recommend this place. We loved it and will be back!
We had a lovely stay at Park Cottage. The location is excellent with stunning views. The cottage layout was perfect for us and the beds were comfy. The cottage could do with some upgrading, it looks a little tired in places. We struggled a bit with the shower which went from icy cold to very hot. Some of the wallpaper was peeling and there were a lot of cobwebs up high. Overall we loved staying in the cottage, thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and hope to return next year.
It was like always, a wonderful time on Alvie that happened way too fast. All people were helpful and friendly, you can not ask for more! I am looking forward to the next stay there. Greetings Wolfgang
Wester Dalfour is a lovely little cottage with all the amenities necessary for a week-long stay. You might say it’s a bit frayed around the edges but we found that added to its rustic charm.
The view is sensational!
