In the heart of Abernethy Forest, a truly charming, cosy, traditional wooden cottage.  Ideal for couples or families (sleeps 4-5); surrounded by forest, fields and hills.  The great outdoors on your doorstep.  Just tow and a half miles from Nethy Bridge, Bennachie is an original forestry cottage ideally situated for exploring Abernethy forest.  Loch Garten is a ten minute bike ride away and you can walk out of the door into the Cairngorms and Speyside.

“You won’t find a cottage better equipped to ensure you enjoy the remarkable natural habitat of the Cairngorms and Speyside”

The cottage is situated in the delightful hamlet of Straanruie, in the attractive Tulloch countryside, and set in its own garden, the cottage has a beautiful, bright, dining/living room with wood-burning stove, French windows and open views south and west.  There’s also a snug, wood-panelled sitting-room, also with wood-burning stove;  three bedrooms, double, twin and single.  The large bathroom with bath and shower has recently been modernised.  Off the attractive entrance/sun-room, is the brand-new galley kitchen with electric cooker, fridge and freezer.  A spin-dryer, iron and ironing-board are also available.  There’s electric central heating throughout.

This is the perfect place to get away from it all.  Rejoice!  There’s no TV or WiFi; just beautiful countryside and bird song (but you can get phone reception and emails in the house).  Lots of books for all ages, board games and a snooker table.  We’re right away from the road, so this is a great place for children; biking on forest tracks, bird and deer watching; total freedom to roam!
