“A delightful haven”
Reviewed 7 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

This cottage is in a lovely haven in a beautiful and peaceful location yet with easy access to the A9 and all the sights and attractions within the Cairngorms. The photos do not do the cottage justice. It's exceedingly well equipped and very tastefully furnished. A complete joy to return to after a days out winter walking or on the mountains as it was so wRm & cosy. We would wholeheartedly recommend this cottage and plan to return again.

Thank you for your kind review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay here with us at Glentruim Estate, and that Gate Lodge met with your approval. I must agree, the photographs do not do the cottage, nor its location, justice, but we hope to update the photographs on the website very shortly.
We would love to welcome you back in future.

“Everything we hoped for”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My wife, our eldest son and I have just had a wonderful stay at the Gate lodge. The previous reviews about Deidre are spot on: she was very welcoming, yet respectful of your privacy. The Lodge is very well appointed and clean. The dishwasher and washer/tumble drier worked really well and we also enjoyed the log burner on wetter days. The kitchen/diner is a good size and the Lodge would comfortably put up four people, assuming a double bed and two singles is an agreeable arrangement! The wireless Internet was also very useful to us. There are a couple of bird tables and after putting out a little food, we saw a variety of birds, including a woodpecker. The view outside the Lodge is spectacular and every evening we sat at the table and chairs with a glass of wine just enjoying the changing scenery. Beautiful walks can also be enjoyed around the estate and there is no shortage of things to do in the area. This holiday was everything we hoped for and we had a wonderful time here.

“The perfect place in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

With his two spacious bedrooms, a generous living room cum kitchen and a modern bathroom this well equipped cottage (from dishwasher and microwave to maps, books and DVDs you find everything you need) was the ideal place to stay! Everything was in perfect condition, clean and functional and Deidre gave us a warm wellcome. The cosy cottage, the private garden and the woods surrounding it made it difficult for us every day to leave, in order to visit the many attractions of the Cairngorm area. We can only recommend it!
