MORE: The Sangar is tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac in one of the most beautiful and sparsely occupied parts of Scotland. It is an exceptionally comfortable, spacious, centrally heated cottage with all 'mod cons' and is ideal for families as so many past guests confirm in their reviews. A large woodland garden has several areas in which it is great to relax, and kids just love exploring their specially maintained paths through the heather and woods. A fine old gas BBQ and outdoor garden furniture sit close to our hyperactive red squirrels which never fail to entertain & delight. We are at the heart of the Cairngorms National Park which contains a multitude of amazing attractions. From golf to fishing, skiing to sailing, wild-life photography and unusual outdoor & indoor activities to keep kids (and adults) interested and amused. The list is almost endless and visitors return year after year to enjoy the hospitality of the area and its people. Please refer to the many other sources of information as there really is so much to do. And do read the many excellent Reviews our guests - from all over the world - have been leaving. You'll love The Sangar. That's a promise!More

Interaction with guests
Although we live some distance away from The Sangar, we have housekeepers and good friends very close by who - should you wish it - will always be happy to help you with anything, small or large. My wife Liz and I make every effort to ensure the highest possible standards for guests and are always available via email, text, FaceTime, WhatsApp and Skype and, of course, telephone. We've enjoyed The Sangar for over 35 years and now you can too.

The location of the Sangar is perfect. Very quiet location but al lot of adventures and exciting activities in the region. A stone's throw away from the lovely Loch Insh, breeding place of the osprey bird. The Sangar is an very well maintained holiday residence....More

My pleasure Wim. And your Osprey pics were some of the best I've seen from Loch Insh. Well done!

We enjoyed our stay at The Sanger very much. The house was clean, had a very good couch and an Nespresso coffee machine (i usually bring my own on Holidays). The only small downside i could imagine is that the third room is only reachable...More

Thanks Leon. Sorry you felt unable to keep up our unblemished five bubble record, presumably due to the third bedroom arrangement. It's not ideal for everyone and we do point this out in advance where it could be an issue. Anyway, glad you had a...More

One word: Perfect. The home was beautiful and incredibly accommodating and helpful with local advice of things to do and see. We had incredibly warm weather and were outside hiking or being leisurely at many of the nearby lakes. I cannot highly recommend this home...More

About the neighbourhood
There is a local pub, the Suie, which is very popular with our guests. Unfortunately. the previously well-stocked village shop was sold last year & has not reopened as a general store. The Dalraddy Caravan Park shop does stock most essentials and is only a few minutes' drive away. There are much bigger shopping facilities and numerous restaurants to suit all tastes & prices in both Kingussie (5 miles) and Aviemore (5 miles) and Inverness is an easy 30 minutes' drive. There are many walks in the country starting from The Sangar. It is unnecessary to drive although personal transport does open up many more possibilities for exploration. The Loch Insh Watersports Centre is 3 minutes by car and offers a great range of excellent facilities.
Getting around
Buses to local towns and villages as well as Inverness, Glasgow & Edinburgh stop within 7 minutes' walk of The Sangar (1 minute by car). Trains to and from every major destination (including overnight sleepers to London) are best boarded at Aviemore. Inverness Airport is less than an hour's drive to the north. There are many local taxis.
