The detail

Stepping into this village home is like stepping onto the pages of a romantic novel. A moody medley of forest green and rust-red velvet sofas in the living room whisper of days gone by – the picture completed by a wood-burner set in an old fireplace carved with celtic twists. In the parlour, an upright piano awaits for someone to compose a song inspired by heather-bruised hills and craggy mountain passes.

Or, perhaps choose something from the book collection and settle into a wing-backed armchair. Bedrooms are packed with paperbacks to find your next indulgent read, perhaps while soaking in the claw-footed tub of the master bathroom. Contrary to the rest of the home, the kitchen is bright and airy, but an exposed stone wall still suggests the building’s history.

A welcome hamper of bubbly, tea, coffee and toiletries awaits your arrival. Spend the evening outside, gathered around the fire pit, or watching for shooting stars from the comfy sofas on the deck. The peaceful village of Carrbridge has a grocery shop and a handful of cosy pubs.

You’re in the Cairngorms National Park here, so you may want to lace up those walking boots and bag some munros, or head to Speyside and sample some of the world-famous whisky distilleries.

Spanning over four and a half thousand square kilometres and with a population of just eighteen thousand, the UK’s largest national park, Cairngorms, is a haven for nature lovers and outdoor explorers. Without the buzz of endless traffic, wildlife thrives here all year round, and you can spot capercaillies, red squirrels and even wild deer – if you visit in late autumn, you may hear the thundering clash of locked antlers during the Red Deer Rut.

This place feels like the last true wilderness in the UK, where outdoor survivalist courses run on craggy mountainsides and hiking, biking, and kayaking routes feature in abundance. And yet, a string of towns and villages provide a place to relax and refuel, acting as gateways to the endless beyond.

Ballater in the east perhaps boasts the most bustle about it, where you’ll find plenty of shops, cafés, pubs, and a litany of outdoor centres to cater to your every whim. On the other side of the park’s highest peak, Ben Macdui, towns like Aviemore provide family-friendly entertainment in the form of wildlife parks and the scenic Strathspey Steam Railway.
