At the end of a private road and with views across to Cairngorm Mountain is the quiet and peaceful Scottish Highlands retreat of Achnahatnich House. Originally a farmhouse on the Rothiemurchus Estate dating back to the 1900s, it has since been renovated to become a luxurious holiday home.
Sleeping up to six guests the interior design has a modern Scandinavian feel, making it light, bright, and practical, but with quirky touches throughout. The spacious living room is welcoming with a large comfy sofa sitting in front of the wood burner and flat screen television. At the other end of the ground floor is the roomy and fully equipped kitchen, complete with range cooker, dishwasher, two fridges and a freezer, wine cooler, and coffee making machine. It also has a dining table and chairs seating up to six people and a separate utility room.
There are three king size bedrooms split across the two levels at Achnahatnich House, with the first located on the ground floor and accompanied by an en-suite toilet and shower room. Heading upstairs leads to the other two bedrooms, both with spectacular views across the surrounding countryside. One has an adjacent bathroom, while the master suite enjoys the use of an en-suite with a decadent freestanding bath and a separate shower.
Fully embrace nature while sitting out at the front of the house and watch the changing colours on the mountains. Pheasants, swallows, and curlews all live in this beautiful corner of Scotland. For those who want to enjoy an even better view they can make the climb up to the sit-out-erie at the top of the hill behind the house, which looks out towards Lairig Ghru - the iconic mountain pass leading to Deeside and Braemar.
There is plenty to discover and explore in this rural part of the UK, with Cairngorms National Park a haven for outdoor activities and attractions. In the summer go horse riding, canoeing, or fishing, while in the winter the area becomes a superb place for skiing. For younger guests why not visit the Landmark Forest Adventure Park? While history lovers might enjoy the Highland Folk Museum. After that, whet your whistle with a tour at the Dalwhinnie Distillery.
The house is on the Rothiemurchus Estate which offers a huge range of outdoor activities and wildlife experiences.
