Your Perfect Getaway

In the heart of the Cairngorm National Park Loch Cottage has been created exclusively for couples and offers luxurious self catering accommodation for two on the edge of the attractive and highly popular village of Boat of Garten.

Loch Cottage is the result of a long standing project by the owners Helen and Alex, to create something that has all the facilities that discerning guests could wish for. Active members of the local community and passionate about the area, they are on hand to offer advice on any aspect of your holiday should you need it. Renovated to a very high standard with the emphasis on quality, Loch Cottage was brand new to the holiday market for autumn 2019. Short breaks or longer stays are available all year round.

Boat of Garten is the perfect location for your holiday as it has excellent local facilities within walking distance whilst being in a great situation to explore the UK’s largest national park including the many attractions of the Spey Valley and beyond to places like Royal Deeside, the Malt Whisky Trail, the Moray coast and Inverness.

Boat of Garten

This small Highland community, sitting on the River Spey in the heart of the Cairngorm National Park, is called the Osprey Village. It was the first place in Scotland to be recolonised by ospreys in the 1950’s and the RSPB osprey centre is a short distance away at Loch Garten.

Boat of Garten is the perfect location for relaxing, exploring the park and the rest of Highland Scotland, or indulging in the innumerable outdoor activities from the likes of walking, mountain biking and water-sports, to golf, clay shooting and fishing. 


Loch Cottage News

Glen Feshie, just the other side of Aviemore from Boat of Garten, is one of the finest glens in Scotland. Most of the Glen is part of the Cairngorms Connect partnership, which is the largest natural restoration project in Europe. The partnership has a 200 year vision to re-establish natural habitat and species across its 600 square kilometre area, but it is already a stunning and unspoilt area with fantastic walking and biking. This picture today in glorious weather shows the heather just starting to come out on the hillsides

This picture taken from Craig Dubh above Glen Eanaich gives a great few of the Spey Valley around the Boat of Garten area basking in glorious sunshine. Boat itself is in the middle distance, top middle on the right hand side of the picture with Aviemore rather closer on the left side. The foreground is mainly the Rothiemurchus estate with Loch an Eilean just out of the picture round to the left. It is just possible to make out Ben Wyvis on the distant horizon which is about 50 miles away, north of Inverness
