About the property

Come and stay in the beautiful village of Carrbridge with its historic bridge

Welcome to Squirrel Apartment, a recently refurbished 2 bedroom ground floor self catering property in Speyside in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park - ideal for outdoor and nature lovers. Our cosy and comfortable recently renovated apartment sleeps four, so is ideal for couples or families who are looking to explore the area, take part in the numerous activities available locally, or simply relax and enjoy the beautiful Scots Pine forests that surround us.

Squirrel has two bedrooms (double and twin), fully fitted kitchen, family bathroom and large living/dining room with French doors onto its own elevated private fenced garden , well above the Dulnain River. There is secure bike storage for up to four bikes and bike washing facilities.

The apartment is attached and behind a family house and has its own private entrance and parking. It is warm and cosy due to the gas central heating and double glazing and there is plenty of hot water on demand. Wifi is available but is occasionally temperamental.

All towels and linens are provided and electricity is included within the cost of the rental.

Carrbridge is a small village set amongst Scots Pine woodland in the Cairngorms National Park, a great place for outdoor adventures. Carrbridge hosts one of many scenic golf courses in the area, the Rivers Spey and Dulnain are well known for their Salmon fishing and Cairngorm Mountain offers great skiing and snow-boarding facilities.

For those who prefer life at a more leisurely pace, the bird and nature watching in the area is excellent.

And if you just want to chill out, Aviemore is a 10 minute drive and has shops, restaurants, swimming pool and a cinema. Landmark Forest Park is a short walk away and Carrbridge has cafes, pub/restaurants and an Artists Studio all within walking distance.

Unfortunately we are unable to accept pets due to family allergies.

Superb apartment in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week at Squirrel Apartment. The apartment is in a lovely location. A few minutes walk in one direction takes you into the forest, a few minutes in the other direction you find a walk along the river. Shop, cafe and pub are close by too. The apartment is very comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed, and there were books and puzzles to keep us busy in the evening.

The village of Carrbridge is a great location to access all sorts of activities, especially with a toddler in tow! We visited in August and managed to visit Loch Ness, Strathspey Railway, The Reindeer Centre, Highland Wildlife Park, Landmark Adventure Park, and The Cairngorm Funicular Railway. We could easily have filled up a second week!

We also took advantage of the bike storage. I had a cyclocross/gravel bike with me, and there is a lot of challenging terrain, including the road up to Cairngorm, and the Burma road (a traffic free gravel/dirt track connecting Aviemore and Carrbridge).

Excellente location à Carrbridge

  • 5 of 5

Nous nous sommes beaucoup plus dans l'appartement de Michelle à Carrbridge. Il est très confortable, très bien équipé et bien décoré. Il est idéal pour 4 personnes et bien situé, au calme dans la nature. Il est proche d'Inverness. Michelle est une excellente hôtesse, elle nous a très bien accueillis et a été là pour toutes nos demandes.

Je vous le recommande.
