Villa in Grantown-on-Spey, Scottish Highlands, Scotland - Quiet Location, Yet Within Walking Distance Of All Local Amenities And The River Spey. Rosemount is a large and spacious detached Victorian villa set in a secure 1/3 acre garden and grounds. Situated in Grantown-on-Spey, it is ideally located for all local amenities and yet on the doorstep of the beautiful 18th century Anagach Woods and the world famous River Spey. With comfort and luxury in mind, we completely refurbished our home in 2012/13. Rosemount comfortably sleeps 8 in 4 spacious bedrooms on the first floor. The ground floor consists of the lounge, snug, large open-plan kitchen / diner, utility room and well equipped games room including a brand new American Pool table, added summer 2016! There are 2 bathrooms, one with walk-in shower and the other with separate bath and walk-in shower. In addition to the newly installed oil-fired central heating we have two wood burning stoves. Rosemount is also our own much loved holiday home and we have furnished and equipped it to a standard that we always looked for when renting holiday homes in the past.

This house is perfect. Well equipped, comfortable, cosy and in a perfect location. We were a group of 4 adults and 2 kids - Our 2 kids (9/11) loved the trampoline and the pool table and indeed so did the big kids! Great walks both direct from the house and within short distance by car. My kids want to book again for next year, we may become regulars. Thank you for sharing your lovely holiday home.

We had a wonderful stay at Rosemount -clearly a much loved home with lots of attention to detail. We felt very much at home immediately with lovely touches such as ready set fires in the log burners and a great welcome hamper with the essentials and more. Right on the doorstep of woodland trails which was perfect for walking the dogs. We loved getting out and about but were secretly grateful for a rainy day so we could just cosy up in this house. Perfect and we will be back. Thank you Elaine !

Great stay in a wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

Great holiday in a very nice home! Everything was clean and tidy. Spacious and convenient. Wi-Fi is working well, there are two TVs, a pool table and much more. Also Grantown is a good central spot to start exploring the Speyside and visit whisky distilleries. Will surely book again!

- Description of the house was accurate

- Clean property and well maintained

- The owner was very nice and helpful before, during and after the stay

Make sure to visit 'The Craig Bar' a few houses down the street. Nice pies and a very charismatic bartender! (Robbie)

Enjoy your stay!

Beautiful property well fitted out

  • 5 of 5

We had planned for more people to stay for longer so we rather rattled around this sizeable property. We are used to Scotland, so the weather didn't faze us, although on the whole I think we were lucky with it (Don't forget your waterproofs). We had our Labrador with us and the whole place was eminently suitable and dog friendly. The garden is now a tad small for the property but is plenty good enough for a short stay. We found lots of things to do, we walked the forest, up to the viewpoints, from Aviemore to Boat of Garten, up Cairngorm (no dogs allowed up the railway), and around the Osprey centre woods (although the dog wasn't allowed in the centre itself). The highlight of my stay was watching salmon leaping at the falls of Shin and also at Rogie falls - we were intending to go and see the Moray dolphins, but ran out of time. The Strathspey railway was useful for a rainy day, as were distillery tours. We visited Balmoral, and the scenery on the way was stunning! Ballater is a lovely town too. We also did a 4x4 experience on the Alvie estate near Aviemore. All in all we had a lovely holiday, and recommend the house and area to everyone.

A lovely traditional house.

  • 5 of 5

The property is traditional but very nicely updated, thoughtfully equipped and a pleasure to stay in. The street is very quiet, the village has all the essentials you need and there are great places within easy reach in all directions.

For anyone wanting a quiet, peaceful country getaway this has it all. We loved our stay and wished we could have been there longer.

About Elaine Wood

I live in Edinburgh with my husband, 2 children and 2 labradors.

Elaine Wood purchased this house in 2012

Why Elaine Wood chose Grantown-on-Spey

We wanted to invest in a holiday home and Rosemount was the house we fell in love with. We make the short trip up north as often as we can, but due to work commitments cannot live there permanently.

We hope you enjoy holidaying in our home as much we do!

What makes this house unique

Rosemount has the rare combination of being on the doorstep of the great outdoors, with all the Cairngorm National Park has to offer and yet conveniently located one street away from the High Street of Grantown-on-Spey. This small highland town has all the amenities you will need for your Highland holiday.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been to many self catering, dog-friendly holiday homes in the past but none as luxurious as Rosemount. Mrs C McDonald, Edinburgh May 2013

We had a wonderfully relaxed girls weekend at Rosemount, the showers are amazing! Mrs M Saunders, Milnathort, June 2013.
