About the property

A warm and stylish holiday home in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park

Welcome to The Mole Catcher's Cottage. This picturesque cottage can be found in the Highland village of Carrbridge in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park.

The cottage is situated on the banks of the River Dulnain overlooking the famous old packhorse bridge.

Whether seeking outdoor adventure or simply wanting to enjoy the spectacular landscape, the cottage provides the perfect base for couples, families or for sharing with friends.

The Mole Catcher's Cottage is steeped in local history.

Originally built in the 1800's as a traditional worker's cottage, it is so named in memory of one of its past residents who was indeed the local mole catcher.

Today the cottage is owned by The Norton family who have lovingly renovated and extended the property to create a spacious open plan living area with two quirky attic bedrooms cleverly blending all the character of a traditional Highland cottage with a contemporary Scandinavian-inspired interior.

This warm and stylish holiday home comprises a boot room, a spacious open plan kitchen, dining and living area, a large downstairs bathroom with walk in shower and upstairs leading to the attic bedrooms - one with a double bed and the other with two singles.

There is a fridge, microwave, electric hob and cooker, dishwasher, washing machine and drying rack along with a TV and internet access.

Please note that the ceilings in the attic bedrooms and relatively low.

Also please note that the cottage is not really suitable for children under the age of 10 years.
